Hey guys, I was wondering if this is possible? While a massive feat, I think it should be doable. So I have looked through the forums and found a few answers related to Port Forwarding. I downloaded the Port Forwarding Wizard and tried it, but to no avail.

Next, I tried the Firebind thingy and it came up with these results:

TCP ports 80,443 are open on your network. Firebind was successfully able to transmit and receive data over these ports using TCP.

TCP ports 2099,5222-5223,8393-8400 failed due to a HANDSHAKE_CONNECTION_TIME_OUT condition.

UDP ports 5000-5500 failed due to a PAYLOAD_TIMED_OUT_ON_RECV condition.

I'm not sure what this means, but it sounds like bad news.

Another solution I heard of was just buying a VPN. Will this solve my problems? I tried the OpenVPN trial, but I am still unable to log into the game.

Anyway, if anyone has any idea how I could possibly do this, please tell me.

Thanks very much!
