Hello Y2eel and welcome to G2G,

Do You have a router in your setup?

Perform the following tasks to see what ports are open and listening:

1. Start the game up and get a connection established then minimize the game back to your desktop - leaving it running.
2. Click on Start
3. Click on Run
4. Type in CMD and hit <ENTER>
5. Type in... netstat -an .... and hit <ENTER>
6. Copy your results and label <REPLY 1>
7. Type in... netstat -ao .... and hit <ENTER>
8. Copy your results and label <REPLY 2>
9. Type in.... exit ... and hit <ENTER>
10. Close out your game and post your results back here ofr Replies 1 and 2.
