I have a D-Link Router I think it's a 704 p model I'm at work so I can't look lol.. Anyway I Can't make a server and I can't use ftp's for others to download or upload, because of the fire wall. I've been to the site to find answers. but no solution there. Does anyone out there have a D-Link router and know How to bypass it. Or put the correct ports in, being I have 2 puters hooked up to it. your reply's would be greatly appreacieted.
Thank you BlackFeather

hey try to change the port forwarding for the computer you are using. Go into the routers setup program (usually somewhat like this 192.168.5.23 for linksys etc in web browser), and change the forwarding for the computer you play on, (i.e. 192.168.1.100 is the one you play bf42 on, and 192.168.1.101 is the other computer connected to the router) change the 192.168.1.100 forwarding option from ports 0 to 0 to this: 0 to 65535 click on yes for udp and tcp/ip forwarding. i had this same problem, this should fix it. look i am a bad when it ocmes to explaning things, so if you dont understand what im saying, email me at [email]SPKYKCKASS@aol.com[/email]
Or you could try setting up the games coomputer to be in the DMZ (DeMilitarised Zone) which will open it up to the internet. However both these solutions open up the PC to attack from the internet by script kiddies and etc. Once they have broken into your game pc they will then have access to your entire network. What you actually need are the port number that bf1942 uses and just open those up, much safer than having everything open.
Here are the port details
Open udp port 14567 if you just want a server that is not visible to the entire internet (users will have to enter IP addresses to connect) and set up port forwarding for this port to the game server.
Open TCP port 4711 if you want to use the RemoteConsole admin tool.
Do the following if you want your game listed on gamespy. There is more help for this on gamespys site.
allow udp range 14567 14570 allow udp 22000 allow udp range 23000 23009 # Gamespy Master Server UDP Heartbeat allow udp port 27900 # Gamespy Master Server List Request allow tcp port 28900
ASE uses the following ports
Ports 27243-27245 inclusive, both UDP and TCP
Hope this helps

You know, I left all that thought of attacks and hacks and crap in my past. I dont have anything on my computer of any value (other than CD keys) but to game, you cant be using a firewall. Routers have them built in, you can do what the two other replies listed or just get rid of the router and plug straight into the web. I'm on a network with five computers plugged into a hub which is plugged directly to the cable modem. All five of us have different IP's, which makes that possible. No firewalls, cable is also dynamic ip and not static. One, it can change anytime which is not like the dsl where if a hacker finds you once its easier for him to find you again. Two, we're basically running on Roadrunner's servers so they monitor the security and even viruses. I used to use a router for myself in order to make a certain Linksys NIC work and I would just unplug the Cat5 from the WAN port and put it in the Uplink port which bypassed the firewall.
That's probably not a bad option, however BlackFeather has a D-link 704 P which is an router/hub so to do what you suggest would mean buying a seperate hub. Many ADSL connections these days are running PPPOE, which is a dynamic IP address usually, but many ppl run their PC's 24/7 so quite often they sit for weeks with the same IP address. Also having a seperate IP address for each puter is useful, but is usually extra on top of your basic connection.
I have used routers succesfully for gaming, and in fact D-link have a section of their website dedicated to online gaming, so they must work, just a matter of toying with them until they do.
One of the first things you want to do when using a router for gaming is to disable DHCP and assign all the PC IP addresses manually, this will greatly improve your chances of getting things working properly.
Oh yes, I still use a router and firewall but it is now running on a dedicated PC running Suse Linux 8, I never have any problems with this, but it's a bit more complicated than a dedicted hardware router.

What is ASE?
"ASE uses the following ports Ports 27243-27245 inclusive, both UDP and TCP"
I've got a LAN server up and running with others able to connect as long as they type in my WAN side IP address buy opening the LAN ports below but have not been able to get a INTERNET server to show up (looking at the net from another LAN side computer)
LAN server ports: 14567 TCP (game port) 4711 TCP (console port) 22000 UDP (GameSpy status port)
INTERNET Server 14567 TCP (game port) 4711 TCP (console port) 23000 UDP (GameSpy status port) 27900 UDP (Gamespy heartbeat port) 28900 UDP (GameSpy master server port)
The nice thing about doing a LAN server is you can use the same copy of BF1942 on 2 computers while if you run an INTERNET server you can only use 1 copy per machine! :)
ASE is All-Seeing-Eye, the gamers choice of server browser, far better than Gamespy.
Do you mean using a computer on the same LAN, cause I don't think that will work. I'm not sure why but others have reported the same problem, having servers visble on the internet but not being able to see them from the same LAN. Does the game show up as a local game in the ingame browser, cause I think that may be where the problem comes from. If it uses the same subnet mask and IP range it probably counts it as a local game.
:cya: :cya: :cya:
If I set the 1.2 server only dedicated computer as an INTERNET game then it does NOT show up as a LOCAL game. If I set it to a LAN game then it DOES show up as a local game. I can connect to it on the LAN side EITHER way.....I just have to specifiy the LAN IP if its set to INTERNET.
I just can not see it on the net if I set it to an INTERNET game. I have had others connect to my server via IP when running it as a LAN server. I guess I'll have to set it up as an INTERNET server and see if a buddy can "find" it....as I can NOT from the LAN side....
But its COOL to get 4 or 5 people on the LAN then have others join via the IP address :)
Well I'm glad it sort of seem's to be workng for you. Are you using the in game browser to look for the games? If you are I would suggest trying ASE or Gamespy and see if that makes a difference.
