Make sure you have dedicated IP address.

Make sure you start your server with parameter: +set dedicated 2

Here's a helpful example server config that I'm using :D

You need to have these types of options specified in your q3config_server.cfg or autoexec.cfg and you also need a maps.cfg which specifies what maps to load and how to cycle through them. You can generate maps.cfg here:

And here's my command line for starting server:
/var/oa/openarena-0.8.1/oa_ded.i386 +set fs_basepath /var/oa/openarena-0.8.1/ +set fs_game baseoa +set dedicated 2 +set net_ip +set net_port 27960 &

Note that this is running on Linux. Your fs_basepath and net_ip should be different from the above.
