Server problem

Hi, I started a server for red orchestra and I have it up and running but when viewed from the list of other servers the ping is not there and it says not available, Can anyone help me , And when you try to join the server you can’t . server is windows professional and I have avg. running.

if you use a firewall you must configure it properly , also if you have a router you must forward the ports

What happens is that the port number changes , we get it to work the first time and if we shut down and restart it changes and we have to manually put the right port number in.

Do you have static ip?
