    Setting up my dedicated server and can see it online but no one can get onto it. Are there special things that need to be done. Sorry I haven't been able to find anything.

    Thanks.

    rF2 runs off different ports, open up the multiplayer ini to see what ports are needed

    Do other dedicated servers work? And did you allow the program in your firewall as well?

    Yes, I can join other servers. And yes, I have Win7 and have checked the firewall and allowed it to the "public" settings.

    Thanks.

    Sorry, made a mistake in writing the sentence...

    What I ment was if you can HOST other servers :)

    Can you join your own server over Local connection? (tick box left below in multiplayer server list screen).

    OK, i think the problem is solved. Enabled the DMZ someone was able to join. I hope that does the trick. Thanks for your help.

    Your welcome. I think you have a double firewall. 1 in the Win7 network (which you checked already), and 1 in the router. I think you need to open the ports up there as well, so you can get the router out of DMZ mode.
