Hello i am new to linux and i am an expert online gamer. I have just installed redhat 6.0 on a new machine and have my 98 machine runnign through it for the internet. I would like to play my Favorite game Total Annihilation but i can't host or join games cause of port problems. But i don't know how to set it up i have this information about direct play to work through a firewall.
Setup for Client Firewall Support Using the DirectPlay Dynamic Range
To join a game through a firewall, the client must be using DirectX 6.0 or
later and communicating with a host using DirectX 6.0 or later. To support
applications using the DirectPlay dynamic range, a firewall administrator
needs to allow an initial outbound TCP connection on port 47624, with
subsequent connections of inbound TCP ports 2300-2400, outbound TCP ports
2300-2400, inbound UDP ports 2300-2400, and outbound UDP ports 2300-2400.
For a chart highlighting these requirements, see the Dynamic Range Port
Example of a Microsoft Proxy Server 2.0 Configuration:
Internet Service Manager, Windows Sockets Proxy service: Service Properties
Add protocol "DirectPlay (client)" under Protocols tab.
47624 TCP Outbound
2300-2400 TCP Inbound
2300-2400 TCP Outbound
2300-2400 UDP Inbound
2300-2400 UDP Outbound
Give appropriate permissions to "DirectPlay (client)" under Permissions tab.
Add to file "mspclnt.ini", which is in the C:\Msp\Clients folder by default.
If anyone could help me and where to start it would be great
