How to connect to the server using the version of Warcraft II

Step 1
    Make sure your game is not running, download the war2ru_gateway.bat and run it.

Step 2
    Start your game, click on "Multi Player Game" -> "Enhanced".

    Now "Select Connection Method" -> "".

    Choose gateway "Ru: War2 Server" and click "Connect".

Optional Extras

Download HolePunch patch
    By default you will need to forward port 6112 UDP in your router to be able to host games.
    If you don't know how to do that then you can also download the hole punch patch here instead.

Download Warcraft II Config program
    If your install isn't working or there are graphical glitches then download the Warcraft II Config program here.
    Start Warcraft II Config.exe and change your renderer until you found one that's working for you, usually GDI works fine.
    You can enable windowed mode via the config program or by pressing Alt+Enter while the game is running. A right-click will lock the cursor to the window in windowed mode.
