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 192.168.0.1).
If you don't know how to set up your router please take a look at portworward.com .
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
- 192.168.0.X 9000 TCP 9000
- 192.168.0.X 9000 UDP 9000
- 192.168.0.X 8500 TCP 8500
- 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
