I just managed to run the game with Tunngle and I could see a number of servers in the 'local network game' bit so I know it works! The only thing is they're all 'conquest', 'team deathmatch' and so forth. I'm a co-op player and I miss playing the good campaign with another player. Perhaps we should draw up a shortlist of co-op players here so we can add each each other on Tunngle and set-up some co-op games.
Thanks for the welcome. I much prefer to play alongside people rather than against them. One reason why I quite enjoy LOTRO. Using Tunngle, if I create a game through a 'local game' will it be visible to other players on Tunngle?

I've tried to run a co-op game through Tunngle and I asked one other player if he could see my server and he couldn't. Even though someone else had managed to run a co-op game. I did download and install the 1.1 patch beforehand. Would it make a difference?

That doesn't surprise me. Sounds like port forwarding is set up correctly for your brother's PC and not yours. You can only forward a port to one PC at a time. UPnP is the only way I've gotten multiple PCs/consoles to successfully run the same game on the same network at the same time. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Upnp

I've had the same problem where my machine will not show up in the in-game browser for other players. I tried enabling UPnP (where I had to select channels between PvC0-7). However, when I do so, it disrupts the internet access to my PC and I can't access the internet. Any suggestions?

You can do manual port forwarding but you can only forward the ports to one PC at a time. That probably won't bother you unless you want to host a game on one PC which is joinable by someone playing on the other PC plus other people in Tunngle at the same time. But you said you're playing co-op, right?
Hosting games uses UDP ports 2350 and 2360. You may also need to forward some ports for Tunngle (I don't know which ones). See if that works out for you.

I only want to play co-op with other people on Tunngle over the internet. So my machine will be the host server and playing machine too. Is that fine? I tried port forwarding with another game previously and again it blocks the internet access to my machine?

If it blocks internet access, then you're probably modifying the wrong setting. You can also set internet access rights on your router to allow/deny internet access to certain PCs - I'm guessing you've done that by mistake. To do port forwarding you need to find a section on your router's configuration page called "Virtual Server" or "Application Sharing" or it might be with the firewall settings. If you still think you were doing the right thing, send me a screenshot of the settings you changed on your router.
