I have recently set up a network including the main desktop and a laptop.

The problem is internet access is fine on both machines however I can't connect to the online multiplayer option on one of my games. I get a message 'failed to connect'.

I'm guessing that it has something to do with the firewall but I just don't have a clue.

I'm completely new to this kind of thing so excuse my ignorance.

Tell us something about your network, your systems, your game and your firewall and maybe we can help. :thumbsup:

Temporarly disable your firewall and then try the game, if you still get the error message that means it is not your firewall.
