I hate to have to do this, but I've been searching the internet for hours without results. A friend and I are trying to play against each other on Halo: Combat Evolved for PC, yet we can't connect through the direct IP system. I keep checking that the IP he provided was correct, the server password was correct. Yet all I get is "Unable to connect to server" same thing goes for when he tries to connect a game I started. We've checked everything. We have the same version, (1.07) and so on. And we can join other games without problem. we can't even find the game eaither one of us creates in the available games list... If anyone knows how to solve this, I'll really appreciate this. I've tried finding the solution on my own, but I can't find squat that's of any help.
