    Hi there,

    Some days in the week I host a Battlefield 1942 game online wich allways ran fine via my DSL connection.
    The urge for a dedicated server came up because of the easy managing etc so I got a second pc and started building my network with one thing in mind :
    I don't want to run 2 pc's for just reading my daily mail.

    So this is my set-up :

    ____________Zyxel Prestige 650R modem/router____________
    ___________PC1 (game pc/inet pc/daily usage)_____________
    _____________PC2 (Battlefield de. server)_________________

    Both pc's run on Windows XP Pro, with the standard firewall enabled on PC1 and internet is shared within this VPN via ICS.

    All ports are forwarded within ICS necessary for Battlefield.
    They are forwarded to the internal IP of PC2.
    These are the ports :

    UDP Port 14567
    UDP 22000
    UDP range 23000-23009
    UDP Port 14690

    # GameSpy Master Server UDP Heartbeat:
    UDP Port 27900
    # GameSpy Master Server List Request:
    TCP Port 28900

    When starting a dedicated server on PC2 available for internet I can join this game via PC1 by inserting the internal VPN IP.
    A friend of mine joined this server from the outside by inserting my external (internet) IP address.
    So this is exactly what SHOULD happen, right?

    Now comes the reason for posting this message..
    My server won't show up in the serverbrowser from the game itself.
    Gamespy gives the same... nothing.. (n)

    Does anyone has a new direction for me ?
    Should a router help?

    Personally I don't think so.. because I think this problem of mine is a problem between BF1942 and NAT.. and a hardware router gives the same ... or am i wrong ?
