When it closes the game and it opens up the console, that means the server is starting. Does it have any errors in the console? if it just says sending heartbeat your server should be up and running.

You've got to be more explicit than that: which CoD? what do you mean by "get it to work"? a snapshot of you're console messages would be a start.

it just repeats "sending heartbeat"...
how do i get the game back on again? i tried starting the game up again, then i does the same thing but with another console...
theres no errors but says"hitch warning" now and again

It would appear that the server is running fine. When the console opens up type serverstatus and see if it returns any results. To join it, you need to open up cod again and then browse to the server (while leaving the console open) the console IS the server.
Hope that helps. -Justin

Reading between the lines I think he wants to run a listing server. He wants to play on the same computer that is running the server on. It sounds like he is a home user trying to run a server from home.
