Ill try to explain my situation a bit better.
I want to use the laptop as the server, just because its not my gaming pc
It has a wifi card and a lan port.
1 For testing the Dedi i used the wifi and disabled the lan intreface in windows. Once ive configured the .cfg file as demo (and commented the ip address) it says "ON LINE" and no red messages listed.
1.5 Look like its working at this stage.
2 Now i move to my game PC which is attached also with a wifi card to the same router, i open up LFS, click on list demo servers, cant find my server. Nothing is lost yet, so lets try to use the option for a specific server. I enter the name of my server and it starts connecting, but then it says client connect: connection failed.
So lets try something else.
1 Server runs on the laptop
2 Startup LFS on the laptop while the server is running, and list demo server. I couldn't find my server listed.
3 start the game and type in the localhost ip 127.0.0.1 and it connects, but i needed to create a game accessable from the internet
Thats really odd i think. Going to try again tonight, It will work somehow
I might want to investigate what my modem actually does with forwarding ports in the firewall :S (its a sagem 3202 or better known as Wanadoo live box or orange live box)
