Hello i'm new to the forums and I was wondering if you guys can help me with my hosting issue. I have a linksys router WRT54G and have already forwarded the ports 6112-6119 for my computer's ip address. I haven't been able to still host when all firewalls are down....I'm REALLY FRUSTRATED haha I just would like a little bit of help thats all :).

Thx

ok this ones easy. I'd recommend going to blizzards online help section. they have step by step instructions for most routers and software firewalls. The reason you can't host games (like half of the players on bnet) is the ports are being blocked...probably in multiple places. You need to open ports 6112-6119 on your router (and port 4000 if you want to host in StarCraft) And if you're using windows firewall its most likely blocking those ports aswell.
