I've recently gotten a new computer (Gateway)with Windows 8 on it. When i've tried to connect to servers that weren't port forwarded (trying to join private servers with friends) I get an "Unable to connect" or it just doesn't join. When I tried to port forward myself, my friend couldn't join my server either. I'm not sure if this caused the problem, but I did have to do a full system reset when I just got the computer (disk partition error, no recovery disk) and the ID I had to use to get windows working again isn't valid (using until I can get my windows install disk with the real ID)
PC specs -
AMD E1 - 1200 APU with Radeon™HD Graphics 1.40 GHz (Processor)
4.00 (3.72 GB usable) (RAM)
System type - 64-bit OS, x64 processor
Not a touch screen
Router - Linksys

Usually, the games i'm trying to play/host would be Minecraft servers/Terraria servers.
Sorry for the late reply, completly oblivious to checking my e-mail.

If ur trying to play minecraft server hosted locally with ur friends on LAN than u mIght as well just type "localhost" no spaces rather than the ip ur friend provides, if its another case, please specify what happens!
Edit: i mean do u see the server on the server list? Have u tryed connecting directly? And lastly has ur friend made a port forward for minecraft using tcp and udp both using 25565 values?
