Router settings?

PostAuthor: Flyinhigh » Wed Feb 29, 2012 9:20 pm

Hey. A Buddy's coming to my house this weekend, and we were looking to both play on Avlis while he's here, but last time we tried, there was something about can't have two computers on the same router without doing some sort of special setting (you can see by my language that I'm really technically challenged here). Can someone guide me through the process of what I need to do such that we can both play over my internet?

Mooches Gracias!

On one of the machines, edit the nwnplayer.ini in the NWN directory. Change the line that says "Client Port=5120" to "Client Port=5121". Basically you want both machines using different ports, otherwise things get very confused.
Also, the number needs to be 5120 or greater due to some brain damage in a crash prevention module we're using.
