I have seen people have that probelm when there is a problem with the start up command. Are you trying to run its as a service threw TCAdmin or Firedaemon?

Try redo the start up command give this one a try.

+set fs_savepath C:\your main game file folder +set dedicated 2 +set net_ip 0.0.0.0 +set net_port 28960 +set sv_maxclients 32 +set sv_punkbuster "1" +exec server.cfg +map_rotate

For people who have 4 out of 5 servers up and running, it is time to find what the difference is between them. Hardware, DirectX version, Windows Version (and patches), directory structures used, config differences, and even what else is running on the server (i.e. a CoD4 server using the same default port).

SOMEthing is different. But it isn't necessarily your machine's fault that it is crashing either.


The other approach is to find what all the servers having this problem have in common. That would require everyone having this problem to list all that same above information to be compared.

I wish that was true.
Got 2 exactly the same dell machines with both a clean win2008 installation. Everything is exactly the same except the IPs. 1 Had Far Cry installed on it, that's the only thing i can think of as everything else is the same (have not installed anything on it).

Have you tried removing the +exec server.cfg from your start up command to see if its a config problem. When you remove that it will load its own defaults. Worth a shot to see if it goes threw.

You can stick with 28960 or change it to something else like 28961 and so on.

I can tell you one thing that will hopefully keep you from going down the wrong track: it can't even remotely have anything to do with DNS, in ANY operating system. The only function that DNS servers is to resolve fully-qualified domain names (hostname(servername).anydomain.com) to an IP address. None of the Call of Duty games use domain names ANYWHERE to start up. The only place you'll find it is in the HTTP Download Redirect dvars.

Does your console stop at DW_AUTHORIZING also?

That's a new one but i may have some ideas for you let me do some test.

I am still working on the original problem (Not a Lan BS)and have gotten it tracked down some more.

The Lan error looks to not be in the configuration of COD but somewhere in Windows its self that its atching its self to. Thus not letting any Subnets out side of the local network connect to the server.

I am looking for away to tell COD to shove it and pull the connection anyways.

The Authentication and Master server are done via DNS. Both point to cod4master.activision.com (but different ports: Authentication port is 20800, Master port is 20810)

in that case i don't think I'm authenticating....

ps I'm using same key for dedi server and my own at home......never been an issue before...doubt it's that this time..

even tried adding set sv_master1 "cod4master.activision.com"

PS the way it proceeded earlier was to turn off dns(accidentally entered a wrong digit while testing...oops)...

so back to original hang problem.....but I think we've narrowed it down to dedicated server authentication...(perhap):confused:

I dont think it would be a dns problem every one would have the problem if it was

The Domain Name System (DNS) is a hierarchical naming system for computers, services, or any resource participating in the Internet

IE: There the Servers that tell a URL to pull up an IP Address, The Card Catalog of the internet.

The only thing would be a firewall blocking the ports needed to authenticate with Activision mater server.
