Default Zone problem?

Not sure why, but set up a server privately and everything went smooth.

Soon as i switched it to public, i can login and boot up the first character into any zone, but after they are in that zone, nobody else can load into game into any OTHER zone (people can zone in to the zone the first one does but nothing more.

Not sure what is causing this and i dont see any error logs about it after going through them, so i guess my question is doesnt anyone know why this would happen and/or a possible fix? help is greatly appreciated

For every zone that is booted up (player enters a zone), a zone launcher (and a port) has to be available. So if you have 20 players, all entering a different zone, you need 20 zone launchers and 20 ports available. I do believe the default in the config is 7000-7100. It can all be tailored to your own preferences, in both the config and zone launcher table in database. I have mine set to a common 7100-7500, with that port range opened up. But since my server is not public, I leave the zone launcher in database at 10 zones available for myself and a couple friends. Just keep in mind, any zones that have booted up, once empty, will not go to sleep until the timer is up that is set in database (zone table). Timer is in ms, so 5000 is 5 seconds.
