It's my first attempt at getting c&c red alert 3 working so I can play online.


I was wondering if there are any issues with the server? I saw the forums go down so I though that might be the case.


For my set-up, I've checked multiple tutorials. I have created a rums.revora.net and cnc-online.net account.

I did the "hook" for c&c, the game loads and it suggests it is ready to connect to c&c online , but when I type in my credentials it doesn't connect, I get a "Unable to connect to backend server" error


the email I used it's the emails used on the rums.revora.net , the password - it's the same for rums.revora.net and cnc-online.net.


Any idea of what's going on? Am I missing something or is the c&c online server down?


Extra info:

Command & Conquer: Red Alert 3

I'm on steam

the CNCOnline_Log.txt is empty


The results of the NatNegtest (where 5.64.xxx.xxx is my IP, altered before posting for obvious reasons) :

It appears your router and/or connection is not capable of NAT negotiation.
==> You will need to use port forwarding and possibly configure a static port.
Press any key to continue . . .
I have created a manual port forwarding rule for port 40000, the results are the same.

@TigariDeRest Please could you make your own topic and post your connection test or it's going to get confusing in here.

@R4Z I think this is a problem with the way your modem or game is set up. Your provider does support all of the necessary services and so does their standard modem. Are you able to reset your modem?
