I have my ports forwarded and when I create a game, in the lobby I type /netinfo,
it always shows that my Client UDP is 27547. I tried downloading the 6112.reg but that hasnt' fixed it. Any ideas?
The most common mistake with port forwarding is that you specified the wrong IP. Make sure the PC you play bw on has a reserved IP address. (Look in DHCP settings)
If not, your router could assign a random IP address to your bw-PC and as a result, it will be port forwarding nothing.
There's really only 4 things you need to do:
1) Port range forward 6112-6119
2) Direct it to your brood war computer's IP (ex: 192.168.0.10)
3) Make sure it's on TCP/UDP
4) Make sure your computer is on a static IP within your local network
Open your TCP/IP properties and set DNS 220.127.116.11 and 18.104.22.168
this should fix your UDP client port to 6112
Unfortunately, I have added that setting for the DNS and the wrong port is still being bound to.
razorsuKe already told you what to do.
Please provide more info on your router brand and model and I can help you with a step by step procedure personalized for your device.
Hi guys i have the same problem i opened the ports 6112 to 6119 and still cant host. Do you know what is the problem when u have forwared the ports? thanks
type /netinfo and make sure your pc is really using the 6112 port.
If yes, you have to forward your ports properly
hey iccup,face when i type /netinfor it says that my ports are all ok im using 6112 so dont know what is hapening abit embarrasing. i tried all and still cant make sad...
Try with virtual ports instead of ports forwarding, some routers work that way
I haven´t been able to host last couple of month.
PC, router (it supposedly isn´t a router, only a box with a firewall that is used to connect to my ISP - never had to do anything to be able to host using this earlier), ISP and general system configuration is unchanged.
I am on a static IP.
/Netinfo says client UDP is 6112.
What can I do to diagnose / fix this problem?
