    I used to host my own server with no problems but now that is a different story. I have portforwarded all the right ports, also I have set up the server correctly but when I click load track the data rate is always 0% up and 0% down. This has only started happening recently. I am on the steam version and I am running the latest build.

    Also how do I enable the getmod feature so that when anyone joins the mods are automatically installed for them? Thanks!

    If the server has no clients. Data rate is 0%. That's normal.

    Getmod is enabled with mods that have a get mod link. ISI content and quality 3rd party mods already have a getmod link. URD is payware so it doesn't have a get mod link.

    For mods without a get mod link: http://isiforums.net/f/showthread.php/19702-GetMod-Manager

    My server never appears on the server list either so is there a fix for that?

    I just launched the server again yesterday and everything works perfect now, I have changed nothing at all so that is quite strange...

    Did you reboot your PC?
    If you don't have a static IP adress.
    You'll need to adjust the IP in the port forwarding again.

    If you have a dynamic IP: your IP might change. BTW: I'm talking about your local network IP.
