I have an issue with UT3 when I try to either Play Campaign, or Host a game. I get the error message:
Error, Your network configuration may not be compatible with hosting matches. Please check your routers manual for instructions on setting up port forwarding or a DNZ server.
This only occurs when UT3 is patched and not when initially installed directly from the DVD. I know I could just leave the patch level at 1 but that means I cannot take advantage of the graphics updates or play on many servers patched to 1.3.
I have contacted Midway Support and followed their instructions to set up the ports below for the network configuration of UT3 and their other suggestions such as placing the PC on the DMZ as a test. But the issue still exists. They have now informed me that they have passed the problem to the developers as they can recreate it. They have also requested that I post the details on this forum. I presume they hope to see if anyone has found out how to fix it.
My configuration details are:
Motherboard = ASUS P5N-E SLI (NVIDIA nForce 10/100/1000 Mbps Ethernet driver version 184.108.40.206, P5N-E SLI BIOS version 1301, All other patches up to date from ASUS)
Processor = Intel Q6600 (2.4Ghz Quad core)
Graphics = ASUS NVIDIA GeForce 8800GT (latest NVIDIA drivers 220.127.116.1113)
Memory = 4Gb Kingston 800Mhz
HDD = 2 x 250Gb WD & 1 x 500Gb Maxtor (all SATA II)
OS = Vista Ultimate x64, Vista Ultimate x64 (only OS and UT3 installed) & XP Pro (multiple Boot of 3 separate operating systems, all are fully patched)
Routers = Netgear 834G v4, Netgear 834G v1 and a US Robotics ADSL2+ (1st thing I thought so I bought a new one, then borrowed another, configured all 3 as requested)
Port list provided by Midway Support
3783 (Voice Chat Port)
27900 (Master Server UDP Heartbeat)

Any suggestions for things to try would be welcome as I would really like to get it working correctly.
