Ok, i've looked through all 3 pages on this forum to prevent double posting about the same problem, but i cannot find anyone else that has my problem, I am using Windows XP Home Edition and i am not on a router. The problem is people cannot join my created custom games BUT i can join other peoples games. I have asked many people ingame and they all say they think its because i have a firewall enabled on my computer.. i have unchecked the firewall under control panel>network connections. That didnt help any.. im so lost and i have no clue what to do! I also cannot send files on AIM or MSN messanger, if anyone can please help, i'd be SO greatful. Thanks in advance!
Well its obvious you have some sort of program that blocks outgoing data from your computer. XP does come with a firewall, but if you said its offline, might be another kind of firewall. If its one of those firewalls that can't be disabled, then I'm afraid you're out of luck.
Is there any more advice you can give me or anyone else? I really would like to fix this problem, i can try anything, please! thanks.
