      Unhappy Problem hosting with the Sagem F@ST 2504

      Ok I dont know where else to turn for this, i've searched the net, phoned a freind (SKY) and gone 50/50 and still cant find a solution!

      Problem I have, is im trying to host games sever myself (CoD4, UT and some others), so that I and some freinds can have a good laugh over the net. Now I have tried everything from changing the server settings, shut down all firewalls, to port forwarding, and i've even followed this Port Forwarding for the Sagem Fast2504 step for step.

      Now I can see my hosted game on the lan list but when friends try to search the internet server list for it, it just doesnt show up, they cant even manually input the ip address to direct connect to me!

      Is there anyone out there that can please help, get any of my games to host over the net!?

      Thanks in advanced

      Tony

      Don't play COD much but - Look in Bold in the Quote.

      If your hosting the Game for LAN then it won't show up for them unless they are connected to your LAN...

      If they are trying to connect to your server over the internet from their home then Try and host the server for internet & not LAN..

      Hope this helps.

      Thanks for the reply, but im already starting the server as a internet game and also tried starting a dedicated server with all the games too.
      Internet games as far as I know always show up in the lan as well if your on a home network, though im not 100% sure that it should still be showing on there.

      Its been a good few years since I last hosted a game, and remember when it was easy, when everything was USB modems, Plug, Play and Host. lol


      Thanks for your input

      Theres nothing really out there other then PortForward.com - Free Help Setting up Your Router or Firewall.
      However after playing about with setting the ports up, it now seems to be working fine for all games with people now seeing it in the list of servers.Not tried it with a freind yet though so will have to see what happens there.

      The strange thing was, I hadnt done anything different to what I had already done before, and its just all started working.
