Port Forwarding

  1. Im having a problem forwarding ports. Originally, im forwarding for cod4 but in order to test, im using halo ce because it uses 3 ports. 2302 for server, 2305 for client, and port 80 to download updates. If im running a dedicated server, people can join, but i cant. I dont even see the server which i did when i wasnt on a router. I even set it up to where the dedicated server runs on different ports than the game, so i also have ports 2304-2308 forwarded. When i start a server in game, no one else can join. Pleease help. =)

    What router do you use? What firewall are you using? Have you tried PortForward? They have pretty good guides there based on router and/or game/application.

    What about a firewall? Did you open the same ports on the firewall that you opened in the router and game?

    Yes, i allowed all access to all applications and all of their ports.
