View Full Version : Firewall help

10-12-2001, 07:51 AM
Hey guys, was hoping some of ya would be able to help me out here.
I've got a linux firewall running and sharing my cable connection to my other comps - now, i wanna be able to host net SWGB games on my comp, from behind the firewall. I've forwarded all the ports that AoE uses, and that got me able to join other games, but i still can't host. Other people just can't see the game. Any ideas??

Thanx :)

it could possibly be a bug w/ the demo

I've got the same thing. I have a linux firewall, accually, two of them. I CANNOT HOST AT ALL!!! It's not a bug with the demo. Trust me...

I can't connect to the zone either because of my firewall :(

i'd like to know the answer to that as well.

i'm getting a DSL connection real soon and i want to know if this is going to effect my hosting of online games for swgb.

I only own a 56k... but it is usually good enough to play smooth games. I only have problems if I host, and rare then...
