Starcraft: "Unable to join game"

Postby chris42 » Wed Jul 12, 2006 1:31 pm

Hi!

I've been trying to set GIT up so that I can play Starcraft in UDP broadcast mode over the Internet with a friend. We are both behind NAT routers with port forwarding on port 213 enabled. I'm using the Windows network bridge to be able to use GIT with my Centrino wireless adapter which doesn't support promiscuous mode.
Now after countless hours we managed to establish a UDP tunnel with GIT so that we can see each other's game servers in the lobby, but when trying to connect, we keep getting the message "Unable to join game". This is how my current setup looks like (my buddy's looks quite similar):

I've tried just about everything to get this working... ideas, anyone?

Regards,
chris

Ok figured it out myself now. Had to enable port forwarding at the router on port 6111 for Unicast packets and use the "Alter Source IP (for NAT)" option. Unfortunatly, there are considerable lags now when playing SC, making it barely playable ... don't know if that's GIT's or the network connection's fault.
