View Full Version : How can I host behind a DSL modem/router

Hi everyone, I have being trying to host a small PF session on both ubi.com and hyperlobby but the clients can't connect to my game (keeps timing out). I figure that its because I am behind a dsl modem/router and i have a local private address. Can anyone tell me how to setup the router i.e. the ports for napt. Are the ports udp or TCP?

The port is 21000 UDP for both UBI and Hyperlobby.
It must be port-forwarded using the router software.
Also your firewall must let communications through on this port.
And you must set the right IP (for UBI run il2setup and check that network is not set to a "default" IP).
9 out of 10 people can't host on UBI behind a router though.
