You cannot open a UDP port on a remote machine because UDP is stateless - there's no established connection. You supply the remote address at the time that you send data, and if the remote machine happens to be listening on that port then it might receive the data. The only reason to open a UDP port is to listen, not to send, and the address input exists for the case where a machine has multiple network cards and you only want to listen on one of them.

I can't add anything to ned's reply, but did want to mention that a common mistake to watch for (I make it all the time, and you even made it near the end of your post) is to type 198 or 162 instead of 192 and 168.

Does anyone know if there's a psychological basis for this error? :P Seriously, what is it about these numbers that makes them so prone to mix-ups?
