I have 4 computers on seperate LAN's
The setup is as follows

PC 1 >>> Router >>> PC 2
                   ^
                WAN
                    ^
PC 3 >>> Router >>> PC 4

So PC 1 and 2 are in one building, 3 and 4 in another.

Neither routers support VPN's.  I want to be able to host a game server on PC 1 so that PC 2,3,4 can access it.  Hosting options are Internet, Lan thats it.
The game uses port 28960, I am on a class A network with PC 1 and 2 but a Class C with 3 and 4, the addresses are: PC 1 10.0.0.14, PC 2 10.0.0.4, Router 10.0.0.2, PC 3 192.168.1.2, PC 4 192.168.1.3, Router 192.168.1.1

If anyone could answer and solve, Id be most grateful - just look at the points

The chance this is possible is terribly small.

You would use the LAN options. PC 1 would have to start server on IP 10.0.0.14. PC 2 would join a game on 10.0.0.14.

Now the hard part: There must be a route set up on the Router for PC 3 and 4 that routes all packages to the 10.0.0.x  Network to the Router for PC 1 and 2 (or at least all packages on port 28960).
They could then connect to the server on 10.0.0.14.
Depends on the characteristics of your WAN and your routers if this is possible. Please post a bit more info (like router manufacturer and model) so I can tell whether you how to reconfigure them.

The router is a Mentor ADSL 4-Port Broadband Modem, it does not support any sort of VPN connection but does support DMZ if that helps.
It is only port 28960 which I need to use, the router supports Port Forwarding.

i hope this helps

You should try this:

Set DMZ for PC1 (On router1). Note the external IP that is given to PC1 when setting up the server.
Run server on PC1.

Let PC2 join game on 10.0.0.14.
Enable port forwarding on router2 for port 28960.
Try to join with PC3 and 4 the server on the external IP.

One problem though - don't know if CoD will work for both PC3 and PC4.

I have bought a new game called Hidden & Dangerous 2: SS

Looking at the settings of this game andcomparing to CoD it is not possible to Connect the way I wish.

What I need is to be able to set the game up on LAN and allow it to be discoverable on the internet which is possible on H&D2:SS but not CoD:UO

Cheers anyway people :-)

Wait a sec. You posted a question about CoD:UO , and you have not even tried what I have suggested? Thanks a lot. What I have described makes the game discoverable from the Internet. (The DMZ for the PC funcioning as game server). If your question was answered, accept an answer. If not, post why it wasn't answered and ask in CS for a refund. I believe I answered your question but you have not even considered it a solution. Please reread the site rules, you cannot just say "Cheers away people" and abandon a question.

i tried the DMZ and the PC3 and 4 could see my game but couldn't connect to it, PC2 couldnt see ti at all.

I reconfigured my netowrk a bit, a had pc1 and 2 going directly to a HUB which then led to a broadband ethernet router.  I enabled port forwarding on this new router to go to PC1 on which i enabled an Internet Dedicated Server.  PC 3 and 4 could access the game and connect easily, but there was a problem accessing from PC2, keeping very similar settings I tried to locate the game on PC2 and could not find it, I used VPN to my workplace and from there tunneled back to my router which then forward me on to my game, this reduced performance but only slightly.

Thanks for all your help guys
