Hello, I'll try to exlain my issue clearly and in details
When I try to login, it says 'Could not connect to C&C Generals Zero Hour Online'
I'm on windows 10. To be honest I don't know the version of the game I'm using. It's not First Decade, Origin, Steam, Ultimate Collection, maybe 'normal' version.
I followed the installation guides, and read carefully the common issues and solutions. Also searched a lot on google and youtube, but nothing solved the problem, you guys are my last hope.
I also run this connection diagnotic tool, here's the result:
"Failed to receive any pings from nntest.cnc-online.net:40000.
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"
I've already set my pc to static ip and forwarded the port 16000  (UDP protocol) on my router to my pc ip.
I don't know if it's relevan, but I'll mention this anyway: I can enter on games using gameranger, but it always shows this message "Port-Restricted Cone NAT Router", and the games have too much lag. 
I've ran this command on powershell: 
Test-NetConnection peerchat.server.cnc-online.net -port 6667 

Here's the result:
ComputerName     : peerchat.server.cnc-online.net
RemoteAddress    :
RemotePort       : 6667
InterfaceAlias   : Wi-Fi
SourceAddress    :
TcpTestSucceeded : True
I tried to disable firewall / antivirus.
I tried to enable DMZ on router
I tried forward these ports on router: 80, 4321, 6667, 27900, 28910, 29900, 29920
I tried to connect using wifi and cable
I tried to use a free vpn (not sure if I did this with the correct configurations, I know nothing about VPNs)
My internet connection is fine, I participate on video calls on zoom regularly and hardly notice any delay or connection problems. Watch movies on netflix. 
I even installed League of Legends and World of Warships to check my connection, and I managed to play both titles online without connection problems and without lag. But honestly, I don't want to play these games, neither CSGO, Fortnite or any other. I want good old Zero Hour that was so relevant in my childhood.
Please, help me. Why can't I connect? How can I solve this problem?
I will consider paying for a VPN or any other service, if that's necessary.
Thank you very much

Try to change your resolution, and then it should work.

I'v tried changing the resolution but the issue still there

I used the following command and here's my output: 


PS C:\Users\PjaN> Test-NetConnection peerchat.server.cnc-online.net -port 6667
WARNING: TCP connect to ( : 6667) failed
