Can't be a server for online gaming...(champman)

I have a 4 port linksys broadband router, XP pro and the Championship manager 01/02 game.

Each time I set the game up for network play, nobody can get in via the internet.

I have tried enabling 'DMZ' and disabling 'Block WAN Request', but to know avail.

1. Does anyone know the correct ports to forward?
2. Is there something I need to disable/enable?

I was searching the net for ports and I got port 6667 recommended, but that did not seem to work.

The game uses my local IP address instead of the internet one, even after port forwarding and disabling Wan pinging. I have given all my pc's their own IP's, so no automatic carry on.

Any further thoughts?

Cheers...I'm starting to get somewhere. I'll keep this open for a few more days to see how things go.

Thanks for your effort and time.
