  • Is it possible to join non-dedicated Call Of Duty servers over internet without having a valid game CD key? Sandeepan Nath

    First of all, I have little knowledge about hosting a dedicated public game server so I may be using some wrong terms in this question. Please correct me if you find something.

    I know that we can host a COD server without having a valid CD key (by just selecting Start a server"... or something like that) but cannot join one - it kicks out. I think this is called a non-dedicated public server as it can be joined by users over internet.

    There is also some way of hosting a dedicated public server, but I am not much sure about that.

    Now, my questions -

    • Will the servers simply created by clicking on "Start a server" be visible by other users when they go to "Join a server"?

    • If not, I guess users who know my IP, port can join my server by going to COD terminal and typing

      connect IP:port

      Can users who don't have a valid CD key join?

    I am sure they can't join the dedicated servers listed under Join a server section, but not much sure about the non-dedicated ones.

    By the way, I have recently purchased the game and have a valid key. I am asking this to know if my other friends who don't yet have the game can play on our own non-dedicated servers over internet. I am not able to enjoy the game because of the high ping value due to absence of local dedicated servers. Please check Good public/dedicated call of duty servers list for players in India please!!

  • It can't be done without resorting to piracy, and perhaps not then.

  • I have successfully setup a dedicated L4D2 server on my Linux box. I can manually connect to it with connect <myip>, so I believe I have all the basics setup correctly. I'm trying to get the server to show up on the "Steam Group Servers" list so that its relatively easy to find and configure through the UI. However, its not showing up there. There are some servers in there from other Steam Groups I'm in, but not this server. (As far as I can tell, the server isn't showing up anywhere in the UI...)
