I am running Windows 2000 advanced server on my server. I have a multiplayer game that requires a certain
number of ports to be open for the multiplayer to work. The game (Mechwarrior 4) comes with a program
on CD 1 that is suppost to open them. But of cource I have 2000 and the program was ment for 98. So
if anyone can help me that would be great.

Ok. I guess you are using a client machine behind the server which has ICS or NAT enabled. In the properties of ICS or NAT, you can add mappings to map incoming traffic to an internal machine. For this to work properly, I strongly suggest using the DHCP server for client IP distribution and to make reservations for the IP's you're using in the mapping.
