Hi, i need to open a couple ports for farcry..just wondering how i would do that-thanks
Please clarify. What excactly do you mean by opening ports?
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
TCP: 40000 - 42999
FarCry game ports:
Outgoing port 49001/49002
Incoming is client dependant
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!
Turns out i just needed the latest patched..workin good now.
