Here's the deal. i downloaded and installed the admin mod and stuff like that in hopes of setting up a dedicated server. then i find out you have to do something like port forwarding or something like that to get people to be able to see it. i would be very greatful if someone could help me. i have a linksys router and am running windows xp home edition.




p.s. i want people to be able to update the server list and see it. i don't want to have to give out my ip in the chat rooms or something so they can join.

forward the following ports (IN, UDP):
6003
7002
27010
27015
27025

MAKE SURE DHCP IS DISABLED!!

configure your router by going to the port forwarding setup and enter the above port numbers and enter the IP address of the server on the same line.

do this with all of the ports.


im not sure all of the ports about are needed but im sure you need 27005 and 27015...


good luck

From Microsoft knowledge base:

"To run a game server, you might need to forward UDP ports 6003, 7002, 27010, 27015, and 27025."

Now I'm pretty sure what falderus said is wrong.  27005 is the client port if I'm not mistaken, and if you forward that you can't play CS anymore.

Another thing to consider is some settings on your router.  Some being set wrong may not allow you to run a server.  I have a linksys router and currently have my filter settings at:

SPI:  Disabled
Block WAN Request:  Disabled
Multicast Pass Through: Enabled
IPSec Pass Through:  Enabled
PPTP Pass Through:  Enabled
Remote Management:  Disabled
Remote Upgrade:  Disabled
MTU:  Disable


If you don't know how to access your router, try typing in the IP, which is probably 192.168.1.1

Hey, if you have a linksys router just connect to it and set your servers ip as the DMZ host, this will allow it to have full outside access to the internet for all your Dedicated Server needs (not just counterstrike)

This is what worked for me behind any router I've used as par:


disable dhcp and just specify an internal ip address (for the server computer your using)

forward the following ports (IN, UDP):
6003
7002
27005
27010
27015
27025



"Now I'm pretty sure what falderus said is wrong.  27005 is the client port if I'm not mistaken, and if you forward that you can't play CS anymore."  Falderus WAS RIGHT and port forwarding 27005 does not screw up cs........


Shadowhawk:   the whole point of a router is for firewall and anti-hacking purposes, why would you invest in a router if your just goin' to put a server on dmz?  that would leave your server open to anything... hance why you wouldn't do that.  I'd suggest (if your goin' to use dmz at all) to use it with your computer that you game wiht (only if you don't want to have to go through the whole process of port forwarding for every game you play online...

It should not matter what kind of router you have.  A router is a router.  preuomo, you will only ever be able to open one port at a time.  that's how it's done.  open each different port.  first 6003 (udp) then 7002 and so on. I'm not running a d-link and I have a dedicated server running behind it... you don't need to waste money 'cause another router you get will have basically the same options. So falerus would be wrong, you should just read the instructions on your router and learn how ot use it 'cause a d-link router will be the same thing. :-)  help any?! hope so...

Well what happens is that I can only select 1 port to be opened at one time. Its a radio form on my router settings. Like I can LIST 192.168.0.4:6003, 192.168.0.4:7002, 192.168.0.4:27005, 192.168.0.4:27010, 192.168.0.4:27015, and 192.168.0.4:27025 but I can only SELECT 1 at a time. Becuase when I only have 27015 listed, i search for my server and I don't get any results, nor can anyone connect to it. Also, when I tried a 1.6 dedicated server, it said that it couldn't allocate 27015, so i changed the port to 27016, and it seemed to make the server. Im not surer if anyone could connect to it, but the server was up. My AIM Screen name is preUomo and my e-mail is preUomo@yahoo.com, e-mail me if you have any info. And thank you, doublehelix.

doublehelix what i meant was that if he was to buy a new router he should get d-link router. i didnt say go buy a router neither did i say that his current router can only open one port. i was simply saying that d-link is one of the best router makers
