Default Re: Dominions II: Technical/Hardware Issues

Does anyone here have any experience with getting a server setup behind a firewall?

Specifically I am trying to get it setup so that people can connect to my server, which is behind a Netgear Prosafe FVS318 firewall router.

So far I have tried setting up port forwarding, and setting the IP address of the machine acting as the server to DMZ in both cases when I try to connect to the Dominions 2 Game that I have it hosting using the Public IP address of my cable modem it can not connect, when I use the private IP address of the server machine of course it works fine.

It seems to be an issue with Port Forwarding, or with the game listing only for packets sent to the IP address it detects when you create the game, (It of course detects the private IP of the Machine it is running on rather than the Public IP of the cable modem).

I am trying to run the server on Windows 2000 Pro SP4.

If anyone knows a way around this I would be very happy.

Thanks in advance, Grim Knight
