Yea, well I turned the wall off and it didn't work. It wasn't until I disabled to program completely that it worked.

Now you are exposed!

Ideally you just want to open port 27960. That's what I did.

Problem is, you guys are using software firewalls, which are crap. They let too much get in and not enough go out. Hardware firewalls keep everything from coming in and let everything go out. The firewall allows things in that are requested by the computer, and nothing else. It completely hides our entire network from the outside.

That would be more useful. I've had my firewall off ever since I played today but someone just logged on tomy computer and did something, though I'm not sure what. Wha?
