can you get a screenshot of your ports?

Quote:
S tatic addressing
Since your original Dynamic (DHCP) addressing scheme has kept you from
connecting to MW4, (among many other programs) you will want to change to Static
addressing. How it works simplified – You choose an address for your computer & tell the
router what that address is. When your computer is turned on it always has the same
address. Now you will be able to open the “ports” needed for 2 way negotiations and
communications to each individual computer as needed for many games and programs.
The information here > http://www.homenethelp.com/web/howto/static-ipa
ddress.asp will help you change over to the internal STATIC addressing scheme.
If you plan on having 2 or more computers in your home running the same games or
programs at the same time, you will need to configure each computer as detailed in
the how-to and give each one its own unique static IP address.
Note! Choose addresses above the 100 range for your computer(s).
Example > Computer A = 192.168.1.120 Computer B = 192.168.1.125 Computer C =
192.168.1.130 and so on.
After you have setup static addressing on your router and computer(s), you
will need to re-boot the router first and then the computers. Having re-booted your
r outer/computer(s), you should check and make sure they all connect to the Internet.
I suggest you write each computer(s) STATIC address on a small sticker and stick it
to the case. It will assure quick ease of access to the computers address.
Single computer & router setup for on-line MechWarrior4
Ports
P orts:
MW4 requires (like many other programs) ports to be opened in your router
f or communication flow to and from the Internet to your computer.
Ports must be opened in your routers port forwarding configuration page, and they
must be forwarded (opened to) the address of the computer you wish to play on.
One of the best links for port forwarding is here > http://portforward.com/ Do
not use the listed ports for MechWarrior 4 at that site. Use only the ports below.
If you do a search on the Internet on How to Port forward (your router name), you will
probably hit the jackpot and have the exact router adjustment procedure for your router.
The following is the list of ports that will need to be opened in your router to
your computers network address to facilitate the required 2-way communication.

i nstalled on the computers that are used by all players who participate in the game.
• The following TCP and UDP ports must be open on the firewall or proxy server:
****Using DirectX 7 or an earlier version (MW4 is DX7)****
Choose 1 Only
Ports for Host configuration (Server)
Initial TCP Connection 47624 Outbound 47624 Inbound
Subsequent TCP Inbound 2300-2400 2300-2400
Subsequent TCP Outbound 2300-2400 2300-2400
Subsequent UDP Inbound 2300-2400 2300-2400
Subsequent UDP Outbound 2300-2400 2300-2400
OR
Ports for Client configuration only (Gamer)
Subsequent TCP Inbound 2300-2400 2300-2400
Subsequent TCP Outbound 2300-2400 2300-2400
Subsequent UDP Inbound 2300-2400 2300-2400
Subsequent UDP Outbound 2300-2400 2300-2400
Note! You CANNOT have the server port 47624 open to more than (1) computer.
You can play on a server-configured machine.

Ok, first make your pc have a static ip address. This will be the first part... get ready for some manual labor..

Go to Local Network


(if using windows 7 then its > Control Panel\Network and Internet\Network and Sharing Center)

local network settings.
Network settings => your LAN or WLAN connection / right click = properties => TCP/IP / right click = properties =>
Fill in the entries:
fix IP: 192.168.1.100 (IT CAN BE .101 OR .10X)
subnet mask: 255.255.255.0
standard gateway: [your router's IP]
DNS server: [your router's IP] (usually "192.168.1.1")

Looks like this:

Then go into your router and find add ports

Ports for Client configuration only (Gamer)

The following TCP ports must be open:
27999, 28805, 28806, 28807, 28808
47624 Inbound
2300-2400 Inbound


The following UDP port must be open:
28800


Subsequent TCP Inbound 2300-2400 2300-2400
Subsequent TCP Outbound 2300-2400 2300-2400
Subsequent UDP Inbound 2300-2400 2300-2400
Subsequent UDP Outbound 2300-2400 2300-2400


As long as you make it look something like that you'll get it up and running.
IF your router asks what is the IP Address of your pc then use the ip address you set up as mentioned above.





Me guessing>

User Image

Name> MW4
Private IP> 192.168.1.1? (your routers ip in the address bar?)
Protocol Type> (You might just set it to BOTH but if you have the room do them each)
Private Port> EACH!! Quote:
TCP
27999, 28805, 28806, 28807, 28808(BOTH)
47624 Inbound TCP
2300-2400 BOTH

UDP port must be open:
28800
Schedule> Always

SAVE. Keep doing that and cross your fingers...

*whew, Hadn't done this in a while... Guys? Did I get all that right?

PS. If you need the room you can probably sum 5 rules into one. Quote:
27999-28808 BOTH Then 2300-2400BOTH then 47624 TCP
Then you can just have 3 rules... but I'm not sure this is a great idea but you could probably get by with it.

@Cannonfodder: I have this D-Link DL-604 router too, so I guess I can give you the info you need:

1) generally check this: http://mw4frost.mw.funpic.de/router_en.html

2) in detail:

- Make sure you assigned your gaming pc a static lan ip, as Jack described above. (s.th. like 192.168.0.5).

- make sure UPNP on router is disabled, otherwise port forwarding won't work properly.

- you only need the port range 2300-2400 tcp/udp (both) for gaming pc, nothing else. Additional ports are required if you want to run a MW4 server, you don't need them for simply playing the game on multiplayer.

Instructions:

- Open router menu via web broser. Go to "Virtual Server". Create a new rule and set it to "enabled":

Name: MW4
Private IP: Must be your gaming pc's static lan ip, s.th. like 192.168.0.5
Protocol Type: Both
Private Port: 2300-2400
Public Port: 2300-2400
Schedule: Always

Save this and restart device - ready!

Hope that helps
