When hosting a server does it use TCP, UDP, or HTTP? Also what port does it host the server on?

    I was wondering this for port forwarding to make my server playable to my friends.

    EDIT: If found the port number it is in the logs of the standalone game. But what kind of server would it host TCP or UDP
