    Does the game have three green bars and does it have server rights for the Trusted and Internet Zones? Are the ports opened in the router? Are there any specific ports to be opened in the Custom of the Internet Security Zone?

    TCP Ports 33335 and 33336 also the UDP Ports 33334. You could just use the range of 33334-33336 both TCP&UDP instead. These are the ports required for Empire Earth game.

    The router would have an arrangement of something like this>

    http://www.portforward.com/english/r...pire_Earth.htm

    Plus your router's manufacture often has info on "port forwarding" and it should be in the router info guide or manual. The manual is usually available on line and often the router manufacture has some forum for help.


    In the ZA, besides allowing server rights to the zones to enable open ports, do this>

    FireWall > Main > Custom of the Internet Security Zone > in the dropdown of the Internet Security use the ingoing and outgoing for both the TCP and for the UDP entries > enter the port or port range and then Apply and OK. Then your are good to go as far as the ZA is involved.

    is a forum for Linksys router users. I would advise that once the game is shut off, that the forwarded ports be closed once again. This will return your security and also please close the ports in the ZA as well.

    The forum is>

    Open ports do present a security risk, but the ZA should be working hard to provide internet security for you. I would suggest that if you are hesitant about the security risks, then do some research first before attemtpting this.

    signin and ask a few questions and get the answers you want from other gamers. Their answers have lots of advise and experience.
