Any tips on overcoming this hurdle?


I've installed via Steam, updated and set-up Gentool and Gameranger, and have my C&C creds. I can see the lobbies, access them and get 'in the lobby'.


It then gets to the state of 'probing other users' and capitulates - giving me the above message, always. 


I've turned off my firewalls, I've turned on send-delay, etc - still doesn't work.


If there's a Revora person reading this - happy to pay you 25 pounds to just virtually control my computer to try and fix it - I really want to have a go on C&C ZH again, it's been too long.

Eagle, this is a classic port forwarding issue.

There is a small applet "cnc connection test" that runs in CLi that can tell you if everything's set up right.


Unfortunately port forwarding is a bit of a PITA.  You need to forward your ports (on your router) to a static IP (that you set on your computer).


You're going to need to know how to: 1. log in to your router 2. what ports to forward, 3. how to set a static IP address on your computer.


You can google all these individually.  I can help you with any of these.

Google is spyware
