  1. Hello All!

    I have a small problem with networking, me and my flat mate are networked together through a D-Link DSL-504G ADSL Router, internet works fine on both and we can each see each others shared drives but when we try to play a game between each other eg C&C Generals we cant see each other. We are both runnin Zone Alarm Firewall and i think the router has its own firewall as well. Our connection between each other is dhcp (i think thats right where ip address are assigned for us) not static. Can Anyone shine some light on this for me Please!

    Probably just need to drop your Zonealarm firewall on both machines or just open up the ports used by the game you are going to play and it should work.
