    for a system directly coupled to the net, you need a service running on your
    system, listening on the desired port.

    for any system behind a router, the router must port forward the specific
    port from the WAN side, to the IP-address of the system with the active listener

    as most LANs use DHCP, port forwarding will need a static ip assignment OR
    a mapping of the MAC to the IP-address to be give via DHCP.

    I am running directly through a modem. You think you could give me a hand on finding this service your talking about..Im not extremely technologically advanced, but i can find my way around of if you tell me what to do. The only info i got from Ubi (farcry maker) is that i need to open these ports

    UBI.com ports:

    TCP: 40000 - 42999
    UDP: 41005

    FarCry game ports:

    Server:

    Outgoing port 49001/49002
    Incoming is client dependant

    Client:

    Ingoing port is 49001/49002
    Outgoing is client dependant (usually set by the OS automatically)

    I would greatly appreciate help because microsoft is making me pay $40 for techsupport to tell me how to do this.

    Ah I get you... I though you were talking about modding your graphics card.

    Ok, now this may not be morally acceptible but when I need a computer problem solved quik smart, I contact an IT professional and tell him you want some information on a computer you may wanna buy. Then, after that, say "Just a quik question" and then outline your problem;) Works well for me!
