Windows defender firewall and dedicated servers

Post by obese pigeon » Thu Mar 26, 2020 2:56 pm

Hi, I have noticed that a number of new players with windows 10 are unable to join the dedicated servers. Is it because they need to create inbound and outbound rules with port 2346 open in order to join a ded?

No, this is just when you want to host, not joining.
When the injustice is great enough, Justice will lend me the strength needed to correct it.
None may stand against it.
It will shatter every barrier, sunder any shield, tear through any enchantment and lend its servant the power to pass sentence.
Know this: there is nothing on all the Planes that can stay the hand of justice when it is brought against them.
It may unmake armies. It may sunder the thrones of gods.
Know that for ALL who betray Justice, I am their fate... and fate carries an Executioner's Axe.

Thanks. Any idea why this might be the case? What i've seen is they try to join and get a gray screen, and never appear in the ded's lobby.

My experience with that problem is, that it is mostly a problem with the ded setup and not with the player who wants to join.

Is it possible for other players to join the ded, and only one player has a problem, or does everyone has the problem to connect the ded with the exception of the hoster?
The answer to this question is a good indicator who has the problem.

I've seen three new players encounter this problem.
