Game Hosting HELP!

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I was playing SWAT 4 with some people I know last night and one of them wanted to host his own server. He told me that no one could ever see it on the server lists when they refreshed, and he told me that his firewall was off and all this other stuff. I also tried hosting to see if mine worked, and it showed up on the list but no one could join, as it said "Could not connect to server" or something like that. Any ideas?

Why not just run a server with Hamachi?

Oh sorry, I did not know. Uhhh...I tried looking around on google and I found something but it was too complicated. Had to open up the command prompt and do all this crap and change blah blah etc.
