Default Help Hosting a server please? ^^

First of all... I'm a newbie here.. I just joined SRB2 MB..
I thought I can get alot of help here hosting my own server ( since I'm not forwarded correctly )...

My OS is Windows XP
Hmm... Maybe... I think my router is Speedy . . .
I see my server's name on MS but no one else can see it ( I tested it by asking my pen pal to see my serv. )

Well... any ideas?
Or any suggestions on how to forwarding my server correctly so everyone can play at my server? ^^
I can play at someone else's server though...

Every help is accepted.. thanks..
( I asked this because as far as I see the forum there's no hosting guide on XP ... :P )

Google how to forward your ports. SRB2's port is 5029.

Nice job running into a thread and discouraging people from solving their problem just because you weren't able to. >_>

That being said, ignore what calebmana said and forward your ports, it's required.

It took me a while to figure out how to do it. If you're using a router, it may be necessary to specify that port in the router, too. PortForward.com explains how this works for just about every type and model of router imaginable...but the site can be frustratingly confusing to navigate.

Go to where your router is. Pick it up, and examine it. Find the brand name and the model number. Then check again. It probably should be there.

Your router is somewhere in your house. It's a piece of equipment that facilitates internet connection. Ask your parents where it is. When you find out, go to where it is, then look for the brand name and model number. Be careful when handling it, and don't unplug anything, or you could wreck the connectivity of everyone in your house. Once you've got the brand and model, look for it on a list of routers on PortForward.com. The site also has specific instructions on how to set up the ports for SRB2.

The problem about portforward.com, while helpful, has an advertisement to PFconfig even though you don't need it. Some users think that this is what they need to forward their ports, and don't realize that it isn't part of the instructions. If you skip the advertisement though, you should be able to configure your router using the steps they give you.

Configuring any router follows similar steps.

1. The first step is to type your default gateway into your address bar. It is normally 192.168.1.1. If you see a screen asking for your username and password, then you typed the right thing and go to step 3. If not, go to step 2.

2. Here is how to find out your default gateway if it isn't 192.168.1.1. Click on Start, then click on run, then type in cmd. This will get you to the command prompt. Once you are in command prompt, type in ipconfig. It should look like the image below.


The thing in red is the number you are looking for. Type that into the browser.

3. You will have to figure out what your default password and username is. On Linksys routers it's "admin" for both user and password. On Netgear Routers it's "admin" for username and "password" for password. If it is neither of these are your router, then you can either find that out in your router manual or find it out on the port forward site (just ignore the PFconfig stuff and skip the advertisement.)

4.Look for a tab with a name like, "Port Forwarding"; or "Applications and Gaming"

5. If your router asks you whether to open ports for TCP or UDP select UDP. Some routers offer a from port ___ to port ___, you would put 5029 on both.

6. The IP you want it forwarded to can be found using ipconfig. Click on Start, then click on run, then type in cmd. This will get you to the command prompt. Once you are in command prompt, type in ipconfig. It should look like the image below.


Look for the IP address and type that into the IP address that you want the ports to be forwarded.

If you can't figure out the port forwarding process then their is one easy thing you can do, just hook your Internet cable ( if you have one and can find it, it is what hose into your router) directly into your computer/laptop when ever you want to host. That's what I do because I can't get any "username and password," to work for me.

Congratulations! Have fun hosting. IMO, hosting is much more fun and liberating than joining.
