I and friend live in same city - PF 4.04 stand alones. Broadband. Play on Hyperlobby. Want to play on/with one using in-game multiplay option. Always getting 'timeout'. Don't know much at all technical re computers. Is this an easy fix which our ignorance hides from us, or do we need to get to know all about config files, and dedicated servers to do what looks like should be quite simple? http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/blush.gif

I had this problem recently too. Turn off your XP firewall and leave all your firewalling to your hardware router.

This may or may not help.

Whichever one of you is hosting, if behind a router, must forward port 21000 for the game to connect:

Thanks fellas. We'll have another spin, and be back here with the details when we've done so.
