Only 1 PC behind my router can join a FSHost Session?
« on: June 04, 2008, 07:21:54 AM »

Good day!
I have a big problem.
Me and my brother are connected to the internet via router. A friend of mine opened a session and we both wanted to join. But if I am already in the session, my brother cant join anymore and the session doesn`t even gets displayed in my brothers FS04. Ports are opened. Any ideas? ???

Greetings from Berlin

Yes, this is always a problem, when you try to use two PCs on the same network with FS.  The problem is that the ports can only be forwarded from your router to one PC, but the data needs to go to two PCs.  Here's more info in my post from another thread:
