Hello =)
I'd need some help setting a Server for Age of Empires 2..
My ports are all closed by my ISP but my friend has them all opened
I even checked what ports AoE2 is running on and made sure Firewall dosen't block them
However i never done it over the internet i only experienced LAN partys :)
So we tryed...He made a server on TCP/IP Serial connection and i tryed to find him with the ingame server search
Even got his External Ip and still didnt find anything
Any tips from any of u would be realy realy nice
I thank u in advance!
:)

if your the one hosting the game, then it's your external ip that matters.

you can check here for additional network info: http://www.geekstogo...ng-t102163.html

It also might be easier if you both of you used xfire and joined the game using it.

You could try a VPN client software like Hamachi(free). Install it on all the computers you wish to network and you can play over it like you would in a LAN environment.

We do it all the time to play DotA even with someone on the other side of the planet :)

Yeah Some ISP's can be right bums and close your ports but i think if you ring them you can sort something out to open your ports
