Recommended Posts

Hi,

I need a help. I would like to play in Lobby but I can host game but when I want to join to another game I got message:

Fialed to connect to the server.

Reason: This is often caused by UDP port 20595.....

Whats wrong?

 

Thanx.

Not enough info which operating system we support three and there should be a more verbose error message in the log files.

Enjoy the Choice :)

Hello @Radek,

There are more information needed to find a reason why you have this problem. :)

By hosting a game do you mean, that another people actually can connect to your match and play?

Could you locate log files and attach them ? They can have useful information. Be aware they get rewrite every time you start application, 

so to be usefull, you would need to reproduce this problem and then attach them here. If you do not know where to find them, take look here please:

Have a nice day :)

Hi,

thanx for answer. It seems like a different 0AD version. Im running on Ubuntu 18.10 with 0AD from 28.12.2018 (21946P-relaese). I can host any game but I can join only some games.

well if you can not join only SOME games, there is nothing we or you can do about it. It is issue of the player who host that game. 

 

Difference would be if you was not able to join at all. :)

Interestingly, the game returns UDP error when connecting a hosted game. I'd expect rejection for another reason.

Do you mean this message: This is often caused by UDP port 20595 ?

That can be  because host has not opened internet ports or does not forward packets, firewall is blocking connection, ... (maybe forgot some reason). 

 

If it is another UDP error, please tell us what exactly is the error message.

Yes, I do. If I want to join any of hosted games it returns: Fialed to connect to the server. Reason: This is often caused by UDP port 20595. Some games can be connected and played and some are not - the error returns.

Yeah that's because of a configuration issue on their side not yours.

How come some other people don't have issues joining those games though? Is it possible that some firewalls automatically reject connections from certain countries? I often have the same issue (not as much as before though).

Well could be a number of things. IPV4/IPV6 mismatch, Stun Server being blocked, UnPnP not enabled on the router, Windows Firewall, bad internet connection. It would be nice to have a test bench for all those configs but I don't think its possible.

So is it possible that some hosted game can reject me only and accept someone else?

My experience: I have 2 computers. On one Windows 10 and the other on Ubuntu 18.10. I have a problem creating a Lobby game with these two computers on one network. 0AD on Win10 can not join 0AD on Ubuntu 18.10. Sometimes we found a hosted game that we can connect both (0AD/Win10 <> 0AD/Ubuntu 18.10).

You can't join a lobby game hosted on the same network as yourself I believe, you have to use direct connect instead.

1)

Which version of 0ad you have installed? 0.22 or 0.23? Did you install any mods?

 

2)

Were you able play any multiplayer game thought lobby?

 

Sometimes I can't connect to some host player too (it is because of some UDP connectivity is not working).. also connecting from same IP muttiple players is not recommeded (i think it is not working correctly)
