If you want to play a multiplayer game of Homeworld 2 and you are behind a router, you may need to do one of the following:
a) Disable your router so that your machine is connected directly to the internet.
b) Unblock port 6073 and ports 2302 to 2400 (these are the default DirectPlay ports used by Homeworld 2).
c) Force Homeworld2 to use a given port number by using "-port ####" at the command line, where #### is between 1 and 65535.

If you still encounter difficulty in connecting to GameSpy, please allow traffic for at least the following TCP ports.
6667 (IRC)
80 (HTTP)
27900 (Master Server UDP Heartbeat)
28900 (Master Server List Request)
29900 (GP Connection Manager)
29901 (GP Search Manager)
13139 (Custom UDP Pings)
6500  (incoming, UDP, default roomquery port; can be customized with roomqueryport=<port #> in svc.cfg)

but do i not have to set my pc up as a static ip address on the router?
when i do this i lose internet connection.

i set my network card to be 192.168.1.5 and seubnet the same as router
and set router address as default gateway. am i missing something or am i barking mad...

yep static

To use the DMZ, you must set a static IP address for a DMZ PC and set that PC to use the selected IP address.

Thanks Mik

yep , done that before.

i have a wireless router tho and kids laptops and wifes pc connect by wireless.

do i have to set anyhting up in internet options on ineternet explorer to let me browse internet when i set pc as static
how do i let router know that one address is static and does the def gateway mean the router?

im sorry im not thick or anything just easier for me to set network up this way but now if i need a static address set up for my pc is there anything else i need to do?

Cheers and appreciate all help past present and future.

That depends on the make of router, usually assigning a IP address outside your routers random IP range is enough but, depends on router. Default gateway would be router.

edit: Just google yer routers make and stactic ip and u should find what u need.
