In my terminal
ERROR:UPD_OpenSocket: bind : Cannot assign request address
Opening IP socket xx.xx.xx.xx:28960:28960

I have tried to turn off the firewall on the box and DMZ the router. Still the same error.

My startup line is /cod2_lnxded +set net_ip xx.xx.xx.xx +set net_port 28960 +set dedicated 2 +set sv_punkbuster 1 +exec dedicated.cfg

The error line looks like it's double setting the port.... is there any chance that on your startup line that you have the set port twice? Maybe the 2nd instance has scrolled off the right side of the screen and you're not seeing it?

i take it it's the same setup for cod uo as well?

also sorry in advance i am a total newbie to setting up a linux server,
do i have to partition off the drive on my linux server that is located at the datacentre?
reason i ask is i want different game servers like:
a server with coduo modern weapons
" " classic weapons
" cod2 modern weapons
" " classic weapons
and if it comes to pc cod4

i don't know how to do this.could someone guide me please as i pick things up very quickly.
do i have to create seperate login accounts i have no clue at this stage.

thanks if theres anyone who can help us out i would be forever in your debt.

it is a out-of-the-box server.

i also understand i have to sort a few things out on this new server in order to start serving these game servers any guidance on that would also be grate ful.

Yes, this same setup will work for vCod and coduo.

No need to partition, unless you really want to.

You should make seperate users for each game instance, and run each game as the user you created.
