Hey, I am very much enjoying this game but I have noticed that for some reason when I host online nobody joins... I'm guessing the problem is that I need to forward my port but when I checked google there was no info on it about this game, so if the devs or somebody could tell me what the range is for forwarding that would be really helpful

The two ports are: 27632 & 32500
It worked wonderfully for me!

Go to, portforward.com (http://www.portforward.com) Its the most extensive and easiest way to learn how to open up ports and forward them properly.

That's fine. Just follow the instructions that you would do for another game. Most games and apps that use port forwarding have the same steps you would do to correctly forward the ports on your router. The only thing that changes is the port that your opening.

For the port range I chose "both", and it seems to work fine. If one of them overlaps another game, you don't need to do it again. Since the port is already open, it doesn't matter what the name is behind the port you assigned it to. Any game or app that uses that port will still be able to use it. Just make sure that you have both ports open.

To be honest the only reason I can think of is to stop people or malicious software from going onto your computer.

The ports are UDP.
If you were to open all your ports (1-65356) you would leave yourself open to many types of computer exploits. This is basically what you do if you put your pc on the "DMZ" of your router (allow all incoming requests). There are many vulnerabilities for the lower ports (1-400) that allow things like Sasser, Blaster, and many other types of malware to infect your PC. I never recommend turning off your firewall software/hardware completely, and, unlike the ubisoft techs on this forum, I would NEVER suggest you plug your computer directly into your broadband modem unless your modem has a NAT firewall or you are at the very least running windows firewall service to prevent becoming infected. Even a Windows machine that is fully updated is vulnerable to alot of these attacks.

That being said, the UDP ports for COJ2 are perfectly safe to open since they are not assigned to any Windows specific service or protocol.

If you can't find the information you need on port-forwarding.com you might check out the first section of my Guide to setting up a COJ server (http://www.forum.clan-grom.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=339) where I discuss the most common routers people have and how to forward the correct ports to your server (please notice though that the ports are different on COJ2)
