Hfx_Rebel and this could be the solution to one of your problems; instead of using the same CD key on a couple different machines, purchase another game...problem solved.[/quote]No - if you had read my post completely then you had seen this line too.! I wrote: "BTW we got a lot of unjustified "invalid key" errors even if we got all legal different keys" Maybe this was still to much text for you so I write again the significant part in big letters: "WE GOT ALL LEGAL DIFFERENT KEYS"[/quote2] the only problem with this, is you left out the first part of your post...see below: [quote2=Rudi]So Danny telled me that he wants to disable the duplicat key kick (thx again) - but yesterday I noticed that it isnt possible anymore to play with 2 clients - same IP - same key on one server - even PB is off. [/quote2] [quote2=Rudi]

Hfx_Rebel

i think BITE_ME was just pointing out that the price of RtCW has come down alot [/quote]

interesting but off topic [/quote2] how can it be off topic...the thread title is: I just have to comment ...this is what i did. [quote2=Rudi]

[quote=Hfx_Rebel]

purchase another game...problem solved.

Or do you mean that I should buy 10 times RTCW to be able to play it on 4 machines? :confused: [/quote2] i'm not sure i follow, if you bought 10 copies of RtCW, you could play on 10 different machines. if your playing on 4 machines, you would only need 4 copies. [quote2=Rudi]

[quote=Hfx_Rebel]

probly none of my business

yes [/quote2] ok fine. [quote2=BITE_ME]rebel thanks for the understanding. and also i luv the new sig!!![/quote2] NP and paolo did an awesome job on it! :nodding: :thumbsup:

port --- the port which is used if I run a server net_port --- port which is used by the client for opening a connection qport --- the random port which is used by client (not changable!?) net_socksPort --- SOCKS5 server port to play behind a firewall (wtf is this?do I need it?)

I can't speak to the differences between these. Frankly, I hadn't known about qport. However, I do know that you HAVE to specify a different net_port for each client behind the same IP. It's probably just a matter of how the server side software is written. On my kids computer I user 27961 and can connect fine while my main computer is connected. If I don't include that in the command line, the first machine connected wins...

Today I had no connecting problems playing with two wolf clients (same key) on Lone Wolf, sooo it works from 1 IP. I only had one mouse so it was kinda hard to play against myself..... Danny

And you were on the upstream side of your router yes? (Coming in from the internet side and not part of the local network which would have given you multiple IPs and would not have required the net_port change)

@Queeg: BTW - during this I noticed that the second started client is using another port automatically! This evening I will try the same on 2 different machines in my LAN - IMO then both clients will starting with standard ports but the router should change the port of the second one automatically! I will tell you what happens exactly.

Yes this is also on my TODO-list if I have time to check this out - Plugging 2 graphic boards, 2 mouses, 2 keyboard, 2 monitors in your comp and then playing WW with 2 clients on the same machine. It should not be so difficult to find the right settings for your XF86config (resp. xorg.conf).

[QUOTE=Dragon]btw, biteme's replyes were on topic rudi.

Sorry Dragon - maybe I choosed wrong words but I was just bitching because I went mad. We are talking about interseting things here - which has nothing to do with illegal CD keys. Sometimes I cant understand that kind of replys which BiteMe or Rebel (and others) are doing all the time. If sombody is talking about PB or CD-keys then always are people comming calling him a cheater or pirat. I cant understand these kinds of comments as good as I cant understand the old men with hat who are telling me that I dont have to cross the street while red light. :deal:

Hi Queeg, Now I checked out the following:

Two compters (A and B) in LAN comp-A is connected directly to internet comp-B is using comp-A as router to get internet connection - so A does ip-forwarding and masquerading

First I start RTCW client on A then on B. Both clients are using default port 27960 but the router A changes automatically the port to another value. Here a picture of my outgoing traffic::

client on A: comp-A:27960 - > RTCWSERVER:27960 client on B: comp-B:27960 -> comp-A-forwarding/masquerading -> comp-A:1024 -> RTCWSERVER:27960

So maybe your router isnt able to change the port but what happens if for example 2 http-clients are using the same outgoing ports by random - are you in troubles then?

Yeah... could be...

I'm of course using a seperate hardware router...

I would not put one of my windows machines up as my gateway and guardian of the rest of my network. Eventually I'll setup a linux machine as my router and tarpit :) but till then I ain't trustin' Microsoft to keep things as tight as I want them. As a result, my network isn't quite as flexible as yours. So I very well may need to do things manually that you don't need to. For instance, I cannot simply open those ports. I HAVE to direct them to a specific machine. In your situation, I suspect that you can simply open the ports and not direct them anywhere. That alone forces me to use the net_port parameter...

So really you and I are discussing apples and oranges. They are not quite the same thing.

Cap.QueegFor instance, I cannot simply open those ports. I HAVE to direct them to a specific machine.I suspect that you can simply open the ports and not direct them anywhere. That alone forces me to use the net_port parameter...

If somebody opens a connection from internet to YOUR IP (for instance to port 80 if you have http-server) then its normal that you have to direct this traffic to exactly ONE machine. There is no other way for any router to find out for which machine these traffic is comming. So if you run 2 or more RTCW-SERVERS in LAN (which shall be aviable from internet) then you need different ports for them (if you have only one internet IP). BUT if we are talking about connection which are opened FROM one of your LAN-machines to somwhere in internet then the router is able to recognice where to route the answers from server. IMO here fails your router if both machines are using the same outgoing ports.
