Hi All,

Any advice on this problem would be greatly appreciated.

Game - Rainbow Six Vegas
Platform - Xbox 360 using Xbox Live

A few of us (10 max) are trying to host a private (friends only) game. Setting up the game seems to be fine - but trying to join it is a nightmare. Players constantly get "FAILED TO CONNECT" when accepting the game invite. Occasionally we'll get in after many many attempts - put this is a real pain in the a*se. Took us over 30 mins to sort a game out!!!

We're all based in the UK, most have the same ISP and all have at least 2Mbps downstream connectivity (not sure about upstream).

This seems to be a common problem but not seen any resolution or tips for this yet

Any of you hardcore gamers got any tips for this issue????

Cheers

Found the solution!!!

It seemed to be either NAT or firewall issues.

All of us have either dropped the router firewall for our sessions (making sure windows firewall ison our pcs!) or moved our xbox connections into a virtual DMZ as configurable on most new routers.

Problem solved!

Game On!
