Yes...welcome!

If yer playing on the same network as the server, you'll have to connect via "Refresh LAN" vs "Refresh Internet".

What's the IP and port?

Cemetary, are you on a LAN with your server? I don't show pings on mine either, or at least not until I am in a game. Someone with more tech skills can tell you why, I just know what happens.
Certainly you will get some responses here, but you can also post on the DMF Boards. There is a section for server jockeys there. Perhaps a message to both would work doublely well.
Good Luck.

Fergot to mention that if yer on the same network as the server and you go to "Refresh Internet", it won't show a ping. You'll have to contact someone outside the server's network to make sure it's working okay.

If it's not, then you'll need to check the firewall of yer network...

Cemetery, check out the Log Scan section of the DMF forum, too. Killer very carefully tells one how to figure out the best fps and other settings to best use your connection speed. You have your server currently set to connect 32 clients, but it was lagging and getting ping spikes with the 7th connection. Check it out It did seem to help with my server.

Hiya Cemetery!

Would you like to add your server to the TM LogScan server list?

Its a system I developed which scans your log files while your server is up, andd tracks player stats on my website. It also allows you to set up events (like a DDM for example) and have the results instantly availible at the end of the match. It also lets you set up Ladders for your server and more!

If you're interested, give me a holler at sera@boomstickjoes.com

Check out my website to see the currently listed servers:

Glad we were able to get yer server online and showing. I'd recommend a software firewall fer yer server now that we stuck it in the DMZ. I'd still recommend Sygate Personal Firewall since it's free...

Did I mention that it's free?

Hi Cemetery

If you can see the server on LDAs the master se server but zero pings then its your firewall not passing on the reply from LDA

You need to open the port 12499 and get the firewall to pass it to the your local server
