    Hey all :) I'll get to the point.

    I have been wanting to play this game live for several years. Now I have it on PC, and I need one last step.

    It requires that I open certain ports. example:

    Source: 1024-5000 Destination: 88

    Source:
    3074 Destination: 3074

    In my router settings, it says "Start port:" and "End port:"

    My question is; how do I open 1024-5000? Is it start port 1024, end port 5000? (but then where does the 88 in "destination" go?)

    Or do I open all the ports like 1024, 1025, 1026,... until 5000?

    I use Windows Vista, and I use a LAN Internet Connection.

    If your router allows you to forward port n to port m then you could forward each of those almost 4,000 ports to port 88.

    If your router allows you to forward a range of ports n1-n2 to port m then you could forward ports 1024-5000 to port 88.

    If your router does not have the above feature you could buy a router that does.
