Thread: battlecom

  1. #1

    Default battlecom

    Anyone know how to get battlecom to work through my linksys router and cable modem? I can get it to work if i plug the pc directly into the modem via the NIC but with the linksys attached it gives me the server not found message.
    I can host a session across my local network (useful as it's in one room )
    I can join in on sessions that others are holding but as i am the only person in my little gang with any bandwidth it's nicer for them if i host battlecom.

    Things i have tried so far:

    I have put the hosting PC in the DMZ section of the router setup ( i can run counterstrike servers no worries)

    I have forwarded every port to the host system


    Ideally i want to host BC and CS on one machine and then join the game from another so i can kill my friends with my 0 ping


    Anyone know?

    Battlecom? Hmmm....M$ Voice over IP software....

    Check this page;

    http://homepage.ntlworld.com/robin.d...er/cmtips.html

    and search for the string "DirectPlay and VoIP issues", read the info and the Microsoft links. There's info there on using one behind a NAT router.

    Basically you have to set up differently according to what version of DirectX you're using.

    Also potentially useful;

    Connecting to the Zone Through a Firewall or Proxy Server

    Another blurb on the same page regarding duplex settings may be helpful;

    "Ethernet link between PC and cable modem: duplex setting"
