      Setting up a Dedicated Server

      I am trying to set up a Server on my Sky Router, I've followed the tutorial here Windows Dedicated Server Setup - GMod Wiki I've done it all before on when i had BT Internet when living at my dads, but tried to do it on the Sky Router, I can connect locally but in the Server Browser on Steam it just does not want to show

      Thanks in advance

      Would be against the T&C's like stated.
      But a lot of things are.

      Might seem silly, but if you can connect local but not online you sure your router and server (if using firewall) is all setup correctly?

      Had this issue before with a server i setup.

      It's fine now, I decided to do a Local Minecraft Server instead, so my friends can come and play minecraft together when they come round

      Do you think so? Sky do this to protect people like you who do not want to run a free server. Why should the service to others be reduced by someone running a free server on a domestic connection. There are quite few free hosting services available as well as many paid for services. Anyone who wants to run a server should use one of these. Web hosting, email hosting, domain names and dedicated servers - Fasthosts

      Re: Setting up a Dedicated Server

      What about running a server inside your Lan?

      Surely that would be allowed if it's set up so no one outside can access it?

      No problem with that, it is not using Sky's bandwidth.

      Re: Setting up a Dedicated Server

      Just a quick question on this topic:

      Is it againsed the Terms and Conditions to do a private server between you and your friends?
      For instance if I go into a game and host a private server which only my friends can connect to, is that againsed the T&Cs?

      I'm not with Sky at the moment (As I'm not on an LLU'ed exchange) but it would be interesting finding this out.
