can't connect

I I’ve been having a problem connecting to the vassal sever, when ever I open the the sw minis mod and click the connect arrows all I can see is the main room I can’t even see my own name or anything else…but before I open the mod after I launch vassal I can check sever status" and see other rooms/ windows fire wall is off, so I don’t have a clue what is wrong. Except that I don’t remember doing initial setup
and that I don’t know how it check if my machine can connect to port
5050 (hey don’t look down on the ignorant :frowning: )

but like I said before I can’t even see my own name so if there is any thing you can think of to help I would greatly appetite it

thanks for your help
