My friends and I all got Artemis 2.2. We're running windows 8, Windows 7, MacBook pros running Parallels, and two MacBook pros running PlayOnMac.

We have tried every computer as the server, we've tried two different wireless networks (both of which I have played Artemis on before). Not one single client will connect to the server, in any configuration.

I know this is a really opened-ended question, but what the hell are we doing wrong? I've had it working before on the same network and using parallels, so I know it's possible.

What can we check?

1. Check that your firewall(s) is(are) allowing TCP Port 2010 through.

2. Make sure that your VMs are connected to a network that is either bridged or NATd to the correct real network adapter on your VM host.

Thanks for the reply, I appreciate it. Sadly I don't understand any of it. Thanks though.

I'm assuming you're using the Win8 machine as the server.

Goto the Control Panel -> Windows Firewall and click "Allow an App or Feature through Windows Firewall". Look for "Artemis Bridge Simulator" in the list. If it is there, make sure both of the checkboxes for "Private" and "Public" are checked; if not, click "Change Settings" and check them both and try again. If Artemis is not in the list, click "Allow another App" and locate your installed copy of Artemis. (in "c:\program Files\artemis" or "c:\program files (x86)\artemis" for stand-alone, or in the SteamApps folder ("c:\program files\steam\steamapps\common\artemis\" or "c:\program files (x86)\steam\steamapps\common\artemis\") for the Steam version. Once it's in the list with both boxes checked, try reconnecting.

As to the VMs, I not overly familliar with Parallels, but you'll have to locate the Virtual Machine settings for the two parallels clients, and make sure that the virtual network adapter is connected to the real network in "Shared" or "Bridged Ethernet" mode.

On my home network I can get everything to connect just fine. On my work network I cannot get anything to connect without submitting a request to the network administrators. This is because the port that Artemis needs to run is locked closed.

You may need to contact your network administrator.
