How to set up PXO multiplayer

<< < (4/4)

Glad it worked!

To your questions...

1) Nope, just let auto port forwarding do it's thing. There are circumstances where using UPnP isn't wanted: buggy router, security concerns, etc. In that case you would want to disable UPnP and do it manually. But in general you would want it automatic so that you don't have to figure out what to forward to where, such as the case of having multiple computers on your network trying to play on PXO.

2) Yes, that can have an affect on seeing your server. I've had mixed results in such a situation. It can work, but it may not. Might depend a lot on your router as to your success. Your router will know that both computers are on your local network and try to redirect their traffic accordingly. Sometimes that causes things to break.
