      1) Click Add Custom Service

      2) Name - BHD1

      3) Choose TCP/UDP in the drop down box

      4) Start port 17479

      5) Finish port 17479 click apply

      6) Click Firewall Rules

      7) Under Inbound Service, click add

      8) Service - choose BHD1 Action: Allow always

      9) Send to LAN Server - 192.168.0.2 (should be your PC's IP address)

      10) Click Apply

      11) Try serving your game and ask someone to try and connect

      Re: games help

      Hi mate, if youve followed nr advice above, it should work ok, I notice that you have put .04 at the end of your address. Are you connecting wirelessly and are there other pc's on your lan (3?). If so then you will need to setup a static address for that pc and alter the services accordingly.

      Is your PC definitely 192.168.0.4?

      Thats too high unless you have manually assigned the IP address.

      Are you on XP?

      btw - you don't need outbound, only inbound.

      Re: games help

      You need to change the IP in this step:

      9) Send to LAN Server - 192.168.0.2 (should be your PC's IP address)

      to the PC that you want to host the game.

      So if your PC is 192.168.0.3 then that's the IP that you would use.

      Re: games help

      Have you got a software firewall on your pc 192.168.0.4?

      If so turn it off.
