    Using 2 comps on WC3 -- problems hosting

    Hello,

    I play WC3 and my girlfriend plays also (both official versions), we are behind a router and I
    don't use portforwarding but port triggering. Everything works fine, but only one of us can
    host games, well, if the other one hosts a game nobody can join.
    Anybody with same setup where hosting works fine for the 2 comps ?
    (btw I have a netgear router and my software firewall, zonealarm, is turned off)



    Thnx
    greets
    Capa

    Easy. When you open/trigger the ports, you seems to have opened the port 6112 right?

    Well, it seems like you are both in the same Local Area Network, and then you need 6112 to let computer 1 host. If you want computer 2 to be able to host you need to open port 6113 too. I suggest you open all the ports from 6112-6119, in case someone else comes you your house, and then you dont have to do it then.

    Hawt.

    When you say open a port does that mean the firewall or the router cus my dad wont let me open 6112-6119 he means"there may be virus!"
