Ok, I'll try to sum in short what needs to be done in order to be able to play P'dox games. You may want to look at threads on this topics posted on their forums:

  • Step By Step Router Setup
  • Router/Firewall FAQ
  • Router configuration library

    So, basics. You need to forward ports. That means tell your router that any traffic coming to those ports should go to you PC you play on. It's usually done via browser where you enter your router's IP address (192.168.1.1, 1.0.0.138 and similar, trz to look for this address in router's manual). There, look for port forwarding or sometimes NAT (my case).

    Ports you need to forward:
    2300-2400
    28800-29000
    47400-47700

    In practice, you need just few of these. I use 2300, 2301, 2302, 2303, 2304, 2305, 28800, 28801, 28802, 28803, 28804, 28805, 47624.

    You need further assistance, refer to this topic. See you online Smile

    All right, I think I see what I did wrong. I need to try again.

    I finally have a minute to get back to this router issue, I need the global port range and base host port number for the game on v-net. Can anybody give it to me real quick?

  • Do I need to set each of those individually?

    Ron, all you need is those ports (or ranges if you can set it up on your router) I posted above. I had to set them one by one because my own router doesn't allow me to specify ranges. But if yours does, go with ranges.

    My router allows ranges, but my firewalls require specific portsBanghead

    Since that was not working, I enabled global rip. Can we try that?

    I have been back 3 times, I did not see the game. listed or your names. Are they not listed while actually playing?
