Linux game server

By geek-from-hell ·
Lets start with specs. Mandrake 8.1, SOHOware broadguard router/hub(latest firmware. The linux box has static IP which I have DMZ host open for that IP and have also experimented with port forwarding for the game port. The game by the way the Half life DoD mod. The problem: All the status on the server says it is running fine. However I cannot see it from either the Inet or my internal network. I am new to Linux and I think I may have missed something on the linux box. Would love help on this. If anyone has a DoD server running on linux...HELP!! :)

First thing to do is just ping it and make sure the ethernet interface is working. Also, can you hit the internet going out from the system?

using one of the outside sites I can tracert to the linux box and get a reply that tells me that the port is open and letting me in but it seems to me that the linux box is not accepting info from that port. Is there a place that I need to tell thelinux box to accept data from that port?? Something similar to lmhost or setting a trusted domain in MS products??
