Maybe your firewall is setup without the ports opened

Try without your firewall turned on
or if you can't switch it off
Google for the ports and then unblock them

If you use a router then you need to forward a range of ports. Have a look at this page and look for quake III. The ports are the same regardless of your router type.

When I looked into this, Quake 2 can only serve games across a LAN you will need a program like allseeingeye to make the game available over the web. I think other people put your ip into allseeingeye and it will list your q2 game for them to connect to.

I have the version that first came out BUT this will not install from the cd. I had to instal onto a Win98 PC and the copy the entire directory over. I also applied the official patch 3.20 on the Win98 PC before I copied over.
