Hello there,

The other computer should unblock the game on the firewall settings,

then they will be able to access to the game server

Control Panel > Firewall

Add the game to the exceptions list

Thanks

flcconflic, your message is irrelevant, linux doesn't have any control panel, the problem may come from your ip configuration.

Some do have a control panel but i doubt that "FireStarter", a popular gui-front-end for the firewall, is in there if ZenWalk Cafe has one. I agree it's possibly worth having a look in the settings. Perhaps try using your "package manager" to look for and install "FireStarter". Perhaps a general search for "firewall" might be better. You may well have the front-end installed anyway so it might be worth hunting around the menu's for it

Good luck and regards from
Tom :)
