Host i can't
PortForward.com - Free Help Setting up Your Router or Firewall
if this doesn't help, google the name of your router to find out how you open ports, then open port 6112 and then you can host games, or you can have a look in the manual of your router maybe it says something about ports there too
How is it related to WE?
1) Open your router (Not physically! It should be in your Network, like any network location if you have a home net, then you'll have router's settings in a browser window), login (Login (usually 'admin'), password (empty or set by you).
2) Go to "advanced" tab.
3) There should be " Advanced Port Forwarding Rules " settings.
3) Make a new rule:
Application name: Warcraft
IP Address: 192.168.0.101 (or whatever your PC has in your local network)
Public Port: 6112~6112
Traffic type: Any
4) Reboot your router and PC just in case.
If you have default settings in your Warcraft (port 6112) then you should be able to host at this point. Make sure that your firewall application or windows firewall does not block your 6112 port as well.
Your router may have a bit different interface of settings (I have D-Link) but you've got the main idea. If you can't follow this guide post here a screenshot of your router's advanced settings, I will try to help.
OP needs to learn how to present his problem in a better fashion.
And you other guys should be ashamed of yourselves, whoring for reputation like that.
Well, port forwarding doesn't always help. I'm thinking my internet provider blocks the ports anyway, even when I reconfigure my modem, router and firewall
If any of you got linksys, I can help you..
And ever tried searching it on youtube?
What is it? Why does anyone need that rep? You make no sense.
This is a user with a single post which is not likely to give this abstract "reputation" so we just answered to make it solved.
If you don't know how to solve such a simple problem don't flame please.
P.S> Initial question is really retarded, but there's no need to post just to point it out.
He talks like Yoda and theres nothing retarted about Yoda, behind his simple post holds infinate wisom.
