could someone maybe help me in this??!?!? ok.....here's the deal... I have a Dedicated server running 1.4 and yes before you ask I am behind a router (NAT) but I have all of the ports open that every where I look say need to be open , there are tons # GameSpy 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 I have all of these sent to that PC , and I have even tried to DMZ the PC from behind the router.....no luck :( I have been into the serversettings.con file and the internet is on 1 and not 0....I am getting very very frustrated with it ,...... I have tried it with the program that comes from EA , it didn't work and Right now I am using the new one from www.Blackbagops.com the version 2.0 beta 3d any help would be appreciated ,.....thanks Guys
Oh By the Way....... I can , or my friends that know my IP address can type it in and it will allow them to connect to the dedicated server over the internet , but it will not show up in any searches, even if you type in the name of the server....very very weird.....just thought that I would add that in there for good measure in case the first post was unclear.... Thanks Phenom :smack:
try to open ALL ports one time and C if it works...if it works try to open some diffrent ports. To find out the port by yourself you can use the "netstat"-command in the commandpromt to see what ips your connected to.
