I have cable internet, and just recently added a new computer and router to share the connection. Game plays fine, but how do I host a local server? My buddy needs an IP # and theat will get him to the modem. The router is a Lynksys with a firewall. The router assigns another IP # to each machine. Naybody have any suggestions?

S! You must disable the firewall to the computer that will be hosting. I have a D-link router that supports two PCs I just open the router software and go to advanced/dmz/enable-disable and click the button disable. That should allow others to connect to your machine. Your router software may be different but basicly that's what you need to do when hosting or playing an "IP Game"

Forward port 21000 to your server machine. No need to take firewall down. Cheers!
