View Full Version : Problem connecting a game

20 Dec 2008, 21:39
Hello, guys!
I'm experiencing problems while connecting to a game. When I see a game in the list, I double-click on it and some countdown starts (30...29...) And in the end it displays this message:


What's wrong with my connection ? :eek:

Go here:


Click your router's model (or the one with the most similar number if it isn't listed), then click "Worms 3D" on the next page. Then follow the instructions.

Also, disable all firewalls (including Windows Firewall), or forward that port in them (TCP 5911) if you know how or if the instructions tell you.

Although it is quite odd, as I didn't know that W3D required port forwarding for joining a game. It could be a problem on the host's side.

Well, thanks. But i don't know how to check what model my router is.
And it's strange but in some of the cases i connect normally to a game.

Phew... what am I talking... I'm not using any router.

In that case, it is probably the fault of the person hosting the game, not you.

Well I think there was problem with the firewall. I was running AVG Internet Security and now when I'm with AVG Anti-Virus there's no problems, I connect normally. Anyway, thank you for your replies and Merry Christmas ! ;)

Ah yes, I've never liked AVG's firewall
