I'm right with you, my dad and I are trying to play Red Alert 3 and we have CnC Online. Both of us it's saying that we cannot connect to backend server, no idea what this means. Hopefully, somebody can help us out.

EDIT: I got it! You have to go remove the internal firewall in Red Alert 3!


Steps: Go into the Windows Command propt (Windows+R)
Type: %appdata%
Click "Red Alert 3"
Click "Profiles"
Click: Your name user. ie. "Zayda41"

Click: Options

Delete the line: "FirewallPortOverride=0"


Make sure to save!!

All credit goes to the CnCNet Discord! :)
