I have a major problem playing Age of Empires online and I really need some help. Whenever I try to host a multiplayer game through "Internet TCP/IP connection" the game takes more then 1 minute to create. But when it is created people can only find the game, but they can't join it. When they try to join it they get the error message "Unable to connect".
Also, when I try to join someone elses game through "Internet TCP/IP connection" by using their IP. I can't find the game, even though I know it's there and others can find it.
I have forwarded ports 47624 TCP and 2300-2400 TCP & UDP on my router. And I have turned off my firewall completely.
I have tried uninstalling the game and re-installing it but that did nothing.
What else can I do?
