Posted it on Emupedia, might as well post it here, as a lot of people can't seem to figure it out:
How to configure Kobold using DNS.

In my opinion, it's the only way to properly configure kobold, as it prevents all realmloop problem you might have. Btw, this config works for any emulator ;)

1. Collect info first. You will need to know your own IP and DNS.
You can find this info on . Offcoarse you can also register your IP at a free DNS provider like f.e. no-ip.com. If you use your own, just replace the dns-name used in this example by your own dns-name.
In this example I will use IP:123.0.0.123 and DNS:123_0_0_123.adsl.ispnet.com

2. On the server, open the file C:WINDOWSSYSTEM32DRIVERSETCHOSTS with notepad, and add your DNS right below localhost like this:
Code:
127.0.0.1 localhost
      10.0.0.10 123_0_0_123.adsl.ispnet.com
(note that you if you want to play from another machine on your local LAN, you will also have to add the same line to the HOST files on that machine.)

3. Configure your conf files:
LS:
Code:
      LoginServerListenIp = 10.0.0.10
      LoginServerPort = 3724
RS:
Code:
      RealmConnectAddress = 123_0_0_123.adsl.ispnet.com
      RealmServerListenIp = 10.0.0.10
      RealmServerPort = 3725
WS:
Code:
      WorldServerListenIp = 127.0.0.1
      WorldServerPort = 4200

4. Check your SQL tables:
Realm_list:
Code:
ID: Name: Address: Port:
      1 My Private Kobold 123_0_0_123.adsl.ispnet.com 3725
worldserver_list:
Code:
IP: Port:
      127.0.0.1 4200

5. On your router, forward ports 3724 and 3725

6. Tell your clients to set realmlist 123_0_0_123.adsl.ispnet.com

All done Cool

PS: Please stick?

For multiple realms, just add another DNS on a different port
