Ok...I have 2 copies of EF2 that I bought from Gamespot. Both have their own valid CD keys. Both do work, that's not my problem...I copied one of my copies and it runs fine.

I currently have a server that I set up for my brother, some of my friends, and I to play on. The problem is that I have to obviously run it as a dedicated server...is there a way that I can let them play (my friends)? When they try to connect it says Invalid CD Key on my server. The keys for their copies I got from a key gen. I know that they won't work on normal internet games...but is there a way that they can get to my server?

You obviously need to READ the readme before installing. There are copyright laws pertaining to making copies of the game. What you did was ILLEGAL. The best thing to do is to uninstall the copy and go purchase a second copy of the game for your brother. People these days....

I KNOW you bought two copies of the game. It is that you COPIED ONE OF THOSE CDs that is illegal. Using a CD key generator is also illegal.
