    When I use WC3 with my Norton Firewall 2003, I cannot create clans and people cannot see my games. How do I set my router so it will let me do these things with WC3?

    figure out the port the game uses then get in the router menu and open the port. be sure to close the port when you are done. i hear a lot of script kiddies try to hack during the playing of that game so watch out

    so that's the only way? it seems annoying to have to open and close ports every game.

    oh yeah, and DeathDealer, I make a game and my friends cannot find it. I have gotten error messages when making a clan to disable my firewall.

    Well that is nice. I play Starcraft too and it works fine. Warcraft 3 is a little more complicated than Startcraft though.

    So can anyone help me?
