Yes it is because you're on a LAN connection. Find out in your router manual how to enable the DMZ for your machine, or use the virtual server by finding out what ports need to be opened. If you're using another PC to connect and not a router, im not entirely sure how, or if it can be done.

I use WinXP and Internet Connection Sharing and the only way I can host is to unplug the 2nd computer on the network.

I've tried everything, but have been told that WinXP does not port forward, so even if I set Local Host IP in the conf.ini file, I can't seem to get anyone to connect when I have both PCs online, because it doesn't know which computer to forward the information to.

Being a networking idiot, I've accepted this and just unplug my 2nd computer when I want to host.http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif
