another problem is that if you host your own server it wouldn't be seen in the server list (i never found mine anyway) but you can dress the IP to someone you like to invite....
depends if you set it up right, dedicated 1 is lan only, same as 0 basicly is, you need it to open as dedicated 2, best way of doing it is to create a shortcut, just like the jolt link tells you that jester posted.

although routers can often be the cause of it not showing up under "internet"
and if your on 2.60 it can take a while for it to show in the lists.

only problem i found with jolts guide was there command this:

D:\\ET\\ETDED.exe +set net_port 27961 +set com_hunkmegs 64 +set com_zoneMegs 32 +set dedicated 2 +set fs_homepath 27961 +set sv_punkbuster 1 +exec ET_server.cfg

only problem is its got a dual port in the command,now if you run a mod with the command like this:

"C:\\Program Files\\wolfet2.55server\\ET.exe" +set dedicated 2 +set fs_homepath 27961 +set net_port 27961 +set fs_game jaymod +set sv_punkbuster 1 +exec server_cfg/server.cfg

it seems no one can connect or see your server at all, remove:
+set fs_homepath 27961 and the homepath folder is gone and your servers folder becomes the mods folder, yet players can see and connect to your server, never could figure why, any of you guys know?

(excuse the slight changes in the commands, as i just used the command line from a shortcut for a tj server i host from time to time)
