FSHost for multipalyer and routers

Recommended Posts

Hi Friends,For several days now I have been attempting to set up a server that can run FSHost to host multiplayer sessions of FS2002. My problem is that the server is running behind a router, which is a necessity since I use WidevieW for solo FS2002 flying. I have educated myself to the best of my ability regarding the world of port handling, and have read the microsoft knowledge base until I'm blue in the face. As best I can tell, I have opened up all of the correct port combinations (2300-2400, 47624) on my router (SMC Barricade 7004ABR). But despite this, I have not been able to successfully conect to FSHost (version 2.2) unless I point directly to the server from behind the firewall.I've had a couple of people try to help me figure this out, and I believe they know what they're doing very well. But we can't get it to work.So here is my question - is there anyone out there that has been able to host a multiplayer session with FSHost while using a router? If so, what is the make and model of your router? At this point I'm willing to try a different brand since I'm beginning to wonder if I'm not looking at a problem specific to my router.
