Ive recently moved into my new house for uni with some mates and have now set up a router so we can all access the net at the same time. However the problem with this is that now i am no longer able to host a server, well i am but only via lan (even when i selected dedicated to net), is there a way to enable me to be able to host on the net?
you have to use the router's firmware. I don't know what router you have, but on mine - I have to designate port and to which machine ....
ahh yeah i thought it'd be something like that net forwading thingy. on mine i have
Private IP, Type, Port Range, Comment
for private i type my external ip yeah? for type is it tcp or udp, or both? and port range is 28960 im guessing (thats what i get when used to host a server on uo)
hmm i have actually i have
Port Forwarding Virtual Server Special Applications
i just used port forwarding and it worked but dunno if thats what ur menna use

yes, that sounds right. basically, you have to tell the router to route data from/to specific ports to a selected computer. you can determine the ports required form the game docs.
You need to have admin access to your router in order to perform these changes. If you do it will be similar to the following 1. Acess options 2. General Setup 3. NAT settings 4. Port forwarding 5. Enter your ip and a port number
