Halo - Friend Can't Connect To My Game But I Can Connect To His

My friend & I both have the Halo trial installed on our PC's & use it to play multiplayer againt each other. There is an option to connect to a game via direct IP which is what I normally do to connect to a game my friend set up.

The thing is, it's extremely laggy for me but not for my friend as he lives in Canada & I live in the UK. We decided to try letting him connect to a game that I set up instead of me connecting to him. Well apparently he tries connecting to my game via Direct IP and it just times out/fails.

I thought that this may be due to my firewall so I turned it off & he tried again but he still experienced the same problem.

It's weird that I can connect to his game but he can't connect to mine. Is there any way of resolving this problem?

Use your router configuration to forward port 2302 (UDP) to your computer's LAN IP address. If your PC gets assigned a dynamic LAN IP address, use your router config to give it a static IP first.
