    [​IMG] Hi,

    and friend of mine and I are having a problem:

    We both have IWD and HOW installed, with the 1.42 patch installed (both of us). Now when I create a game via TCP/IP (we are using Hamachi) he gets the message "Cannot connect to game session." right after he typed in the password of the multiplayer game session. I opened port 12975 (for my IP, not the Hamachi one, I hope that is correct). We both have our firewalls turned off.

    Any ideas? We'd appreciate it a lot!

    Thanks!

    I (host) am using Windows XP, my friend is using Vista, if that helps.

    Thanks!

    We got it to work yesterday by opening ports. Today, we wanted to continue playing, but for some reason, it doesn't work anymore. We have no idea why, we both have a static IP, ports are still open, we even set up a DMZ for each other (with the Hamachi IP). What's confusing me is, that it did work, but doesn't anymore.

    We'd appreciate any help a lot!
