Can't host WC3

Hello Everyone,
I have tried to all of the known fixes to allow you to host i WarCraft III, like port forwarding, opening ports, turning off firewalls, etc. Nothing works. I have done a traceroute and was hoping some one could translate it in to English for me. Well I'll paste it here, Thanks for any help any one can provide!

Recently I switched my ISP from Rogers to Aliant. My hosting stopped working. D:

So, I go through my router, set the right ports, check my firewall, the exceptions are in good order. I find out while I'm doing all this that my computer had accidentally been hooking to the internet without the router for a little while, so I don't think my problem lies there.

Sadly, nothing seems to work. Is there something I'm missing? Again, my router and windows firewall are set up properly, as I've done this process successfully many times in the past.

Yep, I'm using a static IP. I'm totally lost as to what the problem may be.

HI, thanks for the guide, but I have a problem.

I am using 2 routers together for my computer, and when I tried to configure the second one, I cannot access it in my browser because the other one takes precedence. Is there a way to get around this?

Thanks

i am not able to connect to battle.net...whenever i try it always says, "Unable to connect to battle.net. you may be trying to connect to an invalid server. if you are using a modem you may need to manually connect to the internet before connecting to battle.net"


what does that mean??

i still have trouble hosting

i did open all the port, but i still can not host. and you said
"Do you have multiple computers using the same external IP address (LAN)?
You must use ports consecutively to allow this to work.
For example: You have internal IPs of 168.192.1.100 and 168.192.1.101.
The first IP 168.192.1.100 would need port 6112, the next IP 168.192.1.101 would need port 6113. "

i am having more then 6 computer in my family, does it mean i need to allow port on all of them????

also what do you mean by test it? i do not know how to test. the reason i know i can not host is that after i creat a game for 10 mins, no one ever joined....


help help please


thx

yeah you need to open a port for each computer you want to play on, and give it the specific

and Some ISP's dosn't support ports so you might not have one, can you create without a router?? like with dirrect internet from modem/hole in the wall.

this website is a little better for learning how to open ports

yeah you need to open the port for the computer you want to play on.

the link is a free guide you can follow, pick your router then pick Wc3 then it helps you .. no fee's.

and could you create if you made a connection directly from you modem/hole in the wall, into your computer?? without the router?

    they did not winterize any of the plants and they froze
  • The Helper The Helper:
    it is not that power consumption went up it was available capacity went down with power plants freezing
  • Varine Varine:
    What a fucking disaster. Are all of the Texas people okay? I see TH is, are we the only two?
  • Varine Varine:
    How have the other states held up? I just got power back so I have no idea what's going on, we didn't get warning
  • Varine Varine:
    Why the fuck didn't they fix this ten years ago when it happened?
  • Blackveiled Blackveiled:
    I'm in it with you and TH as well. My power has been in and out, and I have a ruptured pipe that I need to fix, shouldn't be too bad to fix myself.
  • Varine Varine:
    I hope you're staying warm! Apparently the supply is coming up so hopefully we can get back to normal power soon, mine has been on for six hours now.
  • M Mulciberxp:
    My power has been off most of the last 2 days. We had a generator installed 3 years ago though, so we're staying warm. Water is another issue...
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Where I live has a pool so we are using that to get water to flush the toilets. We have enough bottled water to drink and brush teeth and stuff but it has been a few days and no shower though....
  • Varine Varine:
    I had some water in gallon jugs, and got our water back on yesterday. We don't seem to have any leaks, but I haven't crawled down there to look yet.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    still no water I cannot remember when I last showered now I know how they felt in the old west lol
  • Varine Varine:
    My poor plants are happy, they aren
  • Varine Varine:
    aren't used to going this long without water or lights or normal heat. I think a couple of them froze, but they look like they'll make it
  • Varine Varine:
    Well one of them is pretty rough but I think it was sick to begin with, that one always had some problems.

  • midnight8 midnight8:
    a positive could come out of this. So many people trapped at home could put a dent in the covid numbers in Texas
  • Varine Varine:
    That dude, Tom Boyd, is really upset about the backlash from his "it's your fault you're freezing" thing because he claims he resigned before saying it, so it wasn't like he said it in his official capacity or anything.
  • jonas jonas:
    Almost as if he was saying "screw you guys, I'm going home"
  • Varine Varine:
    I'm fairly new here still but that seems to be the analogous message by several of our politicians.
