1-I'm not currently able to port forward.
2-To play Age of empires 3 online, you need to pay for an account.
I looked on google for about an hour, and I stumbled upon tunggle. I downloaded it, set it up, and we were instantly playing LAN online! It automatically makes virtual ports so people can connect to your LAN. Not only is LAN play more secure, but it means you can play games that never had internet play, only LAN(Alot of the old games).
The best part, is its free. This definetly beats Hamachi. You can even create your own network of friends that you can contact and play games with easily.
Add me and Mario on Tunngle:
Its a great program to play games on!
ALSO! Mario is pregnant. He is positive ^.^
