- Hi, me and some members of RSA Clan are trying to switch from Hamachi to Gameranger. But 3 of them got 3 different problems.
1) "X" can join games, but he can't host. When he start, the other members got the message "waiting for Host" and nothing happens, the game doesn't launch. He has firewalls disactivated.
2) "Y" has the "firewall problem" but he has firewall disactivated. When he try to join or be Host, the a "firewall problem" window appear. He opened ports and nothing happen. He has disactivated the firewalls, opened the ports and has Windows 7
I think it's a firewall problem (firewall is blocking incoming connexions but allows outgoing one ... it's classical)
Sometimes it's better to let the firewall activated and create exceptions for aom, aomx and gameranger.
Another point : Lower internet explorer security level.
In router, sometimes you forward ports correctely... but in fact, port are not really forwarded, it's a bug or a restriction... And, the only way to fix it is to switch you router to bridge mode (but you'll be able to connect just 1 computer, no more phone or wifi...).
The popup (nat restrited...) doesn't prevent to join or host but, sometimes, some players will be in "Italic" and you won't be able to play with them.
The very important point is to get the public IP when you host a game... as you can see in this tutorial

This is the most difficult problem...
Because I don't know if it's a problem between aom and gameranger or a firewall blocking communications or somethings else...
So I suggest this person to follow the same above tips to fix a potential problem with his firewall.
But also uninstall aom and gameranger.
Then reboot, disable all anti-virus, anti-spyware and firewall and reinstall first aom, and then gameranger.
PS : you can download AOM Gold ever patched from the tutorial website.
I got Windows 7, and I'm gonna check if it works for me.
If you want, I can help you via teamviewer, see you on gameranger (nick : RageNrOx)
