this work, but you might have other issue and you better fix that". telling "don't work!" will not fix your problems, check you firewall, router and other things that are required to use this tool!

do i need specify ip on the client and server pc, or only client?

how does it work behind KIS 2010?

love2spooge said...

only client.
If KIS have own firewall then no, you need to unblock ports 6110, 6112 and battle.lan.

maybe this will help http://lancraft.blogspot.com/2009/02/setting-up-firewall-in-windows-7vista.html

hi!
I have a problem. The Runs as admin checkbox is disabled.
What can I do then?

thx!

Ákos said...

ok.
I turned on UAC, so I have an enabled checkbox, so I checked Run as admin, but it still disappears, when I click start.

love2spooge said...

are you standard user or administrator?
and turn off UAC and firewall...

guys... for run as admin... just simply right clic and pres second button from up.. you dont need to change setting or something :)

Ákos said...

I'm an admin.
I turned on UAC, because it's turned on otherwise, and I read somewhere, that I can enable the checkbox mentioned above.
Conclusion: UAC doesn't affect the Battlelan run problem.

Sry!
I turned on UAC, because it's turned off otherwise...
...and my firewall is turned off all the time.

love2spooge said...

I don't know how to help you, this should work.

Turn off UAC and try again.

Maybe your antivirus is somehave messing whit battle.net...

if nothing help try lancraft, yawle or wc3proxy.
