Hi!

Depending on your router, you should forward the ports, as detailed here:

That should let you host!

Good Luck!

Can you use cheats on multiplayer?


You can, but if you get caught you can say goodbye to playing online in a multiplayer environment forever. They will black list your machine and copy of the game.

I want to know how to forword port. I use D-link DWA-125 Wireless Adapter. I want to create DOTA(being a host). How can I do it?


Hi,
If playing DOTA is the reason why you want to forward a port from your dlink router, I don't think that it is going to be necessary.
To be able to HOST a game in dota, you need to either be in a network or in a virtual private network.
LOCAL HOSTING - this means that you are hosting a game to PCs connected to your LAN under the same router. All you need to do is go to Local Area Connection in Warcraft TFT then create the game you want to host. If your friends is not able to see your game, make sure that your windows firewall has Warcraft TFT in its exceptions. Or you can turn off windows firewall as a workaround each time you play DOTA.
VPN HOSTING - this means you must have a specific software to use to host your DOTA game so friends can connect to you even if they are not under the same LAN or router. Best example of a software to use is GARENA. Garena is a vpn software that allows you to connect to players around the globe. You need to register a username and password to use garena. Download and install Garena to your computer. Login using your username and password to use garena. Once logged in, choose the room you want to host your game for. Choose the one under your current location (e.g. Choose Singapore if you are in Singapore). When you connect to the room, click Start Game to start your warcraft. You can HOST dota games by going to Local Area network in Warcraft TFT and create your game with a valid dota map. Same in LAN, you need to put Garena on the exception list of your firewall for people to see your hosted game.

Hope this helps.

My battle chest only came with starcraft disc one and the brood was expansion. What is disc 2?


In the new versions of the battle chest, the installer installs both starcraft and brood wars. You only need one cd key, and when it asks for disk two it wants the brood wars disk

If you are using Vista, try to disable your firewall and run program as Administrator. Windows firewall might be preventing the program from loading or installing correctly.

When i host a game on xbox live, The whole games lags up and i get kicked, I never used to have this problem, And i have 10meg BB is this a router problem? When im not the host i can play fine, Usually...


Is your Xbox hard wired or wireless? If its wireless, try changing the broadcast channel (to like 11) your are probably getting interference. If its hard wired, you probably need to forward the port on that IP address for the Xbox

Belkin 54 g wireless router....cant find on the net. need to port forward to host blizzard.net games HELP!


Make sure your private IP address is statically set.  Your public IP address is obtained from your ISP and is what other users will be connecting to.  You can not manipulate your public IP address so if your ISP is running DHCP, it is very possible that your public address is changing.  Also if you are frequently disconnecting your modem, it is possible your ISP is leasing you a new public IP address each time.  So try to keep things as static as possible.  As far as the battle net stuff.

Diablo, Warcraft II Battle.net Edition, and StarCraft: 
Allow port 6112-6119 TCP and UDP out and in
Diablo II: 
Allow port 6112 TCP out and allow established sessions in 
Allow port 4000 TCP out (realm games) 
Allow port 4000 TCP out and in (hosting open games only) 
Warcraft III: 
Allow port 6112 TCP out and allow established sessions in 
Allow port 6112 TCP in (hosting custom games) 
Allow port 6113-6119 TCP out and in (hosting custom games if you've changed the default port in the Options/Gameplay screen) 
If you are still having problems after you open up the required ports, try opening 116(TCP) and 118(TCP). I don't really know if these ports are required or not. 
I have had people tell me that opening up those two ports have helped them connect to battle.net.


Hope that helps.  For manipulating ports in your router I suggest consulting your user manual, or online FAQ.  Save your router config before applying any changes, and always remember, opening up ports subjects you to different types of security threats so be aware that is a risk you are taking.

What game are you trying to host? did you already open the port on your router for others to come in and play? Ask for the port number and try to open it on your router's set up page. call your router manuv\facturer once you already have the port number/ numbers.
