Goto http://www.portforwa...tforwarding.htm for the ports for Call of duty or Call of duty United offensive... It has been talked about several times if you just took the time to look through the forum. Im not ignoring your posts its just that all of your questions have been answered several times already.
This is a huge topic and the same questions keep coming, Please look through the forum there is several different topics about everyones problems.
If you think you have opened the ports up right for Call of duty or Call of duty united offensive and it still shows on local after you set all of the server settings correctly also, you need to goto portforward.com and try and find your routers model and look it up. If its not on the portforward site then download Router Screenshot Grabber and run the program then follow the instructions so that the guys at portforward.com can try to write a review for your router to help you out. Sometimes they cannot get info so you will have to go back to reading through the forum again.
**FOR PEOPLE WANTING TO HOST AN INTERNET SERVER AT HOME** **NOT FOR LAN**If you opened a Server with the option Dedicated to Internet and you set up the port forwarding within the router and the server still does NOT show up on internet list it means you set up the ports incorrectly somehow or either you may have a firewall of some type blocking it such as a software firewall. There is really know way for me to explain it any better than I already have many times in this forum. I cant fix your problem because Im not their at your house looking at the problem to troubleshoot it.
**When a server is set up correctly on the same pc as you will be playing on, your servers hostname will show up on both internet and lan lists after you refresh the lists...**
Make shure You set Dedicated To Internet! Dont keep Dedicated to NO, Or LAN!!
If you are having problems you should see if a server will work this way first. Try to make an internet server by going to start new server in the cod or cod uo menu then fill out all of your settings correctly under the general tab. Set Dedicated to Internet, set a hostname, set a min and max ping if you want, set a maxrate if you want, Put it on Pure server, set maxplayers appropriately, put punkbuster off for now, do not set a password unless you want a private server that you give your friends the pass and only they can connect..
After that select a map and gametype then click START.
You will then goto back to the desktop and a console box will open which is normal!! Leave that box alone and minimize it!! Now, start back up call of duty and try to find your server on the internet list and lan both!!
Make shure you Refresh the Internet list! If your server shows up on the internet list it means your server is set up correctly and people will be able to join your server.
If you still dont see your server on the internet list you have a problem with your ports for the game or you set it up incorrectly or in the wrong place.. A firewall can also cause your server not to show up on the internet list...
***IF you have tryed everything and you still have no luck the last option would be to open DMZ Host in your router.***
The DMZ Host allows your lan ip provided by your router to be shown on the internet so people can see your ip. It basically turns off the firewall so people can see your lan ip.
Thats all I can help you with I have already explained this same Information all above many times.
