I used to play a game named Age of Empires 2 via a program called Hamachi. Hamachi would work as a VPN in that it would assign everyone on it a IP and trick the computer into thinking each computer in the network was indeed connected locally.

Now instead of going through the hassle of internet game play I would use the Hamachi client and load a game simply through its own Lan network option.

Recently the only thing that changed was that my modem and router were plugged out. And one of the guys on the network updated his version of Hamachi during the same time.
Ever since that happened I have been unable to host a game.

The guys on the other end can 'see' my game being offered but wouldnt be able to join it. Me on the other hand, I am unable to even see their game when they go to host. So I am thinking some how a firewall got turned back on.

Now I have been trying to turn off all my firewalls but have had little luck. I figure I haven't turned them all off cause I have yet to see that "red" shield indicating that this computer is no longer protected. So I am asking you guys if you know how to check what firewall is open?

if you are running XP SP2 then goto control panel and secruity and turn it off there

also you may have other firewalls - what programs do you have

Norton secruity
Mcafee secruity

and many others come pre-installed

have you installed a firewall your self???
