[color=black]This is for people who are behind a linksys BEFSR41, BEFSR11 or BEFSRU31 router and want to configure it in order to host UMS games and be able to invite other players to AT. [/color]

[color=black]First thing you have to do is check what port your game is using to connect to The default port is 6112, but to be sure open warcraft, go to options, then gameplay. You will see the port number and have the option to change it. [/color]

[color=black]The second thing is finding out the ip adress of your router. The default is In order to find out the ip go to the command prompt (go to run, and type "cmd" to open the command prompt). Make sure the promt is C:\>. If it is not, then type "cd.." and press enter. If the prompt is still not C:\>, then type the cd.. command again and press enter, do this until the prompt is C:\> (note, that if your master hard drive is not labelled C:, then the prompt will have the label corresponding to your hard drive, so if your master hard drive is F:, the prompt will be F:\>) After you reach the right prompt, type "ipconfig/all". This will give you a list of ips being used by your computer. Look for the ip adress beside "Default gateway"; this is your router's ip adress. [/color]

[color=black]Now open your internet browser, and type the router's ip. It will ask you for a user name and password. Unless the password and user name were changed by soimeone else, leave the user name blank and type "admin" into the password box. [/color]

[color=black]You will now see your router's configuration utility. Go to the "advanced" tab, and then to the "forwarding" tab. You will now see the port range forwarding list. In the "customized applications" column, type a name for your application (it can be whatever you like, such as warcraft or warIII or whatever). Now in the "EXT. port" column, type the port your game uses in both the boxes. Next, check both the boxes under the TCP and UDP columns. Last but not least, go over to the "Ip address" column and enter the last digits of your Ip address (it can also be found by using the config/all command in your command prompt, beside "Ip address"). Now check the box under "enable", and apply the changes. My configured port forwarding screen looked like this when I was done: (see link) [/color]
