ping high + internal ip and external ip problem

im having trouble making my own host in the game TRON 2.0 MP. the reason i think its because my internal ip 192.168.7.2 is different to the external ip 212.159.87.1654
and because of this i believe my ping is high.

the firewall on windows xp and firewall on the adsl router config through http://192.168.7.1 are disabled so i know they are not the cause.

Gamespy's help menu say's that online games have to have a direct access to computer to be successfull.

i recently had help from plus.net saying

"Dear customer - from what you are saying - it would seem that the software is telling you that you need a public ip (ie an ip block) in order to assign this to the server machine. "

so can u tell me how to do this public ip

thank u

This may not be the case, and will depend on what connection equipment you are using.

If using a router, you will need to place a forwarding rule in the routers config, to point the port (or ports) the game requires at your internal machines IP.

As for USB and PCI, you will need to make sure that your Firewall software is not blocking the ports needed for your game.

You should consult the many games admins sites about, for details on ports, and possibly forums where other have shown examples of what needs doing.

The router's manual or manufactuer's website will tell you how to setup port forwarding, it is usually quite straight forward depending on the model.

Best learn how to configure your router and the game server itself, before you plan on hosting any games.

You will need to know:
1. What ports need to be forwarded and there type TCP / UDP, then How to forward those on your router.

2. Game server tweaking to limit connection speeds, so each player connecting doesnt use more bandwidth than they need.

3. the limit for each game for your connection, the upload speed is the limit for most games, plus the Power of your server CPU/Ram more the better. Ideally any server needs to be run under linux for stability.

So you have some homework
