Can I run Piolet on two LANned computers?

Postby JROD » Mon Jul 11, 2005 4:59 am

I've got one two Pc's that I want to run Piolet on, but can only Port Forward UDP 41170 to one of them...

I have a USR 8054 router. When I set it to open UDP ports 1-41350 for all internal IP's, Piolet won't connect; but when I forward it to one PC, it connects fine. I've tried playing with the router's firewall rules and port triggering, but nothing seems to help.

Can I really only run the program on one PC at a time? :?:

Try setting both installations of Piolet to TCP access only, and choose two different TCP ports, then forward the relevant port to each PC.

I'm not actualy sure how to set it for TCP...I thought it only uses UDP. I'm using ver. 1.05, and the only time it seems to work is when I open UDP 41170 on the router, and then I can only forward it to one internal IP address. If I allow more than one internal address to access 41170, it doesn't connect. Piolet installation doesn't seem able to compromise on the ports available...

1.05 is now years old, you're far better using the beta version:

If you use version 1.83 (I'm not sure about 1.05), you should have connection options (under settings) which look like this:

Just select TCP only, and a unique port for each machine.
