I'm glad you appreciated my post!
But no matter how much I read I really could not get a clear cut answer on these most basic questions.
Honestly, nobody can give you a "clear cut" answer, we're still struggling.
Are the frustrated guys just guys who dont know how to pert forward or is there something more insidious?
He let me know that he stumbled at port forwarding, and had to drop his firewall entirely to get it to work. I'm pretty good at port forwarding, but his post implied that port forwarding was not enough (or he does not know how to do it compeltely...) If I had to drop my firewall entirely, i would not do it. but ofcourse, i doubt this is the case...
I am no expert on port forwarding. But I do know how to port forward at my computer. But I have doubts about the ports to be forwarded. Maybe we have to find a few more [ports] to be forwarded. Here
is what I know. I dropped my entire firewall because I can't find the cause of the problem. You seem to know much about it. I could use your help find some missing ports [to be forwarded], if you like to host a MP game?
Do you know an application which monitors connections?
I find that by simply posting a simple set of questions, you often get through the trees for the forest much faster. and in a way that is more useful to the new guy (thats me in this case) who is considering getting on board...
Same here. I agree it doens't work. Not to blame any EECH guys, but it seems not to work [in the world of forums]. I think there a sort "rule of thumb" about this issue. Post as many question you can count on 1 finger!
who is considering getting on board...
will give you a little more understand of our status quo. The game is still pretty much under construction, especially the MP part.
Let this post not discurrage you. I still flew a couple of hours without trouble!
Only without a firewall as well!
You seem to have a lot of expertise, maybe you like to give it a shot!
