[How To] Play Warcraft 3 The Frozen Throne LAN Online Free Using Tunngle (Forget Hamachi & Garena)
1-11-10: Initial release.
1-12-10: Added my youtube video.
Foreword: There is nothing illegal about playing Warcraft 3 LAN online bypassing the Battle.net servers. I have a legit game, and I play on Tunngle with friends time to time. If you are a Hamachi user, I suggest you switch to Tunngle. There are more people and its easier to host!
I love DOTA. I love it so much that I play it when I am sick of playing other games. With that said, someone had requested a Tunngle tutorial on how to play this game online, so here is the tutorial. If you want to play DOTA online with me and the others, add my Tunngle username: Versatile.
1) First of all, make sure you have the latest game update. You can get the latest Warcraft 3 The Frozen Throne update here.
2) Download and install Tunngle. Make an account. Sign in. If you are having trouble signing into Tunngle, then you need to port forward UDP 11155 for your computer. Don’t know how to port forward? See my video below:
3) Go to the Warcraft 3 Frozen Throne network. Or the Dota Network. To get there, you need to login to Tunngle. Then do Community -> Networks -> Browser -> Strategy -> Forward (Press 4 times) -> Double click on the Warcraft 3 network.
Below is a screenshot of me in the Tunngle room.
4) Launch your Warcraft 3 game. Go to Local Area Network.
5) Create a game.
Your friends will go to Local Area Network and they will see your server.
Once everyone has joined, click Start Game and play!
Having trouble with people joining your game? Make sure that:
1) You have port forward UDP 11155.
2) Windows Firewall (or similar firewall program) has not blocked your Warcraft 3 game from accessing the Internet.
3) Make sure your firewall has also allowed program tunngle.exe and tnglctrl.exe.
If there is anything else, sound off in comments!
