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?

Well.. not that I know of, but I may think you're right, the Ports 6112-6119 are not open.. for some strange reason

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 !!

    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.
