Windows 2008 r2 server issues

Hello, all. I've been running fine with an XP server. But recently Disco made some changes to FLHook 3 and had issues w/ the xp and hook. Issues are fixed now but in the interim I set up the server on a machine running windows 2008 r2.

I used the same numbers in tcp/ip under ipv4 that I had for the XP machine. I unchecked IPV6 and even disabled it under regedit using HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\TCPIP6\Parameters\Disabledcomponents w/ a value of ffffffff

I added the ports to outbound rules under TCP in the firewall individually and did a netstat -an w/ the game running. I cannot see the ports in the list and I cannot see the server in the server list.

Anyone know what I'm missing? I'd hate to go back to XP.

Thanks.

You installed the DirectPlay module? It's no longer installed by default with Vista and up.

No. Looking for it now. Just install it or do I need to modify anything?

Hmmm, I think I installed business instead of Home. Think that might be the issue>

Hi,

Just one point, Flserver uses UDP and not TCP, so if you don't add rules under UDP it's normal to not see your server in the list and it can't be accessed by others.

Cheers

I had tcp in win xp and it ran fine. I'll try adding the udp after I'm done with updates. I did see a 2302 udp in netstat but nothing coming in. Thanks for the help. I'll try it and let you know.

OK, added the udp to firewall and no dice. I ran updates but don't see DirectPlay or legacy features anywhere. Still looking.

Maybe, by installing directx 9.0c (wish is the version running on XP), it installs the missing directplay, just a theory

Nope. Directx 9 did nothing.

DirectPlay is separate from DirectX and was deprecated with version 9 so you need to install it separately for it to work. It should show up as an option on 2008 R2.

You also need to disable DEP for flserver.exe.
