ICCup

Hosting the game

You might have issues while trying to host the game. This is caused by automatic blocking of incoming connections and can be fixed with port-forwarding in your router settings. Generally, you need to allow port 6112 for the game. Each router has got a bit different settings interface, but this guide might help you.
