Could someone try help me out? I've opened all the needed ports in the router and the firewall to host a RACE07 server yet the ping is still 5000. Checked all the ports with PFPortChecker and they are all open. I read that for some reason some have trouble connecting on a dedicated server hosted from the same PC that they are trying to join. Could this be the issue? EDIT: I can actually join the server by finding in through the LAN browser. ( I can see it in the multi lobby but can't join ) Thanks. edit: the ports I've opened are: 34000-34297 TCP\UDP 34347 TCP\UDP 34349 TCP\UDP 48942-48957 TCP\UDP 26900-26907 UDP 48958-48973 UDP Maybe I missed some necessary port?
