MattrixHi I have a router and I want to run a server on my computer for sof2 and I need to know the ports for my router does anyone know them?

ok i use a router too, every where i go i see people saying ya need to forward the ports. however i feel this can be a complicated and long process of hit and miss. i could be wrong don't know i suggest going into your router's manager and looking for a thing called the dmz host. DMZ stands for demiltorized zone. it will forward all ports to what ever puter you asign it to. this will allow your server to be seen online by others. also note that although other can see you in the internet list you will only be able to see you on the local list. if ya use sof2 runner to start your server. where it asks for ip leave it blank, your puter will have two ip's behind a router. locally you will be connecting to your internal ip but people on the net will be connecting to your external ip. leave the ip placew blank on sof2 runner so both ip's can be seen either from local or from internet depending on where they coming from.......

Im not sure if I would suggest this. I have a limited knowlege of networking, but this is what I understand as true.

If you use the DMZ thing, you are in effect bypassing the router's firewall and making your computer completely visable on the internet - if you open the ports on the router, only those ports should be visable. This may be ok if you are running a firewall on your computer as well - but at least think about how open you are leaving your computer, and opening just those ports isnt difficult. Here is a thread where I tried to explain it. link at the bottom. That may or may not help, but its worth a read if you are curios about the matter.

Also about the net ip in sofrunner... I am behind a router as well and my local ip of my SoF2 server is 192.168.0.103 - and that is what is in SoF2 runner as well as in my .bat file I launch from.

I can be seeen in the master list - and not at my local address, at my internet IP, so the router is forewarding the address. Also for other PC's on the lan, the server doesnt show up in "local" lists but it does show in internet lists. This is because the ports on the router are open.

Also though i can connect in game to the local address either through the console or by adding a favorite at the local address.

yeah using dmz does opme ya puter up to the internet. But that is what god created firewalls for. A common mistake alot of people make is thinking that a router has a firewall in them. Some do some do not. the router will work as a fire wall to a degree due to having two ip addresses on them. however when it comes to blocked ports routers usually block more out going info then incoming.

forwarding the ports is prolly a safer route to take. i use the dmz host for it is a bit easier i think, and my firewall blocks any attempts of a average hacker trying to get in. my server as far as i have seen does not show up on the master list but only shows on local listing. from what i have read this is fairly common thing to have happen. if ya can see ya on the master but not on local, that may be due to port forwarding. i have tried to forward the ports and had no luck. but back to the subject yes dmz does put your puter in front of the router. it makes it like you are not using a router to connect to the internet. but in my opinion that chances of small guys like me and alot of other people out there actually getting hacked is miminal. most people that get hacked are people that are going places that they really shouldn't be going. ofcourse there are always exceptions and a good firewall is always recommended.

Okay, I have the same problem Mattrix has. Now I've opened these ports but I'm still not vissable. To give some information: Broadband Router Brand: Sweex We have cable internet

Do i have to change st within the game itselve perhaps???

@krankymonkee: what do you mean with (PB)??? Perhaps i've done st wrong with this?

PB = Punkbuster

Those are the ports you need to open for punkbuster to comunicate with the master server and update.

I have had the server not show up also if my ip was wrong in sof2runner. Once it was set on 192.168.0.102 and should have read 192.168.0.103, and it would not show on LAN or internet - I fixed that and it immediatly poped up on the internet list.

in an actuallity ...for your game to show up on all internet listings you should check what master servers the game is listed to ....this is in the cfg file in your base folder. if you are using a router....just DMZ it. and then download zonealarm. and use that. give zonealarm all teh permossions for your games..and when you want to play , just dmz the router and go off and play. zone alram works quite well...contrary to popular belief.

:notworking: well, the fucking server is still not vissable for other gamers (in the internetlist) (btw I want to start a server in v1.00). The only one who can see my server is me -sigh- I know i don't have a problem with my networksettings/ip like krankymonkee said. and i rather not DMZ our router, due to the fact that more people using internet frequently. When a mate off mine looks for my server with the use of ip-adress (add favorite), he sees an other server, not mine -sob-:beamme: does anybody have some other suggestions (perhaps i've set the router wrong, openend st wrong... I don't know!!!) :'(

Try this just to check and see if the router is blocking you.

1 Diconnnect the ethernet cable going into your WAN port of your router and plugit dirrectly into your server.

2 Restart the server.

3 Run sof2runner and reset the IP in it(click the button)

4 Start the server.

If other ppl see it on the internet, then the router is the issue - if still nothing, then you have atleast eliminated a question as to the cause(the router).

PS: Why are you trying to run a 1.0 server?
