Ragnor: When you say you checked the ip, what do you mean how did you check the ip address, in the game?

Well, when I host a dedicated server, the game closes, and then this console opens up. That's the dedicated server thing. So I go into the game, and I tried to look for my game on the Internet tab. But I couldn't find it. Then I went to Local/Lan, and there was my server. I even right clicked, and clicked server info, and then it showed the LAN IP.
same thing goes with killing floor. And my friends couldn't find my server also.  


 I get this problem with certain games some games I can host a server no problem  does it automatically where others it will only show up in Lan. Like for instance 'Rune Halls of Valhalla' I did everything from the tutorial a player put up opened ports, dedicated server etc., even disabled the firewall one time out of desperation but the match still only shows up in Lan.  I'll watch this thread  hopefully there's a solution for your problem.


Edit
Ah if your on a Lan this could be our problem I just did a google and came across this

Quote:
only the computer with the direct connection to the internet could be used to host a dedi server that would show up to ousiders if hosted on another computer that shared the connection the game wouldn't show up to anyone so i swapped them so my spare computer was connected and my gaming computer was sharing the connection..i could then host for my friends online and join myself via lan

Yeah but how do I know which computer is the direct connection? They just both connected to the network hub




Hmmm. I will try to find out. I really want to host. I think you gotta go into your router. 192.168.1.254
EDIT: Nah, I DO NOT KNOW WHAT TO DO D:

I was not able to get DMZ to work on a thompson router, and when I asked someone about it, it turns out you can only have it DMZ to a machine that it assigned the IP address to.

If you have static assignments it doesnt put the computer into the list of computers you can select. Just another thing wrong with the piece of crap interface on them.

I just found out something!
I Forgot to say:
I am basically using 2 routers. One of them is the main one, which is the thomson one, 192.168.1.254. That one is connected to a wall. There is a wire travelling it from it, to another router, which is near my PC, and it's the DLINK router, 192.168.0.1. That DLINK router, has wires travelling it from it, to my PC, and my brothers PC. Our PC's are close to eachother.

So  when I go into CMD, and type IPCONFIG, the default gateway is the DLINK IP, 192.168.0.1.
I never even went on the 192.168.0.1 router settings on the browser.
So if this information will help,
please help me fix the host problems.
thanks again.

Assuming you have both routers doing nat, you will need to forward ports on both of them.

On the main one, foward the ports to the dlink routers external IP, and then on the dlink forward it to the PC you want's IP.

If you had a single router, chances are upnp would be on and the apps would sort it all out themselves.

I just also found out something else!
I took out the internet wire out from my PC, and then I connected to the thomson one, using wireless connection. And then it worked when hosting. But there are lag spikes with wireless, so I want to host using wired, so no one will lag. Using the information I provided, please help.

Thanks again.

Yeah sounds like you have double NAT, connecting the devices in WAN Bypass Mode should resolve the problem.

Here's a guide

Hmmm. What if I use a HUB?
So that I will be only connected to one router. So I replace the DLINK router with a hub. Will that work?

I got a new D-Link router, not a modem.
Still doesn't work. I can host lan games when I connect to my Thomson wireless router, and disconnect the wired conenction from the D-Link one, but not when I connect to the wired.
