  1. try setting your dmz to your computer IP address and turning your windows firewall off if its on. You probably wont need to do any port forwarding then unless your router is really old. If that works try it with your windows firewall on then and test again. another note, the way the server software works if you connect to your own server, your headset will not work.
  2. The SWBF instruction book is refering to hosting your games with your Ps2. If you are running a PC dedicated server then you should foward those ports only to your PC. Where ever the server is running, thats where the ports should be fowarded. The Mic issue is due to your Ps2 is connecting to the server on a LAN connection instead of over the internet. That is why your PING is so low in your own server, it routes the shortest, fastest route for the connection. I assume you could set up a static routing table on your router to force your Ps2 to connect to your server over the internet, but I haven't been able to figure quite how to do this yet. Hope the info helps, and see you on the battlefield.
  3. Try turning on DMZ on your router to see if is a router issue. Your game should show up on gamespy with a regular ping. With DMZ on (All ports opened) windows firewall will ask you if you would like to continue blocking Battlefront.exe. Select "No" and nothing else should be required to be done. You may have to assign a static IP to your computer in order to run in DMZ mode, your router manual should help you do that. Supposedly these are the only ports you need fowarded to accually run the game: TCP ONLY 3658, 3659 & 6500 I also heard to open 27900 so Gamespy servers can see the game. But when DMZ is on you don't need to do this. As far as the mic problem. We have the same trouble with no mic in the room we are hosting. From hours of troubleshooting I am convinced that it has something to do with having the same Public (WAN) IP address on the ps2 and computer running the server, because in your own room, it recognizes your IP as your ps2's local IP address, not your WAN address. I can only think of 2 possible solutions: 1) somehow setup the ps2 to run through a proxy wich would give it a different IP, but it would give you a higher ping. I wouldn't run the computer through one because that would pobably slow it down quite a bit. If anyone knows how to do this !please! post instructions. 2) connect 2 modems, 1 for computer and 1 for ps2. This would also pull 2 different IP's. I have DSL so I don't know if this would work for cable, but theroretically it would work for my connection. My ISP says I cannot do this without paying for 2 phone and DSL lines, but they also told me my upstream bandwidth is only 384k when it is really 574k. I do not want to go buy a new modem to try this longshot scheme, so if anyone has an extra modem laying around, could they try it and please post results? thanks in advance
