Hey there guys listen up.

I recently just built a new PC and its great but i am having one problem.
when me and my brother try to play Local (LAN) games when i try to host he doesnt pick up my game but when he hosts i can pick up his straight away.

Basically he can host and i can join but i cant host he isnt able to see my game.

Does anyone know what might be causing this?

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Firewall not configured is usually the problem. Sometimes port forwarding on a router can mess things up even though it should only apply to incoming internet packets.
