I think I posted a similar thread berfore. I now have a PIII 733MHz EB, 256megs of ram, 60 gigs of hard drive space and an Asus motherboard. I downloaded and installed the Halo dedicated server software from microsoft. I can install it and start it without a hitch. However, when I go to try and connect to it with Halo installed on my gaming PC, I can't see it or direct IP it. When I type in the direct IP it tells me my client is older then the server. How do I fix this? I told Halo to update but there were no updates availble.
- How do I set the software up to run online?
- How do I control the server?
- What about port forwarding? Do most IPs block the port that the dedicated Halo server runs on? What port does it run on and how do I change it?
- Lastly, Does anyone have any tips or tricks for hosting a Halo server?
