I just tried, 12:15 AM Central in the US on 2/6 and timed out...btw you can do the same using IIS, which is built in to XP (er, can be installed)

D'OH!

i turned it off right around then to play wolfenstein...!

ya, i know IIS but for what i'm going to use it for, doesn't IIS use a little more overhead?

...and according to Slashdot if I install IIS my head will explode and the FBI will arrest me.

you know something funny? my ISP says I can't run an FTP because I'll take up all the bandwidth, but some punk running simultaneous P2P and Quake3 servers is no problemo!

eegad.

try now!

typically..

IP's do not crack down on that kind of stuff unless you are abusing the network and utilizing a large amount of bandwidth on a regular basis. If you are using a cable/DSL connection ,or something faster, you are usually allowed a large amount of traffic per month and can get a dynamic IP that lasts a lot longer then a dial-up IP (unless you order a static, but who would want to serve with dial-up?). Bottom line is usually you can run a server for friends and will not be bothered.
