Well your going to need:1. Another computer if you wish to play on this server.
2.You must have a cable connection or above(no dial-up/56k).
3.Update Half Life to 188.8.131.52
4.Have ESF on both machines.
5.Once ESF is installed go to 'Internet Game'
6.'Create game' then at the bottom check the little box that says 'Deticate server(faster but not playable on this machine)'.
important is only step 6. (the little box)
and about your firewall
make sure you open the ports 27005(iÂ´m not sure about that) and 27015
also you have to allow traffic to the 3 won-master-server(donÂ´t ask me for the ips, you should be able to find them at planet-halflife)
No, those ips are not ure server ips!! Those are thw WON Auth server ids!! To check ure own ip, after u create the server, just go into HL, find ure server, and hit Server Info!! It shows the server ip in there!! There is probably an easier way to do it, but thats the only way I know of!!
