Clearly there are some firewall issues remaining. For example, are the client sockets using fixed ports? And are those open in the firewalls?
Yes, the client sockets are using fixed ports - by which I assume/hope you mean :
DgClient1 = new DatagramSocket(int_x);
DgClient2 = new DatagramSocket(int_y);
These are both open in the clients' OS firewalls.
They are both also open on the routers' firewalls.
That's what I mean as long as the variables are non-zero.
Are the ports open for UDP?
Yes, indeed they are certainly open for UDP. UDP only.
You are quite right of course; it's not a Java case as such. Thank you for giving it some consideration though.
(And for the record as you ask, it is not related to my last question as such - that one was off an idiosyncratic wish-list - this one is outright network mechanics).
