A listen server is the alternative to a dedicated server. It is run on your computer while you continue playing
Advantages & disadvantages
- Easier to set up.
- Only 1 machine needed to run & play.
- Does not support the Redirect feature.
- Exiting the game ends the server for everyone else.
- Usually lower bandwidth and higher latency compared to a dedicated server.
Setting up a Listen Server
Open Killing Floor and click "Host a game". Choose your server settings and click the "Listen" button in the bottom right
Opening your Ports
Since Version 1007 uPnP has been added and so you shouldn't need to open your routers ports however, sometimes this may not work.
Ports that need to be opened:
TCP,UDP / 7705 - 7719 : 7705
TCP,UDP / 28852 - 28855 : 28852
TCP,UDP / 20560 - 20562 : 20560
For more information about opening your routers ports please visit your router manufacturers website for further assistance.
Since this is a tricky procedure it's best to check that the ports are open by using a tool called PFportchecker
