Having problems with trying to connect with any multiplayer server. I can see them just fine but when I try to join I get a message window that says that 'Cannot connect to server. Either you are experiencing network problems or the server has vanished' I have disabled all the firewalls on my system to play but I still get this error. Anyone else having these problems or if you can connect could you please tell me what you did to be able to connect?

Gecko,
I had the same exact problem.
Are you using a firewall by any chance?
I use the XP Firewall (i know ,its a 1 way thing) and I am behind a router.
Once I disabled the Firewall I was able to join servers. I dont know specifically what ports to forward so I disable the firewall totally when playing.
The router is a great first line of defense.

The only firewall I have running is the one for Xp. But even when I disable it I still cannot connect. I also am behind a router SMC 7004 ABR. I know the ports I have to open in order to play but I am unsure how to configure the router properly. Does anyone know how to configure a SMC 7004 ABR router properly in order to play Mech 4 Mercs? And if you do please tell me. Thanks in advance.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
