Port-Restricted Cone NAT Router
Your internet connection is behind a Port-Restricted Cone NAT Router that may prevent you from connecting to some players in peer-peer games.

You will still be able to connect with the majority of players, but not with those who have Symmetric NAT Routers (which are not that common, fortunately). One advantage of fixing this problem is that the "Preparing Connection" window will complete much faster.

If you do want to solve this problem, it will involve you configuring your router. Most routers are configured through a web page built into them. You may be able to reach yours here.

Many recent routers support a feature called Universal Plug and Play (UPnP).. This feature will allow GameRanger to do most of the configuration required. You will need to enable it to allow GameRanger to make changes. Not all routers support UPnP correctly, however, so that may not be enough.

The alternative is to manually configure your router to do port-forwarding for UDP port 16000. Ask your ISP (Internet Service Provider) or refer to your router's instruction manual for assistance here.

Port-forwarding tells the router to send the game communication data to your computer. The port-forwarding configuration page will ask you for a public port and a private port. Set both of those to 16000. In some cases, instead of asking for a public port, it will ask for a port range (eg. Start Port, End Port). Set the Start and End to 16000. It will also ask you for the IP address of your computer that the data should be sent to. It may call this the LAN IP, Local IP, or Private IP. This should be set to 84.25.113.203.. If it asks you for the protocol or type, set it to UDP.

Unfortunately, it is not possible to offer step-by-step instructions here as every router is different.

If you are at work on a company network or at a university, you may not be able to fix the problem yourself. Instead you may have to ask the network administrator to how to port-forward UDP port 16000 to your computer.

What the **** is this ? Carrier grade NAT ?!?!

Has game ranger gone crazy ?! If not how can it detect this ?!

Ok ziggo might block certain ports like netbios ports just for security reasons....

or SQL slammer to block SQL worms...

But either than that I dont know about this...

Just tried to host a company of heroes games but was not showing up in list, this is a bit suspicious, the link to my cable modem menu was interesting but nope not working... 84.25.112.1

This is just default ip gateway on my pc/host configuration.

Is Game Ranger detecting a miss-configured cable modem/router ? Or just detecting some block ports by ziggo ?!?

Or has lost game ranger it's mind ?

Bye,
Skybuck.

Guess not though...

Maybe my cable modem at 10.255.x.x ?

Guessing not... but who knows

Might scan that range later.

Default Port-Restricted Cone NAT Router (Game Ranger)

The annoying part with ms-dos prompt is:

1. Left click does not perform a copy.
2. Right click does perfom a copy.

Who the **** can remember this ?!

Even more annoying

3. Right click actually pastes text too..

So while trying to copy... it then ****ing pastes !

ARRRGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

Bye,
Skybuck.

P.S.: Can anybody at Microsoft explain this retarded **** ?! LOL. SERIOUSLY EXPLAIN IT.

You ****ers actually use this to build windows 10.

Well now I wanna know why you think this **** is handy ?! WOW... just WOW.

You don't have a router, so forget the idea of NAT or port forwarding.
Simply bring up your firewall settings and allow UDP/16000. Done.

Do a before and after test with the Shields Up program to verify that
port 16000 is no longer Stealthed.

Has game ranger gone crazy ?! If not how can it detect this ?!


Simple. It checks if UDP/16000 is open by sending packets to it.

It gives this message even if the windows firewall is down, how do you explain that ?

Does your ISP allow incoming UDP traffic on port 16000?
