Age of empire on Gameranger

I have been playing Age Of Empires from a long time, but since one of my friend asked me how can I play it online, I am writing this post to dedicate him.
One place where I used to play AOE online was Gameranger. It is very easy to use software which require the client installation and once you have installed Game Ranger, you can directly play AOE with online players. There are so many players playing AOE online every time around the globe.
