i want to play with my friend over the internet so noone else can join.
How do i do that?
Read the sticky in the server help forum on how to use the dedicated server. Basically you download the dedicated server software, configure it, open the ports in your router.
Actually, it would be better, to not run the server as dedicated... Just start like your playing offline. Then give your friend your IP address. That's how we set it up at school before we commissioned one computer as the dedicated server.
Er, yeah. That would be more simple. You still need to forward the ports as I mentioned in my first reply, and as the sticky mentions.
If you need more specific help PQ, just ask...
thanks for the info. So all I have to do is authorize the Port on which I want to play? Default would be 23073, is that right? Does my friend have to do that too? And how do i do that?
And were is the sticky?
I still dont have it going. Could somebody please post a step-by-step Instruction how to do this?
I'm off to class right now. Remind me and I'll post it when I get back home tonight.
Do you want it for Linux or Windows?
