So i tried to use my android phone that is connected to a wifi, and used a wifi sharing app called (Netshare), to tether the internet to my mac(wirelessly). The internet worked, the browser works and i can even go to the steam's website through my browser, but when i try to open the steam app it says its not able to connect.Any workarounds?
Ive tried to look for solutions but haven't found any yet. But AFAIK this likely seems to be the problem with UDP ports(which steam game clients require supposedly)and which the app doesn't seem to provide(thats what i think).
I mean, as i run the hotspot the app creates another network named "something", and tells me to connect to it and configure the HTTP and HTTPS proxy on my computer with
192.168.49.1:8282and thats all. The internet does work but things like downloads and steam login doesn't.
So my question is,is there a way i could forward those ports or even make one (if thats whats needed)?
Sorry for a lame question but i don't know many technical terms.I just want to play DOTA on my mac tethering it wirelessly to my android phone, because the router is far away and i think this can be an alternative solution to buying an adapter(which i don't think is really necessary). Help.
