    Hi,

    Me and my mate access steam using the same outward WWW connection. We both have our own valid steam accounts and can play Deathmatch fine in LAN mode.:)

    The problem comes when we try to play WWW games against each other, we can see each other but the connection times out.:(

    I heard somewhere that I need to port forward or something!?

    Any help is greatly appreciated as we want a game tonight!!

    Thanks

    it could be lots of things
    first, check your firewall; make sure it does not block internet games, some firewalls let lan work but not internet
    second, check for background programs that might be interfereing with hl2dm internet
    third, check your router to make sure that it has the correct ports open (27015)
    google half life 2 port forwarding if those don't work
