Does the IP address you're giving your friend start with 192.168 or 10.0 ?

Find your IP address with http://ipchicken.com/

Is your friend typing letters or numbers?

Unknown Host is usually returned by DNS when a hostname lookup fails.

If you're using the IP address DNS should never enter the picture.

Double check that your friend is only entering the IP address.

im messaging him on steam, he copied and pasted 75.1.218.143 (i checked message logs) thats what i told him...

Do you think it could be due to the fact that i only have 162mb of memory dedicated to it? and i have portfowarded btw

Don't c/p from steam... just type it in manually and it will work. I've been trying solutions for two days and I humored this and it worked XD
Hope this helps people who were in the same boat I was

I'll second the fact you should c/p the ip, if you're getting that error, the first thing you should do is try typing the ip in manually.
