Hi,

Me and a friend are trying to start a server, I got the server set up on my machine and it was running fine, people can join fine. But he could not join, He can only connect when we use hamachi, He gets "Connection failed" without hamachi.

So i sent him all the files and get got the server up on his machine and it was working for him, people can join fine but then I cant join, I get "Connection failed" this time. He uninstalled hamchi and I can still not join.

What can be causing this?

(Ports are open, Windows firewall is off ETC)

So, the server (in both cases) works fine but none of you can join eachoters game?
Where did the both of you buy the game from? Is it a retail version or is it a digital version?

Have a read through this one:
- DayZ - Troubleshooting Guide

It does not matter it is for DayZ, it might fix your issues as wel even if you are not using DayZ (and if you are its handy).
I think it may have to do with not running the game in administrator mode. make sure you do that with both the game and Steam.

I'm the friend he's talking about. But just to let you know, the steps in the troubleshooting guide didn't help and the same for running as administrator. An other thing, we have both hosted other games before and could connect to eachother without problems. So if you've got any other ideas on how we could fix this. I would love to hear them.

Are you using any custom mods/addons?

You both have Steam you say but are you sure both your versions are up to date? The game version should be 1.62, please check in the main menu.

I've had problems with Hamachi before - you could try removing Hamachi from both PCs..reboot.. try again.

Bless you my son.

We have both uninstalled Hamachi but still we cant.

And nope, We are not using any Mods or addons.

yes we are both 1.62, As we can join each other with hamachi fine.

Gabber just made a mine-craft server and I can connect to that fine... This is weird.

Than I do not know what is causing this. I am out of ideas.
If you fix this please let us know here as well, maybe I just forgot something.

I think the threadstarter will not read but for those who will find this thread:
open ports:
2302-2305 (2304 is missing below)
8766
27016

may be this solves the problem.

PORT FORWARDING (ArmA3) (Firewalls)
ArmA3 uses the same default ports as ArmA2 with the addition of 2 steam ports. So if you intend running A2 and A3 servers on the same machine, you need to edit the ports used
Default ports are all UDP and as follows

2302 (Arma3 Game port)
2303 (Server reporting)
2305 (Von)
8766 (Steam port)
27016 (Steam query port)
