Are you talking about running a dedicated server then trying to join it? If so, that's not the best idea ever.

Whether you are the master or not makes no difference. If you are on a wireless network you will be behind a router. Your router has it's own IP address and so when you start a server on a computer behind the router anyone who attempts to join via the internet will try to connect to the router, not your computer itself. If you want to make a game you have 2 primary options: 1) As Cartographer said set up a dedicated server 2) Plug yourself directly into the internet. I have a feeling that option 1 will not work as the dedicated server will still use your IP, but you could try it anyway.

No, I think I phrased my post slightly wrong. I thought that was what he was trying to do, and it was failing. I was talking about the lag you can get running haloded.exe and halo.exe at the same time, not suggesting an idea.
