Well a Listen server doesnt let it appear to everyone who is online and if you select DEDICATED it shows BUT you have to pay monthly if you want to create your own server

The dedicated server in UT2K4 means that it runs as a server, you can't play on that same computer while a dedicated server is running. If you do a listen server you can play along and people can join in as long as your IP is broadcast out.

You have to make sure your firewall allows incoming connections on the following ports:

7777 -- people who connect to you or you connect to them
42292 -- to advertise in ut2004 lists
27900 -- for pagespy and other softwares to play online
7787 and 7788 -- is a backup to connect
