Have you patched to the latest version of WaW?
Are you fully port forwarded?
Have you enabled punkbuster?

We need to know some details before hand.

Have you got the latest version of WaW?
Patch 1.1:
Patch 1.2:
Patch 1.3:
Patch 1.4:
Patch 1.5:
Patch 1.6:
Patch 1.7:

You need to also patch in the order top to bottom.

You need to fully port forward before people can join 99% of the time. The ports you need to forward are: 28960 TCP and 3074 UDP.

If punkbuster is disabled then that might be off putting...

the server host has to patch the game not the guy hiring the server...
chances are your server is either appearing so far down the list no 1 sees it... if thats the case change its name to a higher alphabetical ordered 1...
make sure its running the stock maps and your not asking your players to download huge unstable mods...
go to some anti cheat sites like pbbans or aon. if your a server mod you can leave a post with your server details asking for players...
if you want to make sure your streaming to pbbans and aon as well as punkbuster... advertise this and you will get players who want to play on secure servers... also the server host will have a forum for the game, advertise your server name there also...
just remember though, the more anticheat servers your streaming to the less bandwidth you will have for players... i found pbbans and pb to be the 2 best because if you get banned off either you ban will show on aon...

HEXiT I'm presuming he's hosting it locally and is curious as why nobody is joining... If it is a server host he of course does not need to patch it.

Just presuming shame the OP didn't give more details.
