this is manual configuration: http://forum.war2.ru/index.php/topic,151.0.html
Easier solution is to install war2combat 4.01 with default port on the 1-st computer and random port on others (2-nd, 3-tr, etc.) That should work also.
Leet them try and let us know if that's working.

Is it the same thing? http://forum.war2.ru/index.php/topic,229.0.html
Or something different?

They CAN play with each other and other people, but simply cannot host. Imo it's nothing with different game ports, they simply dont possess external ip

the issue about 2 ppl sharing internet was that they can't play together, but since that is no issue for them, don't know why this is even mentioned. They can't host for the same reason everyone else. Ports.

How to fix?
DMZ.

Although, dmz can only be enabled to one device ip (computer, tablet, console, etc..) on the modem/router.
But since they are in the same house, thats no issue as they can manage who does the hosting

Also why don't you encourage those 2 to come forth on the forum instead of having an intermediary speak for them, they would learn more if they are proactively looking for their own solution.

Portforward the router using their different internal/local ipaddresses. Port one computer through 6112-6119 and the other 6111-6120. Works because I tested it last week.

I.e 198.00.00.01 6112-6119
198.00.00.05 6111-6120

Exactly, dmz can provide port forwarding for 1 computer only.
That's why they should use single port forwarding for several computers. That's why they have to install war2combat with "random port" option, that will help to use different ports on different computers.
Also they have to forward port1 for comp1 and port2 for comp2 on the router. War2PLoader (included to combat 4.01) will do that for them automatically.

Then they should be:
1. play using the shared internet in one game.
2. host the game from each computer to let others (and another comp from the same shared connection) to join that game.

Also why don't you encourage those 2 to come forth on the forum instead of having an intermediary speak for them, they would learn more if they are proactively looking for their own solution.
Sure, why not to register on forum and ask that themselves? It will take 1 min and will be much more useful to them.

Not he told you its pointless dude. You exposing every port so when you get hacked because of a unpatched system or software then fine let that be a security risk fuck it you have been warned. You just put your whole connection outside of the firewall lol It's known as a passthrough. So instead of a small range of open ports you opened them all. You are just being lazy and making your system vulnerable. Take the few seconds and create the range 6112-6119.
