Also once you know it how can other people log into the server once you get it to them, directly without look throught the names on the normal list

Thank you for your time

To find your own IP address:

Use this site first - http://whatismyip.com/

If the website didn't work:

-Click START
-Under "All Programs", go to "Accessories", then click "Command Prompt"
-In the new window, type "ipconfig" (without quotations) and press ENTER.

Several IP addresses will be shown. Yours will be under "PPP adapter host_name."

also read the "readme" from the cd. it has a great guide on how to setup a network:

This was taken right from the readme. It's recommended you read this before asking questions


1. Recommended maximum client settings when hosting over DSL

If hosting a Multiplayer game over a DSL connection, the following amount of clients are
recommended: (users hosting on listen servers should count themselves when totaling)
128k upload: 4 players
384k upload: 8 players
768k upload: 10 players

Exceeding these numbers when hosting over DSL may result in laggy conditions.

2. Dedicated server running on Windows® 2003

Creating a Call Of Duty® 2 dedicated server requires the presence of a profile.
To manually create one, do the following:

Add "+set dedicated [1 = LAN, 2 = Internet]" to the shortcut for Multiplayer

Add the following folders:
[Call of Duty 2]\main\players
[Call of Duty 2]\main\players\[profile name] (Ex. [Call of Duty 2]\main\players\MyProfile)

Create a file named "active.txt" in "[Call of Duty 2]\main\players" with the profile
name in the first line.

Create a blank file named "config_mp.cfg" in [Call of Duty 2]\main\players\[profile name]

If done correctly, the user will get a message that the configuration has changed since the last
time Call of Duty 2 was last run. The user will be presented two options, YES and NO. Select YES to
have the correct config file automatically created for you. Once that has completed, you will be at
the dedicated server console.


1. Virtual Memory Warnings in Windows® 2000/XP

Users playing on machines using the Windows® 2000/XP operating systems that possess less
than 600 megabytes (MB) of virtual memory may receive low virtual memory warnings.
To avoid these warnings, please make sure you set your virtual memory settings to at least
600 megabytes (MB).

To adjust your virtual memory settings, please do the following:

For Windows® XP systems:
1) Right click the My Computer icon.
2) Select Properties.
3) Select the Performance tab.
4) Select Virtual Memory.

For Windows® 2000 systems:
1) Right click the My Computer icon.
2) Select Properties.
3) Select Advanced.
4) Select Performance Options.

2. Shift Key in Windows® 2000/XP Interrupts Game:

If you press the Shift key 5 times consecutively in Windows® 2000 or Windows® XP the
following message should appear:

"Pressing the SHIFT key 5 times turns on StickyKeys. StickyKeys lets you use the SHIFT,
CTL, ALT, or Windows Logo keys by pressing one key at a time.

To Keep StickyKeys on, click OK.
To cancel StickyKeys, click Cancel.
To deactivate the key combination for StickyKeys, click Settings."

To avoid this happening in the future, click the settings button on the window referenced
above. When the accessibility options screen appears, click the "Settings" button in the
"Sticky Keys" portion of the window. On the next window (should be labeled "Settings For
Sticky Keys"), uncheck the box that says "Use shortcut", then click on "ok". Then, click
on apply and close the window. The problem should not occur once the shortcut has been disabled.

3. Windows® Key Interrupts Game in 2000/XP

If the Windows® key is pressed during game play, the Start Menu will interrupt the game.
Should this happen, simply press the Escape (Esc) key to close the menu and return to the game.
Unfortunately, there is no way to prevent this from happening again except by being careful
not to hit those keys while playing.

4. CTRL-ALT-DEL Freezes System On Windows® 2000

If the CTRL-ALT-DEL keys are pressed during game play, the screen will become corrupt and
sometimes the system may become unstable. Should this happen, simply press the Escape (Esc)
key to return to the game or reboot the computer and refrain from trying to access the task
manager while playing the game.

5. Game Icons Are Missing From Start Menu And/Or Desktop In Windows® 2000/XP

When installing Call of Duty 2 while logged into Windows® as a specific user, the game
icons will only show up when logging in as that user. For example, if you log into
Windows® as "Joeuser", install the game, then log out and log back in as "Janeuser",
the game icons will not show up. If you wish to play the game, make sure you log into
Windows® as the same user you were logged in as when you installed the game.

6. Admin Rights Needed To Load and Play On Windows® 2000 or XP

If you are running Windows® 2000 or Windows® XP, you must have Administrator rights
to properly install and play the game.

7. Microsoft® Intellipoint drivers and Middle-Mouse Button functionality

Currently the latest version of Microsoft® Intellipoint drivers bind the middle-mouse button
to the ALT-TAB function. Using the middle-mouse button with this default setting may switch tasks
while playing Call Of Duty® 2.
