Newbie question - having trouble hosting/connecting
« on: April 14, 2020, 06:58:06 PM »
Long time, no see, friends!

We are trying to use JCloisterZone for the first time, to play with family members halfway around the world, but we can't figure out how to successfully host a game and have the other party join it.

I get that the host needs to click "New Game" and, while the host is still on the game setup screen, the other party needs to use the "Connect" button to join. But what exactly does the connecting party put in for the "Host" and "Port" fields? And how do I as the host know what those numbers are?

Is Host my computer's IP Address? And how do I find out my Port?

Thank you for any help!
