ok...I realy need some help. I am self hosting a dedicated server for halo pc. i found that i need to do some portforwarding so that other people can play on my server....i have tried to portforward unsuccesfully...oh about 2 mins ago. and all it did was enable my other pc to play on the server :whistling: . this is what i put in, on my linksys wrt54g.


halo1 80 to 80 both 192.168.1.140 *checked*
halo2 2302 to 2302 both 192.168.1. 140 *checked*
halo3 2303 to 2303 both 192.168.1.140 *checked*

i had one of my friends try the server and he couldnt join. it is on the master list but it says "retrying server 1,2,3,4* and then *unable to join game*

Are you running any firewalls on the server?

The ports are correct, and as long as the IP is correct, it should work. You can try to set the server in a DMZ for testing purposes.

Unless your ISP is blocking ports it should work.

Have you tried the DMZ yet?

Sorry, I am not familiar with Linksys. There should be some directions in a manual or on their site.

what ip??



Ok calm down.


Some routers just dont want to work when you try to host a server from home.

Try putting the dmz host ip the same as your LAN ip.. A Lan ip is what the router gives you.


Go into my network places then view network connections. Click on local area connection then goto the support tab. It will list your IP address. Use that ip address as the dmz setting.

Linksys is sometimes weird and is alittle different and tricky but try that.

Usually Wireless routers are not fond of allowing you to run any kind of gaming server so more than likely its your wireless router.


Remember dmz is last resort if you cannot get the server to run with port forwarding. Especially since your on wireless make sure you put it back to normal if you cant get it to work with Dmz.
