What Do I Need To Do To Host?

Recommended Posts

Do I start the Dynamic DNS thing and then launch the game? Should I use any utilites to set icon range and other stuff? Sorry for being a Muppet :rolleyes:

you need to make sure you have set your router up for port forwading on 21000. Icons can be set through the rcu file.

I wouldn't worry about the custom icon settings until you get your hosting working.

Did Roger set you up with a crash.dangerdogz.com DNS host name? If not, have him do that, and then yes, run that DNS thing before you host.

As FB said, if you have a router you need to setup port forwarding for IL2 to port 21000 for your local computers local network ip. You can read how to do that at the portfowarding website. Look up your router and the IL2 FB game.

Then, test hosting. If you have a software firewall, make sure it lets the game through.. Disable it to test if you need to.
