XP, Vista, W2008
Host file location =
C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc\hosts.ics

Navigate to C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc\ on your server and create the file hosts.ics and add this line into it - replacing ASP_ADDRESS with the correct IP (85.25.27.4 for gpm_coop, 85.25.27.12 for gpm_cq)
Code: Select all
ASP_ADDRESS bf2web.gamespy.com



save the file. Read more about hosts.ics

Host file Locations =
xp C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc\hosts.ics

Ready to go hosts.ics - NOT FOR W2003:
Coop Server = http://85.25.27.4/hosts.ics
Conquest Server = http://85.25.27.12/hosts.ics

Open a DOS box with "cmd" and type: ping bf2web.gamespy.com
You should get as responding IP
.a) the IP of the AIXS gpm_cq CDB: 85.25.27.12
.b) the IP of the AIXS gpm_coop CDB: 85.25.27.4

W2003
In case the hosts.ics file does not work on your Windowsserver (W2003) another way would be installing Treewalk on your server.

    1. Download TreeWalk DNS HERE.
    2. Download the according TreeWalk Configuration Files
    .a) for our AIX CDB gpm_cq HERE.
    .b) for our AIX CDB gpm_coop HERE.
    3. Install TreeWalk DNS with Basic Defaults Setup.
    4. After installation of TreeWalk DNS reboot your server.
    5. After restart go to "Start" -> "Programs" -> "TreeWalk" -> "service" -> "Stop DNS service"
    6. Unzip the downloaded treewalk_config_XX.zip (null.zone.file and filter.conf) to the dns-directory of TreeWalk, default is C:\Windows\System32\dns\etc - check for the appropriate directory on your machine.
    7. Overwrite the existing "filter.conf" when a pop-up box asks for confirmation.
    8. Start TreeWalk again: "Start" -> "Programs" -> "TreeWalk" -> "service" -> "Start DNS service".
    9. Flush DNS Cache: "Start" -> "Programs" -> "TreeWalk" -> "tools" -> "Flush DNS cache".
    10. Open a DOS box with "cmd" and type: ping bf2web.gamespy.com
    11. You should get as responding IP
    .a) the IP of the AIXS gpm_cq CDB: 85.25.27.12
    .b) the IP of the AIXS gpm_coop CDB: 85.25.27.4

Linux
Host file location =
/etc/hosts

The hosts-file usually contains examples how to properly add the redirect.
Replace ASP_ADDRESS with the correct IP (85.25.27.4 for gpm_coop, 85.25.27.12 for gpm_cq)
Code: Select all
ASP_address bf2web.gamespy.com



save the file.

ping bf2web.gamespy.com
You should get as responding IP
.a) the IP of the AIXS gpm_cq CDB: 85.25.27.12
.b) the IP of the AIXS gpm_coop CDB: 85.25.27.4

BE AWARE MOST OF THE INFORMATION ABOVE IS NOW OUT OF DATE DUE TO THE CLOSURE OF THE GAME SPY SERVERS.

SEE HERE:- https://www.bf2hub.com/home/

MOST AIX | SERVERS HAVE SUCCESSFULLY MADE THE CHANGE OVER, NEW SERVERS COMING ON-LINE WILL NEED TO INSTALL THE BF2Hub FILES.
