Internet Games

Ok, so my brother, who's in LA, got DSL today. We were trying to see if we can play games online (in this case we were just trying play MOH: AA), however, we're not able to connect to each other. Both of us can connect to other internet games, but not each other. I turned off my firewall, and my brother turned his off, but we're still having no luck. ANyone have any idea why we can't connec to each other? Thanks.

FYI, I can ping him and he can ping me, but we can't connect to each other.

OK, nevermind. We were able to connect through a different game. Which makes sense, cause we were having trouble connecting through MOD: AA before. Thanks.
