System requirements

To play this game in multiplayer mode, you need to do 2 things:

  • Set up your internet connection
  • Set up your game configuration

Set up your internet connection

Port forwarding

The next ports should be forwarded:

Port Process Protocol Direction
47624 cohokum.exe both1 both2
2300-2400 cohokum.exe both1 outbound

1 Both protocols are TCP and UDP.
2 Both directions are inbound and outbound.

ICMP requests

Beside this, also incoming ICMP requests must be allowed.

  1. Windows Firewall (program)
  2. Advanced (tab)
  3. ICMP (sub box)
  4. Settings... (button)
  5. Allow incoming echo requests (check box)

Help with port forwarding

Your computer communicates via ports with the internet. A firewall (software) and/or a router (hardware) could block ports and thus disallow communication. This game needs some ports to be forwarded in order to run a multiplayer game online.
