We seem to be having a bit of trouble here at Linnia Chants house (this is Elvin). They have 2 cds, 2 cd keys, and one routers with one modem. Now we can't seem to get both of these 2 computers on the same server (havent tried 2 diffrents Dyso servers) at the same time. Sure we can get in and everything, but the second connecting computer halts the first and suspends them in perminate lagg.. and vise versa...

Any help would be great!

Thank in advance

Hi Pyrosmurfs -
You need to change the Client Port=5120 value in ONE of your nwnplayer.ini files, (either computer is OK). The way to do it is something like this procedure:

1. Shut down all running programs, especially Neverwinter Nights.
2. Open Windows Explorer.
3. Navigate to the NWN directory where Neverwinter Nights is installed. Default install directory is C:\NeverwinterNights\NWN
4. Find the nwnplayer.ini file.
5. Make a backup copy of the nwnplayer.ini file and put it in a safe place.
6. Open the nwnplayer.ini file in the NWN directory with a text editor, (Notepad, Wordpad).
7. Find the entry that says: Client Port=5120 (This is the default entry on install).
8. Edit the value to be a LOWER value than 5120. (For Example: make it Client Port=5119).
9. Save the file, (don't change file name).
10. Start NWN on each client and enjoy dual connectivity to Dyso.
11. Smile.

The problem is that the your clients get confused because the Dyso server is sending data to port 5120 of both of your clients (PC's). Since each PC is listening on port 5120 your systems experience contention and lockup.

Here is a good reference link if you want even more info: http://www.shadowgameworld.net/neverwinternights/server (look for item #2 which fits your situation).
