Perhaps you should try a proper help request before complaining that people don't want to help.

I've seen a single post on the tech help forum (which is for tech help with the board not the engine and it doesn't even make clear what the problem is.

I'm assuming that the problem is Freespace2 not Beyond The Red Line, right? What firewalls do you have? Both hardware and software.

all I saw was 'other' as the category not 'other stuff about the forum' might have been helpful if someone atleast said it was the wrong forum.

and both me and my friend are running standard windows firewall, and the firewall for my router is turned off as far as I know. And yes the ports are forwarded.


Edit: and were using FS2open

Pretty much no one reads that forum except for the admin staff. Which is why no one replied till I came along since I'm usually the first admin to check this place in the mornings.

Hmmmmm. Well Windows firewall won't be blocking outbound connections unless you're on Vista (IIRC it does on Vista but it certainly doesn't on XP).

I think the best option is to give me a time when you're going to be playing so that I can check for myself what's going on.
