Having a problem hosting

Recommended Posts

For some reason I can't host a game. I'm doing everything right (according to several people) and my firewall is turned off. When I attempt to host a game, my opponents cannot see them. The ports are correct and the rom is confirmed to be correct as well.

A little help will be much appreciated!

I'll try to catch you online to help out. Some initial thoughts....

When you turned off your firewall, did you restart hamachi/GENS?

Can people ping you on hamachi (double click name)

Does your router have a firewall too?

Sometimes you may be pressing enter instead of clicking the "Host" button and then it makes you connect to the IP you connected to last. It happened to me once, I kept pressing enter under the host tab instead of clicking host.

Got it fixed. In my firewall settings only half of the GENS application functions were checked as "allowed". I manually set the firewall to allow the rest of them as well and it worked like a charm.

Thanks Raph for your help last night on this issue.
