  1. So basically, when i host like a game like a cs game or a warcraft 3 game or ventrilo server or anything else etc...

    my friend can't connect to my ip. When he host games and such, i can't connect to him either. the problem is other people can connect to us but just we can't connect to each other so i think its a problem connection between us

    anyone ever experienced this problem?

    btw my ports should be fine cause others can join

    As 'others can join' your hosted games except one buddy, suspect that the IP address
    is blocked on your system OR
    your buddy's ISP is blocking the required port.
