Hey all its moi Dougamer, Alls i need help is with my server, now when i put my server up (deticated) no-one can seem to find it! Even when i'm in there AND a bot. Now would not having admin rights affect that? Can ANYONE help me please? Thanx, Dougamer:naughty:

maybe you have a router and you didn't forward ports correctly... or you set the game dedicated to a LAN in stead of internet... or you are hosting your server on a 56k, so it is automatically filtered out due to sucky ping.

Hey Leathal Bannana, My ISP is Eastern Wireless (u probably never heard ov it) and what happens is we have an adapter and it runs by ethernet, we have an arial on roof, which send's info to a station.....And hey, could u tell me what ports i have to open? And does it matter if firewall is on?

Oh, and no i set the settings to Deticated Internet NOT lan, my connection is 256k so i can only host an 8 player server right? What would be the best ammount ov peeps? AND would using teh admin mod affect it, AND does the Windows XP SP2 affect having a server?

XP SP2 comes with a firewall. You're gonna have to open the correct ports to run a server.

Go here to see how.

you also have to edit your SOF2MP.CFG, adding in some master servers listings.

i wouldn't bother with making servers if you only have a 256k connection... it'll probably host 2 or 3 ppl fine, but with more it will become laggy :(
