andyhd -> Half-Life Problems Again.... (26.Jul.2002 12:40:00 PM)

Hi Everyone,
Sorry to add another Half-Life problem, but I am having difficulty with this one.
At present only 1 person can join an internet game from our lan though ISA server. If anyone else tries to join they get :

Cannot connect to game server:
Reason: Could not complete connection attempt.

This is really frustrating. Everyone is using legit keys etc. And anyone of them can join if no one else is connected externally at that moment.
I don't know if it has anything to do with allocating a different port to each user is it ?

If anyone can shed any light on this I will be eternally grateful..

I am not sure, since I don't Play Hald life, but I have heard from several games, that is it not possible to connect to a game server multiple times, if you come from the same IP address.
The server routes info back to you and if you have 6 clienst comming from the same IP, things could get messy.
