Can anyone help me, please?

27888 (by default) unless you've changed those numbers. (will appear on your Server IP Address) You can change this number to anything you want by going into host options. However, it's 27888 by default and if you're trying to open ports on your router, then it probably wants a range which would be 27888 to 27888. That should work. Make sure you're not running any software firewalls either because they will block players from joining as well. Good luck! :thumb:

Sorry, but I don't understand.

 

I have "unlocked" the Port 27888 - 27888.

Then I klicked in the NOLF 2 Game to "Host". By the Option "Port" I have write 27888.

 

But the Server didn't answered...:(

 

What is wrong?

you have to unlock the port 27888 (or the one that your server is using) in TCP and UDP. So you have to do two unlocks to make the server work. :)

I'm very sorry for this doublepost, but i don't want to make a new Topic of it.

 

Now i can make a normal server. But i can't make a "Distanced Server" because i haven't an other PC.

 

 

And here is my question:

 

I create a "normal Server", no Distanced.

Are there any commands that? (To ban someone, ect.)

 

 

Thanks in advance!!

First of all, to correct you they are called "Dedicated Servers," and yes there is a way to do so.

 

If you host what's called a "Pure Server" which you host and play at the same time, then you won't be able to do certain commands. You can still used SCMD commands which allow you to ban/kick players/change levels/change server options, but your options are slightly more limited. Also, hosting a pure server is said to cause extra lag than you would have hosting dedicated.

 

I recommend that you host a dedicated server which will close the game and give you a console (you can made modifications there if you know the commands) and then reopen the game while your dedicated server is running and join your hosted server through the LAN (Local Area Network) Obviously the server will be running on your comp in the background while you play the game on top of it, but if you join it through "Multi player (LAN)" (make sure the port number is the same) and click refresh your server should pop up in the list.

 

If you do this you will still get lag probably but hopefully it will be less than if you host a pure server.

Well, to answer that question and any you might have in advance, here's list of all of the SCMD commands:

 

 

SCMD Commands:

HELP - List all available SCMD commands.

LOGIN <password> - Logs in as SCMD Administrator.

LOGOUT - Logs out as SCMD Administrator.

LISTCLIENTS - Displays list of clients.

LISTMISSIONS - Lits all missions in current campaign.

NEXTMISSION - Go to next mission in mission list.

NEXTROUND - Go to next round for this level.

SETMISSION <mission_index> - Advances campaign to mission_index.

BOOTNAME <playername> - Boots client by player name.

BOOTID <clientid> - Boots client by client id.

ADDBAN <IP> - Adds IP to ban list (e.g. 123.456.789.012 or 123.456.*)

REMOVEBAN <banid> - Removes IP from ban list by banid.

LISTBANS - Lists all current banned IP's.

BANCLIENT <clientid> - Bans client by client id.

LISTGAMEOPTIONS - Lists game options.

SETGAMEOPTION <optionid> <value> - Sets game option by optionid.

 

 

Example of what you would type: scmd login (password)

 

scmd addban (player's IP address) OR scmd banclient (player name)

 

It's more effective to ban their IP address than their name obviously. Type in: scmd listclients to find the IP address of everyone in the server.

 

Hope that helped.
