I am able to login to the server however, I notice I have a red (poor) connection (ping) to the server is there anything I can do to make the connection more stable?


I have disabled port forwarding and the DMZ on my router.


However I think it's a good idea to at least try port forwarding is there a list of ports I can attempt to open for this server?


The game is running from Origin and I am on windows 10.


Nothing in the CNCOnline_Log.txt that would really indicate a poor connection.


I ran the utility suggested in the "How to report issues" thread. Results below..


Using server nntest.cnc-online.net:30000
Bound to local port 65253
Bound to local alternate port 65254
Resolving hostname 'nntest.cnc-online.net'...
Resolved server host to be ''
Sending client INIT from port 65253 to nntest.cnc-online.net:30000

Received server START [840015]
Server extra port is 40000
Sending client PING [840015] from port 65253 to nntest.cnc-online.net:40000
Received server PING(2) [840015]
Received server PING(3) [840015]
Received 3 pings from nntest.cnc-online.net:40000.
NAT negotiation works with your router and connection.
==> You do not have to use port forwarding.
I hope this is enough information.
Please let me know if you require any further information! :)

The Player to Player connection in KW can use this whole range of ports UDP: 8088-65535. That is a large range so we normally recommend using a DMZ. However, it sounds more like you have a quality of service issue than something being blocked. You should try using a wired connection to your modem rather than Wifi and keep any mains electrical cabling away from the connection from the street to your modem, if you can.

Thanks for getting back to me so quickly!


Unfortunately due to where my router and PC are located I have had to opt for a power to lan device.


just for now to see if it made any sort of a difference I opened that range of ports.


I'll get back to you if it improves my connection.
