[Guide] How to host your own games in Dota/Warcraft !


Recommended Posts


Hello MxC Community.


Well , i searched the Warcraft III Section and i didn't find any guide explaining you how to host your own games.


I think it's usefull since a lot people want to host their own games.



Step One - Connecting to your modem :


We must connect to our modem . So go to Run > cmd > ipconfig > Default Gateway


Someone will ask . What i will do with the Default Gateway?


• Config Firewall

• Config Router

• Config Modem (Sometimes needed)



Step Two - Router :


Now you will go to your internet browser and type in your Default Gateway.


For example:


Once you have entered this into your browser you should either be taken to your router page or prompted for a username/password.


Enter your username and password and login. If you are unsure about the username and password , by default the username and the password are admin.


Now that you are successfully logged into the router you should look for your port forwarding section.


Continue in step three.



Step Three - Opening Ports :


In this case , i didn't know what to post because i don't know what every person has in his modem.


Usually these tabs are :


• Applications & Gaming


• Advanced Settings

• Port Configuration

• Virtual Servers


Now you need to forward any one port to your computer's IP Address


Warcraft III ports : 6112-6119


Apply the changes.



Step Four - Firewall :


Windows XP:


1.Go to Start > Control Panel > Windows Security > Windows Firewall.


2.Go to the Exceptions Tab. Add Port and name it 6112. Make it TCP.


Add again this port ( 6112 ) but make it UDP.


3.Now go to the Advanced Tab. In the Network Connection Settings section click Settings.


Now in the Services Tab you need to Add 2 rules. One will be your IP Address, 6112 in/out and TCP.


The other is same except it will be UDP.


4.Go to the ICMP Tab and Add a check to Allow Incoming Router Requests.


You're done.



Windows Vista:


1.Start > Control Panel > Security > Windows Firewall


2.Click Allow a program through Windows Firewall.


3.Click Add port.


4.In the Name , type Warcraft III


5.In the Port number box , type 6112.


6.Click TCP and UDP.


You're done.



Windows 7:


1. Control Panel > System and Security > Windows Firewall


2. Click on Allow a program of feature through Windows Firewall


3. Click on Change Settings and configure the ports by your own.


4. You can tick/untick any ports you want . Depends on what programs are you using.


5. If your game/port isn't at the list , you can press at ' accept another program ' .


6. Then you can browse your program or add a new port.


You're done.



Since i was an Windows XP user and i am an Windows 7 user , i didn't find it difficult to remember the settings for the firewall.


But i never was an Windows Vista user , that's why i asked a person for some settings.


The guide ends here . Hope it helps the people who want to host their own games.


PS : I didn't add any screenshots , i think that it's easy to understand what i'm saying.

    • The project is no longer for sale. Please lock the topic. Thanks 😊 
    • Hello Dear Friends of Maxchets. I come to announce to you the Faction project that I have been working on for some time and due to some unforeseen circumstances Guys, I ended up pausing and maybe stopping the project. Would you like some information about the project and details on how to get in touch via Discord: crazyrx2564 Acis Project Basis: These Acis are already solid files so decide to create the faction based on more solid files. Is the entire Faction System Ready, are all Faction x Faction events working and which Events do they have so far? CaptureFlag Death March Faction Hero -> Replaces the onlympiad system, as the faction fights to get the hero of each class. the fights too happen between members of different factions. Faction System. the traditional event where you have to capture the territory until the end of time. Strength KillBoss: a faction that deals the most damage earns a reward and secondly another reward, all configurable. Last man TVT. All of the above events have been reworked to work with the faction system. events are radom. With a pause in the project, some changes remained pending. some mods that were in the plans were not added. The EloRank event was halfway through. If you purchase the Project and do not have experience in Java, you will have to hire a Dev to complete, add or correct any errors that may appear. I make it very clear that the Project is 90% to my liking, what is missing are my ideas that have no impact whatsoever on opening a server. the project also comes with a very complete Skin Pack. It also has a Balnce Faction system, to balance the number of players from each faction to your liking. The Project also has several other mods that can be used. Start NFT bang toppvp reward. etc. It's a very complete project, but it's up to you to use, add, or change it. but they are files that are completely ready to be configured to your liking and open a server faction.
