router + modem prob in the msn gaming zone

Hi ppl,

I need some advice as to how to configure my router to play Gunship in the msn gaming zone via directplay. I have no trouble playing online games elsewhere (quakworld, cs, tf, df2 and even backgammon which is also on msn gaming zone! - which msn host the game, not the players themselves unlike in Gunship). Is it to do with NAT rules? or Ip Filtering? DMZ?

Somebody save me from insanity here!

Best asking msn gaming zone which ports and protocal for each game. Then check your routers manual for Port Rules settings or Port Forwarding

I've asked them and they don't know as its not a game hosted on their msn gaming zone. Its a player in a room that hosts and launches the game, however I do know that the game uses directx 7, and i have directx 8 installed. So I know from this which ports it uses, but I've tried forwarding these ports and it doesn't seem to work.

I have firewalls turned off, the game is patched to work correctly and works fine even with games hosted by the msn gaming zone, and other games i play online elsewhere.

If anybody knows or can suggest anything plzzzz reply and save me from this ongoing headache. lol
