I am hosting a game ( non dedi). But when a friend wants to join he enters the password. But he can't get in. If he presses the ok button after the password the button becomes "unselectable" and after that it lights up again.

Somebody know what the problem is?

Ask him to check the ping. It'll likely be about 5000 if you're hosting it from your PC. I think you can configure the firewall to allow it to work, but it will be laggy.

Yes it's 5000. So i can never host a game that works?
If i set a dedi server it's also 5000. :)
