TCP/IP

TCP/IP Hosting with a Router

If you host a TCP/IP game with a router, you need to open port 4000 (Port Forwarding). Please see the manual of your router for details. You can use Hamachi (see below) instead of configuring your router.

Getting Your External IP Address

D2 can't display the correct external IP address in the game when you use a router. 192.168.xxx.xxx is the internal IP address and can't be used for multiplay. You can see your external IP address at http://www.whatismyip.com

Cautions for TCP/IP Play

  • All players must use the same version of ES and the same settings of PlugY.
    (The version of LoD in D2 folder doesn't matter.)
  • Installing another version of PlugY by yourself causes troubles in TCP/IP games.
  • Enabling /nopickup option may cause troubles in TCP/IP games.
  • Don't access the shared stash in TCP/IP games. Never, especially if you aren't the host.
  • A huge shared stash is reported to cause crashes in TCP/IP games. Stash Switcher utility is handy to swap your stash with an empty one.
  • Mac Compatible patch is required for Windows users to play with Mac users.
  • Be wary of handouts from other players, most of the time it is out of good will, but occasionally you could end up with hacked equipment, which takes legitimacy and fun out of the game for all.
 

Hamachi

What is Hamachi?

Hamachi is a Virtual Personal Networking application and the beta version is distributed as a freeware.

What is the merit of using Hamachi?

  1. You can host a TCP/IP game without configuring your router for port forwarding.
  2. You can join another guy's private network to find the players to play with.

The former would be useful, even if you play only with your friends. The latter works like the channels of Battle Net. You can talk to, and invite to play with, the online members (and can be invited).

How to use

  1. Visit http://www.hamachi.cc and download the Hamachi program
  2. Create a username and password so that you may connect
  3. Enter the server name, and the password for the server
  4. Click on the power button (bottom left-hand corner)
  5. Online players are indicated with a green circle, right click and click on send message to contact them
  6. To easily get the IP of any player, right click their name and click on copy address. This copies the IP address so you can paste(ctrl+v) it into the IP slot on ES.
  7. Enjoy ;)

ES Hamachi Servers

Here "server" means the private network hosted by volunteer members of ES forum.
Please feel free to add your server to the list.

Please add the location of the host as possible, so that players can find the server of the nearest timezone.

If you know many people play ES in your country, it would make sense to make a dedicated server for that country to communicate with the local language.
