Questions about Setting up an internet public server
« on: December 04, 2011, 12:35:55 pm »
    Okay,so, my questions are:

 1. Can I set up a server with a Wireless USB Modem ?
 2. What about the local IP
 3. How should I forward my ports ( considering it's a modem )
 4. What could be the problems of un-hosting my server, while I permitted acces to both, announce.exe and vcmp-svr.exe ?
Code: [Select]
[20:23] <habi> later only i heard that lu chatbox is customizable. On my first visit, it appeared ugly.
[20:23] <habi> May be that also be the reason why lu has no players

Here are the answers to your questions:

1: I think you can. I have a USB Modem and was able to host my server. Atleast until the modem doesn't let me host it anymore. But I will say, depends.

2: What local IP? If your meaning localhost:port/127.0.0.1:port, than it will only show to your self. It will never appear in an internet list for anyone. Just add it to your favourites list.

3: Famous question. Here is Storm's Tutorial. But if your meaning modem instead of router, I once found a side saying that Modem doesn't need any port forwarding.  :D

4: Sorry.. Don't understand.  :-\

HOPE IT HELPS..

Modems do not require port forwarding, routers do.
