      Hosting an online game - router settings

      Hello,

      I am attempting to host a game of Dungeon Siege (old game around 2002/03) for myself and a few friends.

      Unfortunately, I cannot get the router settings to work.

      I understand that I have to configure the router to open the required ports to host but having tried this, it still does not work.

      If I host a game through Zonematch then someone else can see my server but cannot join.

      Can anyone assist by posting some idiot proof instructions?

      Thanks

      Av

      Hi

      Have you got the port numbers that are required? Can you post them on here?
