Hello All,

I'm hoping someone here can assist....

When I try to host online gaming, no one can join my server.

When I try to join myself via a remote server I get the following error:

Windows socket error: A connection attempt failed because the party did not properly respond after a period of time, or established connection failed because connected host has failed to respond (10060), on API 'connect'

I do have vonage which employs a router, but I have disconnected that and gone directly into the tower with an ethernet cable, so I know its not the router.

I called adelphia, and they say there is nothing they can do on their end, so I believe its a port that needs to be opened or maybe a service that needs to be enabled.

In any event I hope someone can help....

Thanks in advance...

Are you using any firewalls?

Hi tony,

Sygate is turned off as well as windows firewall, and just in case I added an exception in the windows firewall to allow Delta Force 2... still no joy....

thanks for the reply :tazz:

What was the error number?

you should be able to find out using the Even veiwer.

Go to:

Start>Administrative tools>Event Viewer.

I think that it would under System. Look for the red X

Are you connected to a router? The router will have a firewall, and it will block ports unless they are forwarded. You can also put your computer in the "free fire zone" allowing all kinds of traffic.
