I've recently bought a UMTS surf stick from German ISP and cell phone carrier 1&1. I'd like to host games (Settlers) that require a direct connection to other players via TCP/IP.
I understand that if I were connecting to the internet via router I'd have to forward incoming connections on the appropriate ports directly to the computer that is hosting the game. I'm not familiar enough with my connection here, though, to figure out how to do port forwarding. Other players can't connect to my laptop via my IP (no, firewalls are not the issue).
Anyone got an idea? A 1&1 service representative said that they don't block any ports.
