While trying to join this awesome community, I came across an annoying obstacle.
When following the guides, everything works fine until I try to connect to the servers - at which point RA3 gives the "Cannot Connect to Backend server" error.
Seems like the connection is ok, and there are no significant errors... The issue persists even when my firewall is off.
Any idea where to start looking for a solution?

Couldn't find the solution for this error here:
