this is not a mod related question

If its for a clan, you would be better off renting a server rather than running one from a home PC. A server needs lots of bandwidth up and and down - in fact the upload is more important than the download as the server needs to transmit server 'gamestate' to each player.

However, if renting is not an option, perhaps you can start by telling me the system specs. How much RAM do you have? Whats the system cpu? How many players are you thinking of hosting?

As tally said it depends on what upload speed you have on your internet, I running a pretty fastest home internet speed, 10mb broadband at 480Kb up and down and the most i could get on the server sensibly was 12 slots, anymore and it gets unstable and ping goes crazy and lags out. Im now renting a server but i still use my home internet server from time to time to run a 10 slot rifle range or something lol. This is a quick and easy way on how to start a cod/coduo server from home if you still fancy giving it a go. 1. You need to make a .cfg file.... for this example to work ive called it config.cfg. here's a site that will help with that. http://www.typhoonservers.com/modules.php?name=coduobuilderver2 (instructions included at this site) 2. Place the .cfg file in your /uo folder 3. Create a new shortcut of your coduomp.exe (The one you start the multiplayer game with) you can rename this shortcut if you like to 'server start' or whatever. 4. Right click on the new shortcut and go to properties, edit the target file so it says..... "C:\Program Files\Call of Duty\CoDUOMP.exe" +set dedicated 2 +exec config.cfg +map_rotate (You can add more to the command line later but this will get you started, NOTE THE SPACES) 5. Double click the shortcut and your online (p.s. its just a console screen that runs not the actual game, to join in the game start your multiplayer the normal way and leave the console screen running, hence making a new shortcut) If the server is not on the internet menu and only in your LAN menu then you need to change your firewall settings to allow dmz/port forwarding... this depends on the hardware you have for that tho.

Oh i just remembered :rolleyes: unless you have a fresh install of cod you will more than likely have some mods installed from other servers you have played on... Id delete these files to be sure that theres no conflicts etc as the server your starting will more than likely try and run them.
