However, if the Server is a Public Server (that is: not behind any Router), then it is possible to play a Private Match Online.

- Networking: Sometimes the game cannot connect to the destination host. This is due to some Router's architectures. If such event occurs, try re-connecting the same host again.

- Networking: For some router, it is not possible to Connect to any host at all. This is a very Rare case, and very unlikely to happen. However, if your router is such, then it can't be helped.
