If you did not change the ports in Crashday's Network Settings use this instruction to host a Crashday server.

Firt, access your router (my D-Link DI-624+ has
If you don't know how to set up your router please take a look at .

Under NAT you should find Virtual Server or something similar.
Add these rules to be able to host:

192.168.0.X ports 9000 & 8500 for UDP and TCP
where 192.168.0.X is the IP of your PC(!), 9000 is the server and 8500 the client port

I've chosen to use both TCP & UDP to avoid conflicts.
Additionally, because of some weird circumstances, it did not work for me when I only forwarded TCP.

Private IP Private Port Type Public Port

  1. 192.168.0.X 9000 TCP 9000
  2. 192.168.0.X 9000 UDP 9000
  3. 192.168.0.X 8500 TCP 8500
  4. 192.168.0.X 8500 UDP 8500

Now your router is configured and you're ready to host some action-intense fastpacing Crashday sessions.


Some additional tips:

  • if your router has an option called Gaming Mode or Performance Mode or ... turn it on
  • if you have a software firewall running (3rd party or since SP2 for Win XP the Windows firewall), make sure it allows traffic on port 8500 & 9000
  • don't run any other application that (more or less) transfers data over internet
