Port Forwarding

Post#1 » Sat May 20, 2017 1:55 am

Hello! I'm new here (just connected to google through my DC for the first time tonight :D ).

Sorry, I'm unsure if there's a way to search for topics, so I don't know if this has been posted before.

On to my question: Is it, in any way, possible to play DreamCast games over the internet *without* Port Forwarding?

I only ask as it is more than a little difficult to do with my current modem/router setup.

not really.. if the game requires it you will have to port forward or DMZ the dreamcast in order to play online..
