Back again for round two Lol

No one can join my IP Diablo 2 hosted game.

Per instructions from Vonage Technical support, I have set Port Range 6112 - 6119 and set Ip per my static comcast address.

Did not work...

I have Enabled DMZ , again to my static ip address.

Did not work iter.

My Xp firewall is configured to allow the exe for diablo to have server access.

Any Ideals?

What is your network setup? Which phone adapter? Any other routers or anything?

What do you mean you set the IP per your static comcast address? The IP should be the IP of your PC where you're hosting the server, i.e., on the 192.168.15.x subnet if you are using the default router settings.

Comcast does NOT run static IP addresses. Comcast does change IP's every now and then. I suggest that you set your DHCP to Obtain an IP Automatically. Static may work for a while. but sooner or later your router will come to a halt.

Thank you for your replys...

I am using the Linksys RT31P2 Device Firmware version 1.27.01

The cable is routed via the Comcast RCA modem, to the Linksys which currently has two pcs attached.

As far as the Ip goes, Comcast told me not to set it for static due to occasional changes, Vonage told me to set it to a static Ip and that Comcast was incorrect in saying it should be set for "obtain automatically".

The DMZ setting (under app and gaming) was set to enable and contained my current ip from comcast (which will change any day by the way...).

So that bit of advice from Vonage was incorrect due to Comcast not assigning "static" IP addresses in the first place.

I have also since disabled DMZ for that reason.

So per to Micheals last post, the ip under setup is now set to "obtain automatically".

Regretfully, this has not worked, and my Diablo 2 hosted games cannot be joined by anyone.

I believe the issue may reside in a proper setting of the port range forwarding tab, (port triggering) but I do not know what these settings could be?

Also, as a test, I just removed the Linksys from the loop and connected my pc directly to the comcast modem, and poof, my friends were able to join me in a game.

But this was not the reason I subscribed to Vonage, was it?

Any Ideas?

There's your problem...you don't understand what you're doing, and I don't mean that in a harsh way. But the IP address you enter in the DMZ setting is the IP of the INTERNAL PC you want to have all incoming requests forwarded to. You never should be entering your Comcast-assigned IP address in any of the port forwarding or DMZ fields on your router.

Go to a Command Prompt on your Diablo 2 PC and type "ipconfig". Assuming you have one NIC, look for the line that says "IP Address" and that's the IP address you want to enter into the DMZ field. The 192.168.15 part won't be changeable; all you're entering is the last octet. So I don't see how you could have entered your current IP from Comcast here, but I take you at your word.

Same for port forwarding. The destination IP is the address of your Diablo 2 PC. Pretty simple.

Hope that helps.

Thank you for your reply...

ToddlerTN, as you suggested, I pulled up a command prompt and using the ipconfig command, received the info regarding my ip which I have edited for public display

IP Address ###.###.##.###
Subnet Mask ###.###.###.#
Default Gateway ###.###.##.#

I also opened the status window of my NIC connection (Intel Pro/100 VE) in network connections and under the XP support tab, the EXACT IP address was listed.

I also started the Diablo 2 game and it lists the IP address that it is currently using to host IP based multiplayer games and again, the EXACT IP address was listed.

Under these three reference points, the IP address is EXACTLY the same.

This is the very IP address that I put in and later removed from my Static settings and DMZ settings for the Linksys Modem.

I am aware that I "dont understand what I am doing" in this case, and I have not taken offence to the remark from you. Also, I am also thankful for your assistance and that of others here.

But, I do understand the concept of a static vs changing IP address and it seems that all I have access to is the one from Comcast that does change from time to time.

If there is another location that I can determine my "internal IP" I would like to know because I agree, that number would solve the problem.

Also, in the computer is a 1934 Net adapter and a Intel Pro/100 VE Network connection card which the Linksys is currently plugged into.

Thanks, Smile

Does this blocked out IP start with 192?

Any IP address that starts with 192 is an internal IP address. You didn't need to block it out, there's no way giving it to us would be a security threat.

What IP address are you giving to people who want to connect to your Diablo games?
