Hello everyone,


me and a friend would like to play Tiberium Wars or Kayne's Wrath together. We got both games via Steam.

We are able to connect to the server, see each other, added each other as a friend and are able to open a game and join the lobby.


Then we are not able to establish a connection to each other. We always get the red sign that says that the connection isn't working.


Our IP in the game starts with 192, we entered the port 16000 in the game settings, also tried the "Send Delay"-option.

All ports for the games are open in the windows firewall, we also tried opening the UDP-port 16000 in our routers. Even tried it with the "Exposed Host"-Option (All ports are open)

Still the connection won't work.


Does anybody have an idea what we can do?! Is the VPN-thing the only option left?!


Thanks in advance.

Thank your for the detailed info that skips a lot of steps :D

seems like port forwarding isnt quite doing the trick for you guys but i can still give you 2 options here i can send you the full port list for both games or i send you the vpn guide for the vpn we use for the games
