Hi Rik111,

I'm assuming that you're trying to play a game with someone outside of your network.. Correct? If this is the case, then you need to give them your External IP, which you can find by going to this website -- http://www.whatismyip.org/ -- As long as your router is forwarding all the right ports to your Internal IP (192.168.1.blah), it should work.
