Hello, I have a problem. I hosted an AgeOfEmpires game through the internet yesterday that my brother joined without any problems. But today when I did the same thing he could only find the game, but he was unable to connect. What is the problem?
Did you set up any firewalls recently?
No, I haven't got any firewall except the XP one, and that is turned off. My brother has also turned his off. I've forwarded ports 2300-2400 TCP & UDP and port 47624 TCP. We don't play through the zone we use the Internet TCP/IP connection. I give him my ip address and he finds my game, but when he tries to connect it says "Unable to connect". Also, he has no problem joining and hosting other games. So it would seem that the problem lies on my side?
If it does lie on your side, try reinstalling your copy of AOE. It should fix the problem. Let me know if it doesn't =]
