In "Stronghold Legends," you and your friends compete with or against each other in a medieval setting. Problems in multiplayer mode, however, could be caused by Internet applications or your firewall settings.

Internet Applications

Make sure that Internet applications like iTunes, Microsoft Silverlight and Java are closed or disabled while you play "Stronghold Legends." Attempt to play "Stronghold Legends" again and see if problems persist. If you are still having problems in multiplayer mode, they could be caused by your computer's firewall.

Multiple Firewall Programs

You should avoid using multiple firewalls on your computer, as this can cause conflicts. Uninstall or disable the firewalls on your computer. Before playing computer games, make sure that all firewalls are disabled for best game play.

Firewall Ports

Make sure that "Stronghold Legends" is open, and then open your firewall. In Microsoft Firewall, it will be listed under "Inbound Rules." Right-click "Stronghold Legends," select "Properties," and click the "Protocols and Ports" tab. In other firewalls, like Norton Internet Security, click "Program Control" and highlight "Stronghold Legends." Click "Modify" followed by "Add." Click "Next" and pick the default settings until you reach the first page that mentions ports and protocols.

The ports that must be opened are outgoing TCP connections to remote ports 6667 and 28910, and incoming and outgoing traffic through local UDP ports 19966 and 13139.
