I've literally scoured the internet, tried everything, and still cannot get my friends to be able to see my server. I originally hosted on both OA and A2 and had no problems. I used TADST and it simplified the server hosting for me and all was well.

Ever since the steam update, clientside servers are impossible to see (even on A3?) making the game broken and the server-hopper community dead. All i see in my list is epoch servers, when i used to see domination, survival of chernarus, wasteland, zombie mods, etc.

I need help with hosting a server on 1.6.3. since i've literally tried everything i could find without making a post. Servers are not visible, remote connecting is dysfunctional, and BIS should've fixed this 2 months ago when the change to steam was made.

I recently had the same problem, wanted just client side A2OA and nothing could not the server I was trying to connect to. So I tried and the other person was not able to my client side server.

I tried port forwarding my PC and placing this on the DMZ zone.... still nothing, made sure fire wall was open for A2OA.... checked logs... still could not find out why I could not host a client side server from my game as you would in the past (pre A3 days).

The only solution I could come up with was to set up my HP N40L micro server as a dedicated A2OA server. After installing windows, steam, ARMA versions, and everything else that comes with a clean build. I still could not get my old dedicated server script running! it would not load my mods from the profile config.

After messing about for some time I decided to installed withSIX and use the server launcher on this program. to my surprise it worked! It loaded all my mods I had entered in to the target line field and run my server.cfg no problems

When I was first experienced this issue there was nothing on BIS forum or any other fan page forum. I have no idea why this is but all I can put it down to is the Punk Buster -> STEAM migration for anti cheat monitoring was not done correctly and something has not been set up on the STEAM side to allow client server hosting.

Guess no one cares about A2OA since DayZ has hijacked the dedicated server listing.

Good luck with this issue and I hope someone in STEAM is watching this forum and will implement a fix after they test it out and work out its not working on end user PC's
