Hi,
I was wondering how you create a server and if theres any setting i should do.
I use wifi to play (i know it's frowned upon, but works really well) and my brother is on a fiberoptic internet connection, so he would be hosting the server.

First off, there is just me, my gf and my brother wanting to play, me and my gf live in the same house (both using wifi) and he lives in Sheffield, so it has to be on the internet.

Second, I have heard things relating to UPnP, is this something that should be set up before creating a server on his router, or would there need to be a port forwading process, which causes a problem as I have no idea how to intruct him in doing that....

We would like to play as a private server for a while, but are expecting to put it public after a short period.

Can anyone offer any help on this? Or know a server company that hosts doom servers?

thanks!!

Try with Hamachi I suggest. Hamachi create a fake LAN so you can join it even if you"re not on the same router.
