Hi, I am currently trying to host an online game of football manager 2006, and cannot find out which port is required, as when I receive an IP address, the other parties cannot connect, have been told this requires port forwarding, but am struggling to find out how as the Dlink DE 89-TC router we are using is drawing blanks on the portforwarding web page...any help is GREATLY appreciated :help:

Start your program and get a connection to the server then:

- Use task manager to find the Process ID (PID) of the program
- Open a command prompt and type "netstat -a"
- Find the port listed for the PID of the game

Minor correction to above, use "netstat -ao" to get the PID's

I know this is a bit off topic but would you consider selling football manager 2006 to me and how much?
