Network Issues/Setup

One of the biggest issues with hosting either type of Iron Grip : Warlord server is when you are trying to host an internet game through a router/NAT.

The first port of call to fix this is to forward the correct port, the port you need to forward is the one defined by net_port (default 5961 for dedicated or 27690 for listen). It is best however to forward a range from your set port ie 5961-5971 (Its up to you to figure out your own router and how it works, look for NAT and or virtual server or consult the internet on forwarding ports for your router). However, if you are not running a client, opening the default ports of 27950 to 27970 will make things more easily compatibility with 3rd party programs like QTracker.

If you're creating a listen server it might be best to set your net_port to 5961 or something other than the default especially if you plan to have lan players (we have had some internal issues with this and found best to set your port to something different if you have problems).

To set your port for a listen server you will need to run the game with the switch +set net_port <portnumber> you will need to add this at the end of a shortcut/batchfile/launchcommands as this needs to be set before the game is launched.
