Can anyone help? Just tried to get a head to head going with someone and we couldn't connect at all. I tried hosting, he tried hosting. Same for both of us. Tried the IP address in the dialogue and the Ip address revealed by No joy. Firewalls all disabled. What do I do next, I wonder?

Try disabling any anti-virus programs that are running. These can sometimes prevent comms.

Are either of you connecting to the internet via a proxy?

Are either of you running a LAN and connecting through a router. In which case you will need to program your router to allow the designated machine to receive comms via the designated port.

Thanks Dave. the router thing worked - enabled port forwarding for port 1944. But now we can't open it from a save!!! What's the procedure? I'm host, so I save it and mail the save to Michael? Does he have to put it anywhere special? We did this, but when I start again as host and select the saved game it says 'Michael does not have this saved game'. Are we missing a step? He doesn't have to save at his end too?

Got it going now, somehow. Not sure how.
