3 months ago, I have dusted off my Starcraft BattleChest casing.


Trying to play Starcraft 1 for the first time in many years.  However now UDP port 6112 is blocked.


I forwarded the port in my router and otherwise searched for a solution.  Nothing works.  Even stranger, I just noticed that port 6112 is not even blocking in my firewall logs when I open Battle.Net


So the port is opened, else an error would have been logged.



Ultimatelly, I want to run Starcraft on my 2 laptops, a little LAN warfare. Both laptops are running Windows 7, 64bit.

hmm I believe Original StarCraft is not really compatable with the newer operating systems. You will probably have better luck with StarCraft 2. By the way what are the specs of the Laptops if that helps any.

Try running sc in compatibility mode. I would also recommend closing that port, as the port issue is probably on your PC rather than router - the only time you need to open ports on your router is if you are running some sort of server.
