Then:

Block All Incoming Connections should NOT be ticked, or else you can't host.


3. You must have Windows Firewall set to ON.

4. Then press Add Port and select:



a) Port Name - at your own preference


b) Port Number: 6112


c) Port Type: TCP

The next step is doing the same thing, again, but at choice c), select UDP instead of TCP ( you must have both ports forwarded )


You also have to add euroloadder.exe and war3.exe to the program exception list.


Click on Add Program , Find euroloader.exe in your warcraft folder and add it to the exception list.


Click on Add Program , Find war3.exe in your warcraft folder and add it to the exception list.


Now, you're ready to host games on Eurobattle.net! Good luck!
