I am a student in halls, to be able to play online i need to e-mail the central server and (assuming they wont mind) get them to open the ports the game needs. Unfourtanately i dont know what ports the game needs for the internet. Anyone help?

You need ports 6500, and 3659 and 3658.

Gamespy also needs 27900 if you are planning to host games.

Good luck!

i'm having a hell of a time getting it to work......i've tried opening the ports all to no avail.....

i can't get into the games that i create on my PC and try to join with the PS2 version of the game.

it's a tad frustrating

I have opened up the following ports on my firewall to no avail:

2600-2900 TCP
2600-2900 UDP
3658 TCP
3659 UDP
6500 TCP

I used a port viewer while trying to connect to an online server and jotted down all the ports and opened them up. I even exaggerated the ranges a little to get a bigger range of ports in there and I am still unable to connect from behind my firewall.

Will someone from Pandemic/Lucas please address this issue? Firewalls are more and more common this day in age and I would greatly appreciate some sort of official guide/list of ports to getting the online play working through a firewall.

Thank you kindly.
