Modern Warfare Mod 3 brings World in Conflict from the Cold War into the Modern Age. It also ups the ante on realism and authenticity in every role – Infantry, Armor, Support and Air, while trying our best to keep everything relatively balanced for fun and interesting gameplay.
This is a quick tutorial on how to play online multiplayer with the Modern Warfare Mod.

The reason why there aren't any MWM dedicated servers is because WiC's dedicated server application (WiC_DS) only runs at 10 frames per second and is incredibly buggy. Simply put, it will crash with the mod running.
The only way to get WiC_DS to run with MW Mod is either Massive fixes the bugged software or release its source code for community to fix. In other words, WiC_DS cannot be supported by MW Mod due to technical problems with the software.
But that won't stop the mod players from playing MW Mod with a buddy or friends online. We'll show you how.
World in Conflict game can also act as a server with you hosting the game. To host the game, simply log onto Massgate with your ID, create a match, and send invites to people on your friends list with MW Mod running.
However, many people are unable to host a match in their game, simply because they have not configured their internet firewall to permit WiC to provide game hosting.
To host game with WiC, you need to make sure that following network ports are allowed through/opened on your firewall. Moreover, if you have a dedicated router/firewall providing Network Address Translation (NAT), you may need to configure it to have an open "gaming port", "port redirection" or "static NAT" for your computer's LAN IP address.
Open following ports for World in Conflict:
TCP & UDP: 48000 through 48100
TCP & UDP: 52999
UDP: 22993 and 22996
