    Age of empire 2 lan with vista


    me and my freinds tryed to play lan against eatchother at AoE 3 and it
    worked, but we all had laptops so the game was to good for our
    compiuters. So we decided to play some old games instead so we tryed
    AoE 2. but when we host a lan game we cant find eatchothers
    servers.

    it is no problem with the router so we figured that vista might be the
    problem, annyone know how to fix this problem so we can play?

    AOE2 doesn't do the Firewall registration necessary to host a game
    automatically, so you probably need to do it manually.
