Help! can't host in games
i've got a problem, a want to host in NOLF (1) but my PC is in a LAN with 3 other pc's and they all go through a firewall to a cable modem, so when i host, i just see the server in a LAN game and not in Internet Game and the IP is 192.168.**.*** so how can i host in the internet with an other IP??

You will most likely have to set your IP as the DMZ host which will set your PC outside the firewall. You can do this through your routers/firewalls software.

I don't know what the acronym stands for but it basically allow you to set 1 IP address outside of the firewall unrestricted from any part of the firewall. It will probably be a box you check to enable and then you will have to type in your IP address that the router has assigned to you such as 192.168.1.3 What Operating system are you using?
****edit for spelling

mine is WinXP and the firewall is a netgear
(now in the moment it's a linux firewall, i can't change it but the netgear should work tomorrow)

to get your router assigned IP information...go to "start" then to "run" and type IPCONFIG
this will tell you some of your network info and your IP addy

BTW the netgear is the current firewall / router

FYI , DMZ : DeMilitarizedZone
Goto command prompt and type in ipconfig to get the IP of your PC then goto the DMZ settings and set your IP as the DMZ host.P@yce,

DMZ settings are on the router, so you get to them the same way you access any other router options.

This is most likely because u have somethin like Norton AV, i know that when i had it i couldn't host games as well.

NAV only monitors files; it doesn't monitor all data flow. Were you using Norton System Utilities, including the firewall, or just Norton Antivirus?
I've run BF1942 server lost of times, and NAV has never given me any problems.

a command prompt window opens
type ipconfig press enter
you get a list of info + ip address
type ip address in address bar than you should be in
at least using a SMC router
