    If your using a firewall on your system, then you may experience problems hosting. Your Warcraft 3 may require an open port inside your firewall in order to communicate with other users.

    So, you want to open one of those ports inside your firewall, you need to add "The Blizzard FAQ" to all the ports, but you would require one per computer. Warcraft will allow you to configure your game port on the OPTIONS menu. Try to set the game port to a number between 6112 and 6119. If you have multiple computers, each computer will require a different port number.

    In order to setup your port forwarding on your router, your computer needs to have a static ip address. You have to set the router in such a way that it should receive a static ip address on it.
