    Ok first a couple questions,

    1. Are you on broadband?

    If you have dialup or lower end of DSL you will not be able to host games. You need to have broadband. Also some DSL's dont allow multiple incoming connections (think your running web server)

    2.. Are you at work or inside someone elses network?

    If you are chances are you will not be allowed any incoming traffic, players connecting

    3. Do you have a router?

    A router is a device that allows multiple internet connections. Your router must also have the ports enabled to play. You can get the maker and model number off the router and check thier website on how to config the ports.

    4. Do you have the latest game updates?

    If there is a patch available get it and install it. Got to have latest version for peeps to be able to see your server.
