In my config I have listed:

//
//Master Servers
//
sets sv_master1 "cod2master.activision.com"
sets sv_master2 "master0.gamespy.com:28960"
sets sv_master3 "master1.gamespy.com"
sets sv_master4 "cod2authorize.activision.com"
sets sv_master5 "cod2master.infinityward.com"
seta sv_gamespy "1"

I have restarted the server several times and still cannot see in the In Game menue or at the above link.

I tried set instead of sets too.

What am I doing wrong?

Thanks, Butch

Is your server being run behind a router? If so you will need to open the correct ports for it to show up in the ingame browser and the master server list, linked above

No I rent my server from a GSP.

I have Game Switching and usually play UO.
Tomorrow I'll switch to COD2 and allow to run all day.
Maybe it will show than.

Thanks,
Butch

Try changing this
Code:

//
sets sv_master1 "cod2master.activision.com"
sets sv_master2 "master0.gamespy.com:28960"
sets sv_master3 "master1.gamespy.com"
sets sv_master4 "cod2authorize.activision.com"
sets sv_master5 "cod2master.infinityward.com"
seta sv_gamespy "1"
to this:
Code:
//
//Master Servers
//

seta sv_gamespy "1"

Server Listing

A number of servers are suffering from the 1.3 patch, as their servers aren't listed. I've attached a tool that was created by a fellow UO1 member, El Diablo. It basically issues a query to cod2master.activision.com.. the server then returns the list of servers.

Prior to the 1.3 patch we were consistently in the 1-30 range on game-monitor.com. Now we're in the 700 range. We think part of the problem has to do with how slow our server lists in the in-game browser. Sometimes it's not there at all and other times, when it is listed, it takes over a minute.

Does anyone have any idea as to how the server list is created? Is a newly created server simply appended to the end? If so, what happens when a top server reboots? Is it then added to the end, or does it retain its spot?

PM me if you would like the source... it's VS.Net 2003, C# code

TIA.

No clue. I noticed, even with your utility, that every time I do a "refresh" my server's postion changes, varying anywhere from 8-or-so-hundred to 3-or-so-thousand. It's got to be some sort of polling thing from the master server, so I think it's probably luck of the draw.

In the past the only solution was to change your IP address. Not sure if it's a port issue because all your servers are running off the same IP. Can you bind more than one IP to the server and assign them to each

If you have access to public IP addresses (data center) you can add more than one IP to the server by binding said addresses to the network card . Same computer but with multiple IP addresses (public facing)

If you are running this behind a router at your home, you can't and more than likely the reason the master server can't see nor list your other servers. Your clients would have to manually type the IP and server port for the other two computers.

Well, I cant. In my option, there is no possibility to add any new ip's, but I cant believe there is no other option, to make all three servers visible in ingame list.

i've figured it out by myself.

adding this rule to iptables did the job.

iptables -I INPUT -p UDP --sport 20700 -s cod2master.activision.com -j REJECT
