1) Network consisits of 1 laptop and 2 pcs. 1 pc acts as an internet gateway with Internet Connection Sharing enabled and sharing internet across the network to the other laptop and PC. I have all that working.
2) I have this MMORPG(Massively Mutliplayer Online RolePlayer game) which i am trying to use on the 2 clients (not the gateway) simultaneaously. In discussion with the game community in order to do so I ave to change the local port of the game client on the client machines which I have done fine.
3) when i try to log on both clients at the same time (even using different local ports) one of them is never able to log on.
4) The problem as I can see it is that the 2 clients may be using 2 different local ports, but that they might still be going out the one port on the gateway, meaning one will never be able to login with the other one already logged in. Assuming my diagnosis is correct is there any way to allow the 2 clients programs to go out 2 different ports on the gateway machine, through port forwarding or what not.
All systems are using windows Xp.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
