Friend Absol,
We hardly spent any time on it and as I said, I think your issue lay with UDP settings. Let me know if you are able to work it out and get NWN running again, I'll be interested to hear what happened to disable it.

Be well. Game on.

Friend Absol,
Sometimes the key is to de-power (unplug) the router and or modem for 30 to 60 seconds to ensure all the capacitors discharge allowing a clean restart of the hardware. Power outtage has the same effect.

Be well. Game on.

I'm having this same issue (although I haven't tried other servers) and unfortunately a complete power cycle did nothing for me. Are there particular settings I should check for with my ISP?

For ports etc pick your router from the list and it should give you a guide on what ports and how to open them.

Friend Ragdoll_Knight,
Welcome back friend!!!
Yes, the portforward.com site is very helpful. Remember you will need to tell your firewall that NWN needs particular PORTS and note that NWN does not use the TCP protocol but rather the UDP protocol.

Keep us posted on your progress. I very much look forward to seeing you on the server again!

Be well. Game on!

I've set my modem settings according to the instructions from

and still having the same issue after rebooting my modem.

I've fixed it, the problem was the IP i was using for the server. The FAQs post says 66.232.100.90:5122 but nwnlist says 66.232.100.90:5121 and that worked. It immediately crashed upon trying to log in to a char, but I'm going to play with it more after work tonight.

Friend Ragdoll_Knight,

*facepalm*

I fixed the FAQ it was in err. KUDOS to you for spotting that friend Ragdoll_Knight (I see your mighty bug-hunting skills are still in fine shape). Very Happy

Be well. Game on.
