Hosting problems

Hi guys ..

.. I recently opened ports 6112 - 6119 TCP & UDP in router, and allowed Warcraft III through my firewall ..
.. Then I was able to host ! :thup: .. BUT .. everytime I host, my connection to B.Net is lost, after playing a map for like 10-30 minutes :banghead:

.. Anyone know what to do with this problem ?

Well I followed everyone's instructions on the Expections tab on Firewall(Opening Port 6112-6119 on TCP AND UDP), Adding Warcraft 3 and Frozen Throne on Exceptions and yet I still can NOT host. No, I'm not using a Router, I'm using a modem directly connect to my PC. When I hosted after doing all this, people could not join.

Is it just my PC? or do I need to do anything more

Have you got any other firewalls which may be blocking port 6112-6119?

If your modem connects to more than one computer make sure that the ports are forwarded for the correct computer.

Unable to conect to bn

Hi guys,
I have a 'on-the-go' modem and a connection to vodafone up to 7,8 Mbps.
when i 'm trying to connect to bn the following message appears:

''There was an error writing to your hard drive while trying to download a file from bn. You may need to free up some space. Check your hard drive and try again."

Obviously i tried but i have more than 70 GB free... Plz help me out.

I also have my hard drive seperated in 4 parts. One of those has no free space. It is for HP tools for my HP laptop.
Yeah i forgot that i'm trying to connect from a laptop if that helps.

Plz help.. Thanks !!

    After landing, I got news that a big earthquake struck. Since I'm only there in Taiwan for a week, I figured the best option I have is to make sure my family is safe, and that we are all good to go from there.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    I didn't get any phone service plans because I am mainly visiting my family and staying indoors. Well, the earthquake made me forgot to go get phone service.

    And then a few days later, just north from my family, there was a giant plastic industrial complex that caught on fire, with the blaze burning for 1.5 days.

    There was some air pollution and smog outside.

    We did our Ching Ming Festival indoors with my father's family side, and occassionally traveling down southward to visit some farmlands, and paying a visit to my grandmother and my uncle on my mother's side.

    The whole trip was quite hectic, with occasional afterquakes throughout the week. This whole time, I completely forgot about giving updates on TH. :p Again, sorry for the lack of communications.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    As for Github, I often frequent there, boasting about my genetic algorithm for tools-assisted speedrunning and such. I'm also pretty active on Discord, with my tag @asperatology.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Yeah, the whole earthquake + air pollution combo made me completely forget about bringing updates. I'll be sure to keep on top of things after all things are less requiring my attentions.
