Hi I can't launch a pool game (http://www.terragame.com/pool/index_1_sort2.html
)
My home computers connected through broadband ethernet router and seems my computer has one IP and router has another and game cannot find another computer.
I'm sure many people might encounter such a problem, please someone help or point me to some online resources:)

Are you trying to play someone on the internet or another computer on your home network ?

You might need to setup port forwarding on your router to your pc's local IP address. This is so incoming data on a specific port gets sent to the right pc on the network. Unless you setup port forwarding in the router config, data wont be able to get through.
