    Red face no internet connection to games?

    Hello again. I have successfully run an ethernet wire to one of my ubuntu machines and kubuntu machines, but whenever i go to play any online game,(cube2 wormux open arena scorched earth) it seems as if the game cannot connect to the internet. I either get server rejected connection (wormux) no servers found (open arena) many servers with incompatible version (scorched earth) or servers that i cannot connect to (sauerbaten).
    can anybody help me? thank you in advance

    How are you connecting to the internet? Do you use a router, or are you directly connecting? If you are using a router it may be blocking access to the the ports the game needs for you to successfully connect.

    Hello, sorry i took so long to get back, I was sick yesterday. When the problem started, I wasnt using a router, but two days ago i put on on so i could hook up more computers. so since the problem happened before the router i dont think it had anything to do with it.

    P.S. just curious, how would you solve it if the router was the problem

    Is this affecting only your games? Do you have a regular connection otherwise?

    First of all, it helps to be patient.

    secondly, what kind of firewall/ip blockers have you got running? what ports do these games need? Have you checked their help files?

    what router do you have?
