You could try "Tophe's Server Tool:
http://www.armaholic.com/page.php?id=11656&highlight=TOPHE%255C%2527S%2BSERVER

This will allow you to run a dedicated server and, disable the beta build (Server Rules).

It may help

9/10 this is due to different versions of Arma running.. .are you 100% sure you are all on the same version as the server? If you are using the beta version I would try going back to the latest stable release.

Your high ping problem is most likely not Arma-related unless your server config file is messed (where you set bandwidth, etc).

Bless you my son.

How did you install Arma 2 on the dedicated server? Did you use Steam for this as well? Are you running the Beta version on the server by chance? Do you have BattlEye enabled on the server?

So when you said your buddies can't get into your COOP games do you mean ones that you have hosted on your PC or ones running on your dedi? And just to confirm.. you connect to your dedi and you get a 2500 ping in-game?

(sorry for the 500 questions..lol)

Also I would double check you have the correct ports forwarded.. 2302, 2303, 2305

Incoming:
port UDP (used for game)
port+1 UDP (used for server reporting)
port+3 UDP (used for VoN transmissions)

Outgoing:
port UDP (used for game)
port+3 UDP (used for VoN transmissions)

Bless you my son.

1 i am using this server http://www.armaholic.com/page.php?id=11655
2 i am hosting games from my pc . i run the dedi from my pc also. then startup arma 2 look for the game im hosting on the multiplayer screen and thats where i see my pings 2500. i dont have any problems with other games in my collection hosting or playing. i can join other games online no problems there i just cant host this one.

3 i have a belkin router and my port forward is set like this ........ incoming port 2302 udp private port 2302 and the other 2 are set the same way. i take it belkin routers private ports are outgoing ports ???

lol stick with me guys and thnx for all your help

Hmmm...well personally I've never tried hosting and playing on the same machine (by running 2 separate .exes) although I know it is certainly possible.

The ping is probably just a mis-read or something as the host is the same PC... probably don't need to worry about the outgoing ports as most home routers don't block outgoing. Do you have any firewall or other AV software running? If so completely disable all of it.

If your buddies can't join the dedi it's most likely port forwarding that is the problem.. have you tried just hosting the game on your PC (and playing too!!) and see if they can join then?

Bless you my son.

im going to follow this thred i have the same problems with my ta2dst i run the server tool from a laptob with a seperate arma 2 in some cases it only shows up on lan other times it shows up normaly but then i get the wait for host message my battleeye is updated client and serverside the wierd thing is that it seem to acur randomly sometimes theres nothing wrong and other times to do anything but over lan

i think i know what causes the problems try hosting a mission and a mods that does not require beta patch i the ta2dst does not work with mods and missions that require a beta pach
