hey yall, i have this problem for a long time already. Whenever i create my own game server, it is not listed in the lobby, therefore nobody joins my server. Then people told me that the problem is because i use a router with NAT resolution (which i do). Then someone told me to open certain port range (8888, 45001 UDP, etc.) so i did, but my game still not listed in the lobby, Anyone here is smart enough to show me?! the reward is: ill give you a Gmail account which has 1000MB storage (biggest)

I know many people have had problems with their routers when hosting games. There are many people who can make a game, but not have it show up in lobby. I just recently found the fix for this.

Go into your router properties (usually by typing in 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1 in your internet browser). Now look for Block WAN requests and change it to disabled. On the older linksys routers, this is on the filters page, while on the newer linksys routers, this is on the security page. Once blocking WAN requests has been disabled, everyone should be able to see your server in the lobby.
