Can I host a server, if so, how?

OK here is my position:

1. I am behind a router (dsl, actiontek)
2. Dynamic IP(can i use dyndns?)


If so, how? It seems I always mess up :(


And I don't understand how to get it on the list server.

Thanks

Open ports

You need to open a port for both TCP and UDP. Default port is 5154
The killer link for that is portforward.com
Read a bit there before you do it, so you understand the concept.
If you re set up correctly, the listserver will find you automatically.
Dyndyns or no-ip.com will work. But wait until you get on the listserver using your Dynamic IP before setting that up. No need to add another layer of complexity just yet...

And next time, post your question in the correct sub-forum.
This belongs in Servers:General Discussion
The answer to your question is in that forum too. Read before asking.
Take a look at my Defender game mode concept.

Thinking is not an automatic process. A man can choose to think or to let his mind stagnate, or he can choose actively to turn against his intelligence, to evade his knowledge, to subvert his reason. If he refuses to think, he courts disaster: he cannot with impunity reject his means of perceiving reality.
