My router hates you WZ.

Post by Unit562 » 26 Sep 2012, 22:32

Apparently some part of my internet hates WZ2100. Windows firewall is set to allow port 2100, and the game its self, my worthless brick of a Cisco E900 is set to allow port 2100 on both UDP and TCP. Still, no dice on playing multiplayer, even on LAN (which is what my 3 other roommates and I are trying to do, LAN games.) Then I tried looking into Avast and SpyBot: S&D, neither were blocking the port. Could my sh*t ISP be blocking the port? That shouldn't effect LAN though according the network training I took in high school. (Who know's, my teacher was 80 years old and on multiple prescription drugs.)

Any help would be appreciated.

Side info: Port Test says 2100 is blocked. Trying to ping a computer through port 2100 on the LAN works, gets a nice 15-20ms ping. (There are 16 other wifi networks near my apartment.)

LAN: assuming port 2100 on firewall/router is open, and you are actually hosting the game, and not on the setup screen, then your friends should be able to connect via your internal LAN IP. (192.168.x.x or whatever).
WAN: assuming port 2100 on firewall/router is open, and you are actually hosting the game, and not on the setup screen, then it would seem your router (or firewall) isn't playing nice if you told it to leave that port open.

You also should have logs telling you what the issue is.

It is possible the local machine is also running a firewall.

It's not "allow" but rather "forward" on the router, right? Forward to a specific ip in the local net beyond him, unless you have upnp. Does your isp provide an externally visible ip address anyway, static or dynamic?

Need more details.
What modem, what OS, what firewall, and so on.

I use a ADSL modem(model ZX DSL 381 II), windows firewall, and automatic IP
