Hi, here what i have
2 laptops running vista linked up to a home network
I think this is set up ok as i am able to access files off one on the other one!
Problem is i cannot play a multiplayer game between the two laptops? I have tried the
internet tcp/ip connection for directplay and also the local(lan) tcp/ip connection ....not sure which one i should be using.
anyway whenever i create a game i cannot see it on the other computer - i just enter the ip address of the other computer and the box does not show any games.
this does not matter which computer i host the game on.
heres what i have done so far to try and fix the problem.
-Installed latest directx
-opened port for age of empires seried in router ( BT Voyager 2100 )
-tried to allow port in windows firewall although i have now turned the firewall off.
Before i installed vista i had this game working fine with xp and the voyager router....can anyone help me please
