Dedicated server?

Listen servers are easy, just start the game, click "Host Game" in the main menu, and the choose what mutators, map, difficulty and that stuff you want and then just click on "Listen" at the bottom right corner. And this is for hosting a dedicated server

I can only answer for listen servers and it sounds like the problem is that you have to open some ports in your firewall. When you click on host game you see the ports I'm talking about. People cant join if they are not open.

Try and see if your friend can join if he right clicks in the favorite or internet games tab and click on "Open IP" and then manually writes in your server IP, if that doesn't work I guess it's firewall problem or router like MRU said.

If you're using a Router, you can't host on a video game without forwarding the dedicated ports on it in its configurations. This is because they will, by default, block foreign connections trying to come through it. This results in people not being able to "see" your game. Games will produce error messages saying "not found" or "not responding". You need to Port Forward ON the Router, using any and all ports used by the game, to fix the issue. You could also drop the Router and plug straight into the modem, bypassing the entire issue. But then you'd only have 1 PC plugged to the internet. By having a Router, I assume you want >1 PC with internet connectivity. How to Port Forward varies on every Router, but it is very easy to do on Linksys and Belkins, which are most common.

Firewalls also block the connections, again requiring you to safe list the game, the ports, or to simply turn it off, in order to get the connections through to you.

Here[] you can find guides to forwarding ports on many different routers for many programs/games.

The portforward guides didn't help you figure it out?

doesn't tell me which ports for Killing Floor need to be forwarded. Just how to do it.

lolwut, I portforwarded my router when I was like, 12...

Anyway, I'm also having this same problem. I already configured my router AND opened the ports in the firewall and my friends STILL can't join me!

I tried to but it keeps on giving me errors

My router doesn't even HAVE port forwarding options.

And you had to reply to a 6 months old thread to say it? Look harder though, it must be there.
