It appears your router and/or connection is not capable of NAT negotiation.
==> You will need to use port forwarding and possibly configure a static port.
Press any key to continue . . .

It looks like you will have to port forward. I believe that the static port setting in ZH works, so you will have to forward everything to, say, port 16000 on your modem and then set that as the static port on the game under network settings.

You will need to find out the address of your network card, so you can set your modem to forward to that.

Type IPCONFIG at a dos prompt to get the address of your network card to do that.

I am afraid that we are incredibly shorthanded in here at the moment and I am particularly busy at the moment so I need to leave it to you to google your modem to find out how to make those settings.
