I have Verizon DSL and a Linksys 4 plug router (only using 2 plugs)

My LAN games work great & I can host a normal net game if I open some router ports and the DMZ but can’t get a dedicated sever to work on net games (don't know why, you can see the game but it wont let anyone in),

Any help would be great (router settings ect)

try running a program called antiyports while the server is started (on the server machine) and make sure any ports that bf1942.exe is using are open. I had the same problem and found a port I needed to open that I wasn't aware of. Also if you do a "Google" search for bf1942 server ports you find a listing of all the other ports that need to be opened
