Anyway, what I had to do was go into the port forwarding on the router > and forward UDP ports 6025 and 2427 to a certain static address that > would be in the DHCP range of the router, but on the high end (to make > sure no computers on my network would get assigned that same IP address > if they hapenned to connect while my DVC was not connected).
