I have been wondering how to create a clan server because {EFH} Needs more members etc etc... blablabla. I just want to know how to create one for free (no extra cash) EF1 would be best but EF2 would work too. Oh and I want to create on so I can play on my srver using the same Mac.

well, there is not really a way to have a good server for free, unless you have a very fast internet connection. Then you can keep the server up 24h a day and have a low ping too, but then Im talking about raelly fast internet, like 1024/768 kb/s minimum :P Plus, you need a high memory level and other stuff a very good pc has :P

If you have all that, or if oyu just want to know, I can tell you how to set up an own server ;) cs

Weeellll... I run servers on my connection and its 512mb and its fine. Not dedicated though. Simple to do.

If you are on a network and behind a NAT router/ hardware firewall, you will need to go into the settings of the Router and set virtual server or "DMZ". Set the ports you want to run the game on to go to the local IP address of your system, then boot the game up, start a server and have fun. Any local firewalls may need to allow the game to act as a server. If you are not on a network (direct modem connection to the net) then you just boot the game up, start a game server and have fun. again personal firewall may need to be changed to allow it.

As has already been said in the thread, you run a server by setting up your router if you have one as i explained, then starting Elite Force, and then simply selecting the options to host a network game.... it really is that easy.
