Can you ping that server? (e.g. ping command through command prompt for IP address)

I assume this is also over the Internet? I'd check the port forwarding and firewall on both your router and your friends' computers as well. Make sure there's no IP address based rules on either the firewall or router.

The games we are playing, we can't really ping. Its as simple as he hosts the game, i cannot join it. Yes its over the internet. I have port forwarded some i.p's but not his.
