I love HALO! but lately am getting realy frustrated with it. i am so desperate as I cant find any solution to my problem. When i host halo (not a dedicated server) some how my server doesnt appear on the internet list which is strange. How do i know? I asked my friends to join my server they said they couldnt find me as they are the 1st 1's to join. I even gave them my IP address still didnt work (unable to join). This is not the 1st time am hosting however this is the 1st time am having such problems. I tried everything i possibly could. I tried changing my ports in Halo (network settings) still nothing happened (2302, 2303, 2307, 5667 etc). I have a router that is connected by cable (DSL). I believe my router doesnt have a built in firewall protection because i usually host. I am using Windos XP. My windows firewall is truned off as well as dont allow exceptions (in firewall (general)). Halo (port) is added in Exceptions (programs & services (firewall)). I think am having problems with firewall Confused. Dont know if its set up the way it should be in order to host halo. I would appreciate if some1 helps me and THANK U for viewing my topic.

Hello oops!

Try doing this:


Right click your halo shorcut on your desktop

Click Properties in the target box add the following:

_console (the space beforehand is important)

Now start halo, click multiplayer then start internet game.

Once you have chosen you settings, start the game, you use the key found under the Esc key to access the console.

If you have anymore questions post them here oops.

Hope this works for you!
