Server behind a firewall

Hi to all

pls could you tell me info about which ports are Gametracker scanners using?

We have to switch ON the firewall on our server becouse a lot of attacks on it and the connectivity was fully blocked by them - ping growed to 1200ms = unplayable.

But after switching firewall ON (and we stoped attacks, ping again about 10ms) our server cannot be scanned by Gametracker - what i understood, but we would like to allow Gamtracker to scan the server again so pls could anyone tell me which ports (and TDP/UDP or both) Gametracker scanners using? or could anyone advice other solution to prevent attacks?

Thank you vry much for your help!

And i would like to add that we have already allowed ports 27960-27970 (servers runs on 27960 and 27969) and 27950 (idmaster) and 7130 (hlsw default) but still Gametracker see our servers that they are OFFLINE instead they are running smoothly.

And the game is Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory.

You should open the TCP/UDP port for the join port.
I am retired from GameTracker after 11 years and will not be responsive for support requests.

Hello, I'm already liberated firewall on all range 208.0.0.0 / 8 game tracker to see if it resolves ips and wanted to know which port the game tracker uses to communicate with the servers.

This would be the query port - which for games you do not enter it on the add server form, it is the same as the join port.

This is why we have a Guides and FAQs section.
(also linked in my posting 'signature' below)

You must allow the scanner IPs
GameTracker scanner IP addresses

Okay, you found the guides
(trust me; most people don't look or don't read)

I may be able to advise further if we have the game type, IP, join and query ports.
