    Port Fowarding

    I installed Joint Operations on 8.04 LTS and get a code nwec 15 within the game when I try to Play on line online. I forwaded The ports I need within the router and established a static IP adress using system> admin > network. Is there anything else I need to do in UBUNTU for port forwarding

    Are you running a firewall?

    That doesn't mean you don't have a firewall.

    Things like email and web browsers are automatically setup to be able to get through the firewall. Online play? Not so much.

    Yes running it through wine


    If I unknowingly have a firewall up how can I determine that? I am a total noob here

    You've made sure that your Network Manager has you connecting using that static IP address?

    If so, try using a free, online port-checking tool, such as http://www.canyouseeme.org/

    Personally, I've never gotten Ubuntu to accept a forwarded port. But checking to see if the basic process was done right is the first step, so make sure that:
    • Your router has that correct port forwarded.
    • That port is forwarded for the static IP address you have chosen (i.e. 192.168.1.xxx, xxx being something like 130).
    • You have set the Network Manager to connect to your specific wireless network with that static IP address.
    • Your router accepts static IP addresses in that range that you have specified (some routers will not take more than x number of addresses).
    • You have no firewall software running.

    Networking in WINE is rather... Well, games are a better idea in a real Windows install anyways.

    Re: Port Fowarding

    I tried a few of those port checking sites like you suggested and it seems all the ports I tried to test are blocked including ports like 80,25 110. Is there online tutorial I can walk myself through on this matter?
