Hey um I seem to be getting a NAT error for every game I try to join in the lobby. Weird thing is most games show a ping value not a red X, but all of them give a NAT error.
It used to work too, but one day it randomly stopped working so I presumed the tech guys must have changed some router settings (I'm living at university at the moment)
So I asked some tech savvy people, and they told me this about the uni network:
" you have an unfirewalled internet addess, real, to the internet"
"every port aside from 443, 135, a few udp ports (dns, dhcp, etc) and icmp is open"
"NAT error could just mean that the game doesn't believe that you have a normal open IP, and is trying to negotiate with your non-existant adsl modem"
" the game is going to have difficulty talking to your adsl modem to setup forwarding.... because you don't have one"
So looks like port forwarding isn't the issue (or is it? Not sure whether there's a difference between an open port and a forwarded port), and like they said I have no modem, just got a cable running from my computer into the data port in the wall. And the uni doesn't have a main firewall set up, it just uses the individual ones on the computers. This computer is my own personal one though and I'm able to change firewall settings, so I've given all the CoH ports and the program itself unrestricted access, but the problem still persists.
Anyone got any ideas?
EDIT: Some additional info I forgot.
- Sometimes it takes many attempts to set up a single player skirmish. I keep getting an error message saying it couldn't set up the game.
- It also (sometimes) takes many attempts to log in. I keep getting a "this profile is currently busy" message.
