Ok here is the deal...I never had problems hosting games before... some info: I use Norton Firewall, I have no router, and have installed all correct drivers. I can host a game just fine and people can enter the room. When I launch however I am the only one who makes it to the next screen. Do I need to open ports and if I do how do I do that in Norton?? Also...XP firewall is disconnected and I have even tried disabling Norton for hosting to no avail.
