Hello, I just got warcraft and wanted to play a multiplayer game

can't be seen on the other computer and vice versa.I can play other
games like starcraft , red alert on my network just fine also i tested
the connection through direct x and that too works fine.please help me.
Do you use a firewall? If yes, have you tried it while your firewalls are deactivated (on both computers)? If it works with the deactivated firewall, find out whether the firewall prevents the application from using the network (unlikely) or whether it prevents specific ports from being used.
Without any applications running, start a cmd window. Type "netstat -a" (without the quotes). Now start Warcraft and create a new LAN game (server). Start a second cmd window, type "netstat -a". The new server should now be visible as one or more "LISTENING" entries. If not, Warcraft may not be working properly.
You may also have to create you game in a different way from when you create a game for the internet.

hello! the problem you seem to be having might occur for various reasons...now to help you, i will need some more info from you. The multiplayer is usually found with each game, for example, when u play sports resort, after selecting the game, if more than one controller is plugged in (is connected to the wii via wireless) the game asks you how many players would you want in the game. If this does not happen, one of your controllers might be malfunctioning or the game you are trying to play doesnt have offline multiplayer. Please specify which game you are trying to play. Best regards, DIno
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.
I'm pretty sure the only way to connect two PS3s together for multiplayer is to go online and play over the PlayStation Network. Of course, to do things that way, you'd have to have two copies of the games you're wanting to play--one disc for each console. Most games that are multiplayer can played that way on one console, though. You just need two controllers (or more, depending on the game and how many people you're wanting to have play).
