yeah, the internet is ran to the whole area and paid for by the landlords... they gave me a static IP, would plugging in a router and using the static IP make it so i can open the port needed for the server to run?
The ISP will have to do some configuring on their end (ie call them back) but with a publicly accessible IP and a open router you would be able to forward ports for your game and anything else you want to run. Yes. I'd just do everything by the book though so there's no surprises. Don't wanna piss off the landlord if the bill increases a tad.
