Not sure why that is not set to DO_KickBanPlayer by default on 469.
Only this won't help the server getting online ;)

As far as i can see, your server should be shown in the list.
Have you tried removing the firewall entries, and re-adding them for ucc.exe and unrealtournament.exe ? (Windows sometimes does the strangest things when paths/folders gets changed)
Do you maybe got any other AntiVirus/Firewall active that could be blocking the traffic of UT ?
If so, verify the exclusions/exceptions in there as well.

One good advise: change your admin password as soon your server is online.
Okay I will update a bit later when I do that.. Also the admin stuff was all made up for this so its fine

Maybe here is missing a bit of security, [...]
If it's the default settings I don't blame the guy, I had never even heard of these options until right now.

But yeah, it would be nice to set this, maybe with a low interval to prevent false positives.
"Everyone is an idea man. Everybody thinks they have a revolutionary new game concept that no one else has ever thought of. Having cool ideas will rarely get you anywhere in the games industry. You have to be able to implement your ideas or provide some useful skill. This also applies to mod authoring. If you become a skilled or notable mod author, you will find people propositioning you to implement their ideas. Never join a project whose idea man or leader has no obvious development skills. Never join a project that only has a web designer. You have your own ideas. Focus on them carefully and in small chunks and you will be able to develop cool projects."
