Okay so here's the deal. I have direct cable connection for internet, that means that I have a cable from my internet provider and I plug it in in my pc and I have internet, there are no configurations or routers.

Every time I host a server for games, and I tried for:

- Killing Floor
- D.I.P.R.I.P.
and various steam and non steam games

the server always turns out as LAN. So my problem is no matter how I configure the server it always hosts itself locally and not on the internet despite the server tools giving me the ability to host it as LAN or Internet. But no matter which option I choose it turns out LAN anyway.

I really don't know how to research this problem on google so I hope some of you guys will be able to help me.

My firewall is disabled and i use KIS 2012 as a security measure.

I guess it's because you don't have a router, something needs to assign an IP to your server.... not to sure, sorry.

Thanks for the info.
