Leadsails, if you're using the Gold Edition, are you able to log-on when you use Americas, Brittania, Crusades or Teutonic?

On Vista (32-bit), I'm able to log-in with those four so long as I have "Medieval 2 Total War: Kingdoms" (kingdoms.exe) allowed in Windows Firewall. No such luck with regular Medieval 2 however, even with "Medieval 2: Total War" (medieval2.exe) enabled. I had to disable the firewall temporarily in order to connect. I've tried enabling all the ports listed on a thread on the official forums so that I wouldn't turn off the whole firewall, but so far the only thing that seems to have worked is killing Windows Firewall.

Since I can't edit my message, I'd just like to add that disabling your software firewall isn't an option I'd recommend unless you're sitting behind a physical router or firewall. :)
