G'day Curtis,

Which version of Netrek?  We have several, and they behave differently.

The symptom you report is often encountered when your system is behind a
packet filtering router, such as is used for Network Address

You might be able to fix it by adding

	tryUdp: off

to your Netrek RC file.  But exactly how to do this depends on which
version you are running.

This setting may degrade play though.  An alternate setting that may
help is called "portSwap", which changes the way in which the secondary
communication path is established.

Let us know how you go by writing back to the mailing list.
