First, gay is not properly used. Fix this.

Second, I think you have to use a mediatory site, rather than hosting it yourself.

You could test that theory by temporarily shutting off Sygate and seeing if you can connect to your hosting friend. I have done that on occasion when playing Empire Earth.
I would love a game of RTW, but I just got Everquest II and you know how it is when you get a new game.......

You should check your firewall to see if it is blocking the ports used by Rome: Total War, and then configure it to allow those ports through.

What is the EXACT message he gets? Are you using a third-party service to play? If the latter, check their support section, or FAQ for some help.
