I am unable to connect to other players in ZH. I generally hang at awaiting probe response. I was able to play 2/25 games in 1v1. Not sure why the two worked, i thought i fixed it but they appear to have been flukes. The router setup is the same as it was pre-windows 11 install. I am using the same lan ip so my port forwards still goto my machine. I have tried with the windows firewall off, but in windows 10 i left it on with the ports allowed in the firewall. Curious if anyone is playing on windows 11 without any issues.

 

I formatted the machine and started from scratch, so it is possible that something else is off and its not the OS. At this point that seems like the issue though. I just noted the sticky post about port 6667 being blocked by isps, im actually questioning now if i had done some kind of redirect to send traffic out a different port somehow with netsh on the old install.

lets hope that it is not the OS and go trough the standard procedure maybe we can  kill the issue without much work 

so where is your game from?  like origin or a old cd?

its from origin. i installed it, used genpatcher 1.2b and confirmed i have the same lan ip, all of the router port forwards are in place and pointing to my machine, same as when i had windows 10 installed.

 

i have the windows 11 firewall off, but im wondering if there is some other security service stopping the communication. i do not have a third party av product installed, but maybe there is something built in tampering with the communication.

 

do you know off hand how multiplayer actually works, for example what is the communication of the various clients in multiplayer when you get the unable to connect to other players? do we talk directly to their ips or is it all relayed through the server.

 

my isp blocks port 6667 inbound, but from what i see i am talking to 6667 on the server ip and its the remote port, the server is talking back to me on a random port.

 

i have port override set in the client, but i generally am not seeing any communication on that port when i check with either netstat on the pc or the active nat translations on the router. so it seems like the port override in the client is either not doing anything, or its for a very isolated use case and doesnt come into play for most traffic.

i dont really know if its myy brain working slow today or something different but i dont really get trough what  you are trying to give as information here  usually i dont have a problem to understand that sort of stuff usually   anyways i could continue with the standard question order and see if we can find a simple solution for it  if you want to go way more in depth with that you will have to wait for another member of the tech support team to come back to you but that may take some time  what i can suggest is that we do a  roll back and remove changes that have done and get back to vanilla state of the game and config and work from there   since just a small chagne be it software, hardware, on your side or on your isp side can kill connection  and will require some tinkering  

let me know if you are ok with me continuing your case in a more simpler way so peeps that eventually come back to this post will have a easier time to understand it or you can wait for my colleague to come back to you
