    i am trying to play WC3 on LAN with my friends. they all use macbook. i use macpro.
    one of us created a game. everyone elses saw it and clicked "Join game"
    however, it wouldnt work. it doesn't freeze, but it wouldn't join. after awhile, we got an error saying "Unable to join the game. try another one"

    we took turn to create game, changed map, resetup the network ... but all this didnt work either.

    any idea?

    Go up to your airport connection and do "Create Network". Have all your friends connect to "your" network.

    Then it should work.

    You may thing "well, duh", but have you tried turning off the firewalls on all machines (I spent one LAN party updating, re-installing, before realising that I hadn't turned it off :D)
