    Trouble connecting through Hamachi.

    Right, well, my two friends and I are trying to play through the Half-Life 1 campaign through Hamachi but we are hitting a snag.

    I've done all the proper configuration and such (such as the peer advanced stuff), but only one of the two friends are able to connect and see my game.

    What's the problem because my other friend can connect fine.

    Edit: I tried adding "+ip *hamachiIP*" to the launch options and it seems to work fine, but the server just shuts off at random times.

    Can the person who can't connect to you connect to the other person?

    I'm not sure actually never tried, but I'll try when they both get on.

    Also, he actually made a game yesterday and I could connect fine and everything. I guess we could do that, but I just find it strange how others can connect to me, but he can't.

    Why not just forward your ports? Even if they don't forward theirs, they will still be able to connect to you. Unless it's a pirate version (honestly, 10USD is a great price for 300+ games, and by that I mean mods)

    I've port forwarded many times for many different games/programs, it just never works for me... My ISP is kind of screwy...

    Also it's not a pirated version. Valve is probably the only company whose games I'd never pirate :P
