I'm fairly new to the multiplayer of FreeSpace 2 and I need help on a couple issues. I want to play a LAN game with a friend of mine so we both made accounts on FS2NET, and I opened all the required ports on both computers, but we're lucky to have us both connected at the same time. Usually it's one person who is able to connect to the server and one person who always disconnects. If we both connect we can't see each other in the lobby. At one point we got to see one of our games, when I tried to join it gave me a message that an "identical player" was already in the room.
