[cod] 2 servers on one machine -Help, Friday deadline!

Also you should run each server from a different directory, otherwise each
will overlay the others config_mp_server.cfg. We run two CoD servers and one
ET server on the same machine/NIC with no problems but they each have
seperate directories and, of course, use different ports.

Hi ck,

Yes you are right, but this is on the internet and you send a heartbeat
and information to Activision with wich ip and port you are using. Thats
why you wil find them in your browser. But when you use LAN the clients
have to find the machines themselve. This will be a problem because the
are broadcasting on UDP and if you use 2 nics with same Port the client
will only pick up the first response (the first COD server who response).
This is why i say use 2 ports on different NIC's.
