    I had that problem with my dedicated server and found my router was bumping up the internal IP for the server box every time i rebooted it.
    Check the internal ip of the box your running the server on and cross reference it with your forwarded ports.
    Startmenu/run and type cmd and then type ipconfig.

    May or may not be the same culprit but worth a check see.
    Its an older lynksis router I use BTW.

    Directly connecting to Wan-IP

    Okay, so... yesterday, me and my friend both opened up all of the necessary UDP ports in order to host UT3 games. He created a Lan game for the campaign, and asked me to (in the console) enter open then his IP and the port 7777. It worked, I had successfully joined a Lan game by directly connecting to his Wan-IP. Today, we tried it again at around one PM to no avail. I couldn't join and the connect screen stayed idle for about 4 minutes, where as yesterday, it immediately connected me. If anyone knows how to fix this issue or has any idea of what could be wrong, some assistance would be greatly appreciated.
Working...
