      Exclamation Help Hosting/Joing Game

      Hello,

      I'm having a spot of trouble hosting a game. I can Join games but for some reason Age Of Empires will only show my IP as 192.168.0.2 when i host one. I understand i have to do some sort of disabling DMZ/DCHP server thing .

      Any Idea?

      You would probably have to forward ports to the IP of the PC I would have thought?

      Let me know the port numbers and I will help you through it.

      Re: Help Hosting Game.

      Initial TCP Connection 47624 Outgoing 47624 Incoming
      Subsequent TCP Incoming 2300-2400 2300-2400
      Subsequent TCP Outgoing 2300-2400 2300-2400
      Subsequent UDP Incoming 2300-2400 2300-2400
      Subsequent UDP Outgoing 2300-2400 2300-2400

      Are the required ports.

      I've sort of port forwarded these but not too sure if its right?





      Also should i touch any of these settings?





      .

      When i click on "show Ip" in AOE it states "192.168.0.2" would this affect me hosting in anyway, and i should get my real ip from the router page?

      Cheers
