    Angry Warcraft III Frozen Throne 1.21 on lan problem

    hi! i'm just trying to connect my ubuntu pc (Ubuntu 7.04) to my other lan pc (WinXP OS) to play warcraft iii (Dota) so we can play 1 vs. 1 but i'm having hardtime connecting to that pc. even vice versa. i tried to install and configure firestarter in my ubuntu unit and follow the instruction in some post but i can't make it to work up to this moment. could someone here tell me a step by step instruction so we can play it by my friends? i'm really a noob in ubuntu. i can see his network but when i join the game it stuck and nothing happen and vise versa. like when youre having a firewall in windows xp. but xp firewall is off. maybe firewall in my ubuntu is blocking our way.

    in my firestarter i did put
    Allow connections from host : workers <---this is our workgroup

    Allow service: Unknown Port: 6112 For: Everyone

    i just switched this unit to ubuntu a few days ago. when this is in Winxp we can play. But now not anymore. Please help me guys! thanks in advance.

    I believe the problem is caused by an incomplete feature of wine. You should try the deb of wine patched for warcraft if you are not already using it. It is avaliable in my PPA at: https://launchpad.net/~starfall87/+archive or instructions on compiling it at http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=795714
