Hey all,
In Starcraft and in Rainbow Six: Rouge Spear, apparently no one can join my games that I host. I have no idea why, i turn off ALL (and i mean all) firewall and protection software that's on my laptop. I have an XP OS, and somebody mentioned that XP has some sort of firewall that has to be turned of in a "special way." Is this tru, and can anyone give me this special way? Or are these guys pulling my leg and its a simple problem? Help PLZ!!

Danke,
Homki890

even if you had the firewall enabled on xp it shouldn't block gaming. do you use a router? it may be necassary to open the ports on the router for those games.
