Windows 7: Hosting / Joining lan game

Hosting / Joining lan game

Hi There,

With Windows 7 (rc1) & Windows 7 (build 7600)

I have a real hard time of playing lan games, I cant join games hosted on Vista + Win 7.

No I have disabled the UPnP device host, that made my friends pop-up in Worms Mayhem, Joining the game then failed (concetion lost)

After reading this board I noticed running as admin should help.

Running the game as admin atleast did let him join the game, after hitting start concetion lost.

We have the same problem in Red Alert 3.

When running Hamatchi RA3 works like a charm, without it wont even show the other player

We have disabled the IPv6
IP is manual set (no dhcp)
We are both in the same homegroup.
We have access to the shared drives.
We can play in the internet.

anyone knows a work arround or how to fix this?
Since where planing on running a small lan party this weekend it's kind a urgent.

thanks for the help in advance

Hi and welcome to seven forums

First things first. could you fill in your system specs (lower left corner) so we know what kind of hardware you have. Second coulod you tell us about you lan set up. Im thinking this may be just a connectivity issue with IP-6 support

Thanks for the specs. First thing I would do is to check for IP-6. If you right click networking in sys tray. ope network and sharing>cahnge adapter settings>LAN>networ>uncheck ip-6. reboot and see if prob still exists

Good luck and let us know
