How to: "Networking for the Gamer" guide
I compiled this guide from posts I made to the general WiC (World in Conflict) forum helping people to be able to HOST servers. I decided to turn it into a guide because a lot of the information is "generic" and as such will apply to all online games.

Here's the guide:

Also included in the guide is another (I noticed someone already posted a way to run servers as a windows "service") way to run game.exe's as a windows "service". The way I've described in my guide doesn't require registry editing and allows you to monitor (have the service restarted after a specific amount of time, should it crash) your service a little better.

Please feel free to distribute this guide, and make suggestions for future versions!

updated the link to the guide.
Anyone finding this information helpful at all? I can revise it if people are finding the information too general (I tried to keep it simple).

Looks ok Smile

Not much use for me since I don't use routers but I'm sure it will help people quite a bit into understanding routers/networking

Thanks. If you or anyone else have any suggestions on what could be added to the guide I'll be glad to revise it.
