of course u need to pay.
we pay for CoW 14 EUR/month
search a server provider and ull see the prizes
example:
http://www.ukgame.com/gaming_servers/clan_servers.html
normal OFP:R server for 24 players = 13.60/month in UK!

but if i can tell u something:
dont open a server without massive gamer community or many friends.
nobody will play on it.
i closed my WW2mod server coz lack of interest. u can see how many work we spent into and what for...

Zulu bought a supa-dupa PC for server,
connected to Internet and voila.
he has a test server until he turned off his computer again.
IP will change after hes start again as did before couple of times.

Unless you've got a supa-dupa ISP to go along with it don't waste your time. You should have at least 5mbps upload speed or you'll just piss off players and they will leave.

Like Inc. said...why would you want to do that?

If you just have a small circle of friends, your're better off just hosting the game. Many issues arise with a dedicated server. And do you want to pay the power bill to keep the thing running 24/7?

At least with WW2MP we are fixing the mod, of course no one really cares except for a few.

I only cares for free version of server if is possible ... for what is OFPServer.exe ? Can I made server with that ?

EDIT:
I have sample.cfg and i converted in .cpp and im now editing, so when i get in OFPServer.exe I can tell mine friends my IP adress then they can join ?

That is the server file.

You should use either:
Flashpoint Win32 Standalone server 1.96b
ftp://www.flashpoint1985.com/flashpoint/patches/OFPServer_196b.zip

or

Flashpoint Win32 Standalone server 1.96c
ftp://www.flashpoint1985.com/flashpoint/patches/OFPServer_196c.zip

To find your IP you can use a site like this:
http://www.whatsmyip.org/

Now the tricky part. In order for people to see your sever you need to allow access through your Firewall, AntiVirus or any other software that limits applications access to the internet. Then if you're like me and have a router also, you need to forward ports 2302, 2303 on the router.
