Well I still love my automap and would love to beable to run it as a server for a guild but for the life of my hubby and I we cant get it to work behind a switch on DSL. We followed the instructions on the uoam.net web site but still nothing. Anyone have any suggestions?

I can't get to the UOAM website to see what instructions youre referring to, but I bet it says you need to enable port forwarding on one or two ports as well as have your firewall allow it, am I getting warm?

It is better to use a dedicated host if you are going to be using it for a guild. Also if you start getting half a dozen or more people in map it could negatively impact your internet connection.

UOGuide offers hosting for just $5 per month.

UOAM by default Runs over tcp/ip port 2000.
You'll most likely be behind a NAT'ing router. Like a Linksys, Dlink, Netgear or something the ISP provided.
You have to log into that, usually via a web interface. Say if your IP address is 192.168.1.50 your router will most likely be 192.168.1.1.
192.168.x.x, 10.x.x.x are common internal network IP addresses.
if you have an external IP address that does not fall on the 192.168.x.x or 10.x.x.x or one other 172 something or another your dsl modem might be doing the NAT'ing router for you. Try 192.168.0.1 or look at the bottom of the modem, you'll most likely have to get the access code from the bottom of it anyhow.

After you have found out how to log in find out your IP Address of the machine you want to make your "host" or "server". (from the command line on windows "ipconfig /all")
Forward the firewalls outside port 2000 to your ipaddress 192.168.1.50 port 2000.

Once you have it configured instead of trial and error testing you can run a portscan from the outside of your network by using a friend with nmap or a web based free service like shields up
Link to shields up :
https://www.grc.com/x/ne.dll?bh0bkyd2

You can determine your outside IP address by going to a website like
http://www.network-tools.com

Once you have verified port 2000 is up and running you can connect to your outside IP address.
