appartment complex...

Post by Vheox » Sat Aug 16, 2003 3:03 pm

My appartment is on Road Runner cable, and apparently behind a router, but of course I dont have access to it, and so can't DMZ it. I tried to use DXport... but haven't a clue how it works, despite reading their page. Put just about everything combination of ports I could and still can't connect to games in mercs. Oh yeah.. I have no idea which router they are using.


Same prob...diff location

I'm having the same problems as many of the guys on here:

I can see the server list, pings, and players, etc.

When I click to connect I get:

"Cannot connect to Server. Network problems or server may be gone." or whatever that stupid MicroShit message says.

Unlike most of these guys I'm at a college campus. I've tried to use DXPort and I wind up like Vheox - I have all these available ports and everyone is talking about forwarding them. How do I do that? Please help.

My info:

Router: Unknown
Firewall: ZAP (though i can't connect even when the FW isn't installed)

You're out of luck if you don't have access to the router. You need to be able to forward ports from the router to your PCs.
