After a group of us were playing a while last Friday Night on CMM some of us decided to play on CDM, our CROSSBONES DeathMatch server. When we were about to head over to CDM, one of our Long Time CMM Regular Players informed me that he was unable to play on CDM, or any of the other CROSSBONES Servers with the 5 digit port numbers. The player was using the name "Timmy" but I am pretty sure it was jimm400. Anyway, he said that the ports were outside of his firewall range. I have never heard of that problem before.
Hi Hook. You assumed correctly. My playing location is behind firewalls with a basic nothing in/out without specific permission. The normal range of ports required by UT is already overly large. Just adding the stated ports didn't fix it, so I am guessing there is more than meets the eye.
Ran into a bigger problem that I need to research yet. The game server list quit working. And when I ping the master servers in my list, some respond, some don't. After some quick searching, it seems some of the servers in my list have called it quits. And then the search results are returning opposing suggestions as to which master servers are working.
