Vanilla Forums has been nominated for a second time in the CMS Critic "Critic's Choice" awards, and we need your vote! Read more here, and then do the thing (please).
Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Alright guys, I'm having an infuriating problem. A mate and I bought a couple of games over Steam specifically for playing together, but apparently the ports are blocked on both our computers, so that we can't create servers just for ourselves. Now, I set up port forwarding in my router. Ports still blocked. Put the computer in DMZ, ports still blocked. Added exceptions to Windows Firewall. Ports still blocked. Disabled Firewall completely, no dice. Cut the router out and connected the computer straight to the cable modem. Still blocked. I'm pulling my hair out here.
Running portquery on the machine and checking if ports are open on 127.0.0.1 with the Windows Firewall off and no other security software installed still reports blocked ports on everything.
