[Solved] help on BF1942 Dedicated server ports

Hello,

I'm currently on a VPS trying to run a dedicated server on a Windows Server 2008 R2 Datacenter
which need the ports open to allow a bf1942 server. But I'm pretty stuck at the moment, cous I can't
get it showing on the master server.
What I've done so far is adding these ports in INBOUND RULES on the windows firewall
TCP Ports: 28900 , 14667 , 4711
UDP ports: 14567, 14690, 23000-23009, 27900

Isn't this all the ports that's needed for a dedicated server ?

Have you updated the host file? http://forum.bf1942.sk/gamespy

For the ports its enough to open 14567udp and 23000udp, i would atleast skip the consol port (4711) its old software and propably easy to hack.

Thanks!

I also did this:
I found the host file in - c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\host
then opened the host file and added a new line in it

109.71.69.254 master.gamespy.com

Now server is showing as it should in server list :)
