Servers

How do you host a server so you don't have to be in it. Me and this guy on Xfire want to play my maps on mulitplayer but we can't find each others servers. Help?

Well there is the dedicated server, but when you launch it you wont be able to play that server so it might be good to get another copy and use one copy to host the dedicated server and the other to join it. Also there are ways to pay for servers too.

If you make a dedicated server, and then join a friend through xfire you will be able to play on it. However, no everyone can host. If you are behind a router, you are going to have to forward ports, which basically allows the server traffic from repcom to go in and out of your router's protection.
