If you've allowed Generals access to the internet in your Firewall that shouldn't be a problem. But if you've got router then you'll need to open some ports - the info is in the Generals readme.

50:50 chance this will work..
stick 2002 into the firewall port override in the options.... there are other ports as well but 2002 norm sorts it out.... most of the time...

Hmm i already enable all the ports in my router for General and did the firewall overide to 2002 but it still doesnt work. Is there any other way to connect to my friend ip without using the direct connect?
