For my clan I need a second gr-server.
Can be on the same machine or a different.
I have a very fast adsl line so that should go.

On the router I have forwarded the port.
But for a second server I need to forward that one too.
I think I have to change the portnumbers on the second server. But how?

You can forward the ports in the router setup to your second (server) PC's interal IP address.

Then create the dedicated server shortcut:

Make a second copy the GR shortcut on your desktop.
Rightclick the copy>properties and in the path URL, add:

-autoserve

(that is a space, then the text, no space between the minus sign and autoserve)

You can then rename the shortcut like "Ghost Recon Server" and connect your first PC via the LAN setup while others connect via your external IP.

If you want to have both PC's working as servers, I think you'll need a second external IP address from your ISP. You can probably forward the ports in thre router setup to 2 different PC's = internal IP addresses, but only one will work at the time.

GreyHaired is correct. You can forward the ports to both, but anyone outside of your internal network would, at best, be able to connect only to 1... You could confuse the router and it may misdirect packets to the wrong computer too. If you get a 2nd IP from your ISP, then the IP should (on some routers) pass through. If not, then get a hub, connect 1 server to the hub, and the router to the other. That will work
