    N/a

    I'm seeing a huge number of N/A servers.

    Why?

    I think thatís what happens when a firewall isnít correctly configured for hosting online games. The only thing that gets through is the serverinfo messages to the masterserver. Also, if you see people playing on N/A servers, or see the same server never working, they are probably LAN games that havenít disabled the advertising function. I could be way wrong about this but I recall overhearing something like that, and it makes sense to me. It's kind of silly that these servers are enlisted by default though...

    PING NOT AVAIBLE might sound like ping out(="PING NOT AVAIBLE DO TO HIGH PING OR TOO MANY NUMBERS") might have something to do with it... Its the game engine that dosnt want more then 3-4 numbers on the ping list, and its quite stupid to ping a server what has over 10k of ping...

    Hello. I tried to host an internet server on WinXP and got the help to open up all ports needed on my firewall but I still get N/A and no one can connect. Anyone know what I can do ?

    Ports open:
    7777 UDP/IP Game Port
    7778 UDP/IP Query Port
    7787 UDP/IP GameSpy uplink
    28902 TCP/IP Master Server uplink

    edit2 > I just tried turning off the firewall and I still experience the same problem.

    i do not know how to help and, don't mean to sound harsh, you will probably get better answers by making a new thread in the tech help section.

    Wait a sec...I thought you said Crash always died O.o....I'm not dead yet

    The N/A thing may also happen when the server "blocks" incoming pings from outside (possibly doing lan game but using IP address for the "join" or they got firewall up as well...)
    I am gone...Radars won't pick me up
