Direct Connect in Generals
« on: February 20, 2005, 12:01:57 am »
Me and my buddies tried to direct connect in generals.  We are all behind routers.  When I create a game, they enter in my external ip address (not the 192.168.0.xx address that my router gives me), but are unable to connect, as they get connection timed out. I have a couple questions:
1.) Do I have to open the Generals ports on my router (the ones listed in the readme.txt)?
2.) Is it possible to direct connect behind a router?

from the back of my head I thought Direct connect only works on LAN networks. Not over the internet.
