Bypassing router for hosting servers

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
ok i was wondering if this would work...

i have a nic card and an ethernet port....would it be possible to have the ethernet connected straight to the modem so that when i make UT2004 servers i don't have that router firewall problem? in other words, i'm in front of the router insead of being "shielded" behind it. then take the nic card and have the router connected to that....its just my PS2 right now and later my parents computer will be connected but my parents are waiting for a HD cuz i stole the one from the HP

is this possible? here is a picture

I'm pretty sure you can, but it you would need to experiment with that a bit... Personally I'd prefer to do this under Linux, but it should work fine under Windows as well.
Basically you would use an internet sharing service to get the internet to the router again, but I think you would have to disable the routers DHCP Server.. or you would have to make the computer an DNS Server as well? I'm not sure how this would work, but your going to have to fiddle around with some internet sharing settings, and your routers internet settings.

Well before getting into anything really complicated, I'd say just connect the computer with the two NIC's normally, bridge and share the internet connection with the other NIC, and set a static IP to that one, than tell your routers internet settings to connect to a static IP instead of being assigned by DHCP.. then see if the other computers behind the router have internet access.
Actually I'd like to try this myself, see if I can get some servers working as well.

Anyone else have ideas to this?

The router should have an option called DMZ.

""Demilitarized Zone". A computer that logically sits in a "no-mans land" between the LAN and the WAN. The DMZ computer trades some of the protection of the router's security mechanisms for the convenience of being directly addressable from the Internet."

Or you could do that... I completely forgot about DMZ; so you tell the router to bypass the firewall to your servers IP, although for some reason I feel like there still could be some problems, just because it's behind a router, but maybe not.. just give it a try, see what happens.

Well, you could find out what port is used to by the game (the 5 other numbers) and go into your router settings and just forward the port to your computer or server. (Whatever you use to host the server)

Like when using BT you have to unlock a certain port range because it needs to use these ports to connect to others.
