Hallo,

I was using a P4@1,8GHz-768MB Rdram-Win2KSP4 system on an Intel Mboard, ADSL 384/128 connection on a Router properly NAT configured on ports 21000 TCP+UDP and was able to host a 6x6 game on PF.
I then changed my config to P4@3,2GHz-1GB DDR400-WinXP Professional on Asus P5P800 Mboard. My connection remains the same -ADSL 384/128- and my router is still properly NAT configured on ports 21000 TCP+UDP.
My huge problem is that now , I am unable to host and I cannot understand why... During my hosting attemps both firewalls (McAfee and Windows) are turned off, security is set to lowest level on Windows , even guest account is enabled and of course ports 21000 TCP+UDP remain open on my router ... Even on these security settings where dozens of persons could access my pc simultaneously using the simplest hacking tools http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif I find myself still not able to host. Tried WinXP on following states : No Service Pack , SP1 , SP2 but no change ... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/35.gif All my hosting attempts are made through HyperLobby
Any help would be highly appreciated ...

If you network adapter is built on to the new mother board it may have been assign a different internal ip from you last configuration.Check you router to make sure that no only is the port open but that it is forwarded to the correct internal ip of your machine.

Also you might also run the standalone il2setup program that is in the main pf folder.Check under the network tab.If there is a drop down window for ip addresses make sure the correct one(external ) is selected.
