I want to play HD2 during a LAN-Party. We can see the game..

...but not join. It endlessly says "creating client / connection server".

I read on the internet that you have to disable "ipv6". We did that, but afterwards we couldnt even see each other in the server browser :(

Any ideas?


Again: With "ipv6" enabled we can see the mission the host created in server browser, but not join. With "ipv6" disabled, we cant even see each other. We are in a LAN, and one of us is hosting (no dedicated server)

Did you open all ports on firewall ? (host computer)

No...UDP and TCP 11001 - 11004, right?

EDIT: I opened the ports, didnt work -_- I literally did every step described here:
Windows Vista / 7 / 8
As you may noticed, no matter if all ports are forwarded and the firewall is not blocking anything HaD2 relevant, server hosting on the Windows versions mentioned above doesn't work.
That's because of the new IPv6 protocol support. Now, however, theres a way you can disable IPv6.
Step 1
Disable the IP Helper service
Hold the Windows key and type R, enter "services.msc" (without quotes) and press Enter
Scroll down to the IP Helper service, right click on it and select Properties
In the dropdown box that says "Automatic" or "Manual", set it to Disabled and then click on "Apply"
Then click on "Stop" to stop the service from running in the current session.
Click OK to exit the dialog
Step 2

Disable certain Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6) components, follow the steps provided in the link below
Disable IPv6

Step 3

Reset the TCP/IP stack. Go to this article and either click on "Fix it for me" or follow the instructions to fix it on your own.

....but to no effect

Best choice for HD2 server is WinXP because its "straight forward" Op system, in WinXP open ports and play :cool:
