Tring too many things can make it worse. When using DXport but sure you don't have any other NAT services running. When working with all this stuff one wrong setting could make it not work. To remove DXport just delete it and remove the settings under NAT on the router.

Atlas_s,

No rudeness perceived or insult taken. Most of us have been in similar situations at one time or another.

To further expound on what Scott (wsware) said in his previous post and hopefully rid you of any worry that DXPort has messed up your system...

DXPort does not change any registry settings or other system settings. It does not install any drivers or services. It does not intercept or modify network traffic. While it is running (and only then) it opens all ports in the DirectX range that are *NOT* in the range you specify. In other words, it clogs up all the DirectX net ports which forces DirectX to use the port range you want.

If you delete the folder where DXPort is installed, it's gone and there should be no traces of it left on your system. Then do like Scott said and remove any port-forwards added on your router when you started this project. Hopefully that will get you back to where you started.

David
