Hi and Welcome to the forums, What operating system are you running?

There are known issues with Vista run servers, if one of your friends is running XP then let them host.

He is playing deluxe and not hd2 .. so hosting shouldn't make an problem.
Easiest way for you is to install an free VPN http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Virtual_private_network and connect and play over that.
If you don't want to connect over that .. have both of you configured the multiplayer menue to tcp/ip and have one of you entered the ip of the hostplayer?

Might be a problem with this new updated TCP protocol.
Try to get it working with the VPN that should work

Hm maybe your router is realy blocking it. Try to enable the dmz for your server ip.
And oh its even not possible to play in the lan with your computers?

Do you have problems with other games or just H&D2?

I hope you will pardon me for resurrecting a topic that is a bit old, but I have this same problem. Other games run fine.

No worries. H&D Deluxe has issues with hosting a game on Vista and Windows 7, what operating system are you using? It's best to host with Windows XP if you can.
