    # Hearthstone Realms Configuration File
    #######################################################################
    
    /********************************************************************************
     * How to use this config file:                                                 *
     * Config files are in a block->variable->setting format.                       *
     * A < signifies the opening of a block, the block name is expected after that. * 
     * After the block name, a space and then the settings sperated by = / ' '.     *
     *                                                                              *
     * e.g.                                                                         *
     * <block setting="0" someval = "1">                                            *
     *                                                                              *
     * Comments can be in C format, e.g. /* some stuff */, with a // at the start   *
     * of the line, or in shell format (#).                                         *

    <Realm1 Name = "Test Realm"
            Address = "[hostname]:8129"
            Icon = "PVP"
            Colour = "1"
            Population = "1.0"
            WorldRegion = "1">
    Then your server is configured for public.

    3. Making sure it works

    To make sure it works have a friend try to log on with the hostname you made.
    If it doesn't you may need to forward the following ports: 8129, 8092
    Here is a guide for every router on how to forward your ports just choose wow as program and replace there ports with these.
    PortForward.com

    I hope i helped.

    Be sure to leave suggestions.
