So like i got GTA2 working online once. I know networking skills so telling to forward ports wont help. My firiend has his all set up to. We had it working one day but now every time we try to play this happens.

 

I Host

He searches for game (in default server browser)

He Finds My Game

He Clicks Join

His GTA Server Browser Lags

My Hosted Game Lags (but the network is off the wall he is connecting but it wont let him)

We both force quit GTA2 frustrated.

 

We both had all Firewalls Turned off and we still couldent fix it.

 

Here is my network:

Any Ideas?

We have tryed connecting form different computers / setups nothing works but when we play LAN. Even Hamachi does the same thing.

 

Please help.

one word. HAMACHI! its just a hellovalot easier to connect and stuff with friends and i think it might help keep ping rates down.

if you have a router you must open port range 2300-2400 tcp/udp and port 47624 tcp/udp

remember that you must use ip public on gta2, not ip address!

you can found ip public on www.ipchicken.com

 

DON'T use dynamic IP! you must use static ip.

I said we tried Hamachi, it had the same effect on two different pc's. Game is visible but craps out during joining.

Try disabling UPnP since it tries to forward port 47624 to a .255 broadcast address and not all routers support that, so the data is just dropped.

 

If your game shows up in the list when someone else tries to join but then their client appears to stall when they click join, then it means you have some ports open but not all.

Ok, I was looking into the port forwarding on my DSS-5+ There is no firmware for it (at all). It just functions as a power bar for ethernet it is a non blocking hub. And it isnt the DSS-5+ thats blocking it becuase I can host other games on it.
