Updated definitive port list Rebellion (DirectPlay) uses

Recommended Posts

You don't need "Hamachi" to play. Just make sure these ports are unblocked both on your software firewall, and on your DSL/Cable Modem/Router.


This is directly from LucasArts support:

The information on the specific ports required to play multiplayer DirectPlay games, such as Star Wars Galactic Battlegrounds, can be found at




Firewall software is designed to prevent hostile action from outside your computer or network from affecting files on your hard drive. Internet gaming activity can seem like such action to this type of software. You may encounter problems trying to connect to a multiplayer game if your computer is behind a firewall. Please refer to your firewall documentation for suggestions on how to allow specific programs to operate through it if you do not intend to temporarily take it down, or ask your network/system administrator for assistance.


In addition, many routers designed to share one Internet connection among more than one computer have firewalls built into them. Most routers require specific Internet ports to be opened before multiplayer games will function correctly. Please consult your router manufacturer's manual for information on how to set these ports.

Hm, let's see. These settings worked for me


permit:          direction  protocol
dplaysvr.exe      in/out    UDP
rebexe.exe        in/out    TCP & UDP

for any port and you should be fine. :wink:

I created a rebellion wiki page for this topic earlier in the month. If you guys have updates, please edit. Hopefully, the wiki will get more traffic eventually and these threads eventually die and fall off the front page of the forum.

"In the future it will become easier for old negatives to become lost and be 'replaced' by new altered negatives. This would be a great loss to our society. Our cultural history must not be allowed to be rewritten." - George Lucas, 1988. [u.S. Congressional hearing testimony on film preservation.]
