Alright, in Ubuntu 10.04, I have both the Linux and the Windows standalone servers running (Windows under Wine). On the same computer, same account, under Wine, vanilla OFP detects both servers - I'm able to play in them and perform admin functions. Sadly, this is limited to LAN play (no other servers are available to choose when the servers are running).
I've also figured out how to open ports to both inbound and outbound packets using iptables. Unfortunately, no other computer in my home network can see the servers running (they never show up in GameSpy, hosting and inputting my ip doesn't work).
One other thing, the prompt doesn't return immediately after starting the Linux server. I can type in a command and then the prompt shows up, but not right after starting the server. Anyone know why that hang-up occurs?
I'll be doing some more reading and testing. Any more help with this mystery would be great!
Edit: I did some more testing. On my Vista computer, I ran the Windows dedicated server at the same time as the servers running on the Ubuntu machine.
OFP on Vista is able to see all three servers in the LAN screen, none in GameSpy. So, too, OFP running under Wine in Ubuntu.
Why are these servers only showing up in LAN multiplayer for me? Am I not supposed to see them show up in GameSpy?
I'll leave the Ubuntu servers running for a little while. The servers' names are 'ATS', one passworded. Can anyone see them in GameSpy?
