      Trackmania on SKY

      I downloaded the free version of Trackmania (which is awesome btw) but I cant play it online because of port blocking or something. I think the game needs port 2350 open and it uses P2P so players can swap stuff online. So does anyone know if Sky blocks this port or has some kind of traffic shaping to stop P2P?

      I don’t believe sky block any ports at the moment.

      Your best off checking any firewall settings you might have, and also if you are using more than one pc, you’re going to need to set up port forwarding to your pc....

      the game works perfectly for me. it must be your firewall.
      the ports trackmania uses are not required for gameplay as just playing only uses outbound connections

      I have both Xp and Vista and installed TM on both. On XP I use Mcafee firewall, which must be the cause of the problem as you say, because it works fine on Vista which only uses the windows firewall.
      It doesnt run as fast on Vista so I need it on XP so I need to sort out Mcafee. I have checked that it isnt blocking TM so is there anything else I can check?
