Internet Ports Required to Play Splinter Cell: Conviction (http://ubisoft-en.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/14621/p/88,2069) are absolutely necessary in order to play Splinter Cell Conviction multiplayer online (ie: join/host matches)... here are a couple of tips on opening ports in your router (port forwarding):

1. Find your router in one of these guides and follow instructions: PcWinTech (http://www.pcwintech.com/port-forwarding-guides) or PortForward
(http://portforward.com/english/routers/port_forwarding/routerindex.htm)
2. Download and install Simple Port Tester (http://www.pcwintech.com/simple-port-tester) (its freeware) and verify if the Splinter Cell Conviction ports are open

This is an example of what Port Forwarding should look like in your router:



Port/Name


Inbound/Start


Outbound/End


Protocol


Internal IP



9100

9100

9100

UDP

192.168.0.?



9103

TCP

192.168.0.?



22350-22380

22350

22380

TCP

192.168.0.?




NOTE:

* Use internal IP address and not external IP address when forwarding & testing. If you are uncertain what this internal IP address is, go to Windows/Start/Run/type cmd and hit enter... at the command prompt, type ipconfig /all and hit enter... look under Ethernet adapter Local Area Connection 1 for IPv4 Address... this is your local IP address.

** If you test all these ports and it reads "Failed", then you have closed ports... if you test all these ports and it reads "Successful", then you're ready to play Splinter Cell Conviction multiplayer on-line.



If after "successfully" opening ports in your router and firewall and you still experience connection problems/issues, it could be:

1. Another program on your PC that is monitoring/scanning/blocking incoming/outgoing traffic... disable (temporarily while you play) any and all Internet Security programs

2. Your internet throughput is bottle-necking due to other programs tying-up the bandwidth... disable/exit all programs that are accessing the internet (torrents, downloads, chat/talk programs etc.)

3. You're using a Wireless Network to play Splinter Cell Conviction and you don't have a good solid/steady connection... your wireless connection may be sufficient to browse the web/email etc... but you need a good solid/steady connection to play Splinter Cell Conviction online multiplayer (or any other online multiplayer game for that matter) using a wireless connection... I believe this is the culprit in many connection problems/issues. Hope this helps.


Good luck.

I don't have another program on my pc blocking incoming/outgoiung traffic, I also have all ports opened, but it still doesnt work, it wont load the game in coop, server connection error, ive literally tried everything I can think of, its their worthless DRM that is preventing me from playing a game i just bought ONLINE with my buddy. I even tried on a fresh install of windows 7 with no firewall, all ports specified open, same exact thing. What a joke. Another thing, what kind of game company thinks their users should have to OPEN UP MULTIPLE PORTS and disable their firewall just to play it online, absolutely ridiculous.

Hello y2kcamaross... I've been seeing a lot of these problems/issues in the last week or so (here on this forum)... new players are successfully opening their Splinter Cell Conviction ports and yet still can't connect to the server; you're the perfect example with re-installing Windows OS and no firewall. I'm not sure what's happening. My only suggestion is to contact Ubisoft Support (http://ubisoft-en.custhelp.com/app/home). Good luck.

Just bought the game via Steam, opened up all my ports after reading the forums and still getting the 'Servers aren't available at the moment' error.
This is ridiculous, paying for a game and the MP doesnt even work...I guess I was better of pirating the game...
Never buying an Ubisoft game again!

Please fix this ASAP

UBI games are so farked up now....



Your internet throughput is bottle-necking due to other programs tying-up the bandwidth... disable/exit all programs that are accessing the internet (torrents, downloads, chat/talk programs etc.)

Really? Most multiplayer games won't even use 50KB/s with voice enabled.. internet throughput is a problem for UBI games?



80 80 80 TCP 192.168.0.?

How farked up would a company have to be to require to use TCP 80? Do you make http server software?


AFAIK
the server is not available problem has absolutely nothing to do with port forwarding..

Hello dienasty1988... yes, in the past week or so, there has been many posts/threads showing players who have "successfully" opened ports but are still having problems/issues. But it seems (I could be wrong - so don't hold me to this) all indicators are pointing to Steam... most (if not all) who are having connection problems/issues (even after "successfully" opening ports) are new players who have just purchased the Splinter Cell Conviction game from Steam. Honestly, I'm baffled myself; my buddies and I have been playing all weekend without any problems what-so-ever, so it's not the Ubisoft Servers... could be some kind of DRM/Steam conflict; look at my post on DRM (http://forums.ubi.com/showthread.php/691258-Can-t-log-into-Uplay-UPLAY!?p=8476438&viewfull=1#post8476438) and see if this applies. Nevertheless, whatever it is, it has only been occuring very recently and only (it seems - so don't hold me to this) to new Steam players. I would suggest posting in the Steam Forum (http://forums.steampowered.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=383) and contacting Ubisoft Support (http://ubisoft-en.custhelp.com/app/home). Good luck.

What does it have to do with steam at all? All steam does is pretty much content delivery....

Now I did some digging of my own and I found in steamapps\common\Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell Conviction\Support, the release notes patch v102.
So I think to believe that the steam version that got downloaded isnt up to date with the 1.04 version thats out and thats why we're getting the servers are offline error.

So I downloaded the patch from the Ubisoft site.
But as soon as I click to install it, It says "game is not installed. Please install the game and then apply this patch again."

How am I able to update the game ?!

Hello dienasty1988... the file you found on your hard drive under the Support folder is just a txt file with release notes (although it should read: ReleaseNotes_Patch104.txt)... nevertheless, to verify your current version of Splinter Cell Conviction, look in your game folder (e.g.: C:\Program Files (x86)\Games\Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell Conviction\) for a file called gameinfo.ini and highlight/right click/edit... this should open the gameinfo.ini file... look for your version here; it should read: version=1.04... hope this helps. Good luck.

dienasty1988
07-24-2012, 04:34 AM
Hmm in the Gameinfo.ini file it does say this version is v1.04
Weird that it doesnt say the same for the release notes.
How can i update my game, just to be sure its on the 1.04 version.
Ive already downloaded it, but keep getting an error when i try to run it.

We write the year 2012 and you cannot connect simply over your Steam-Buddy-List.... *facepalm*

Opened the correct ports, everything was filled in correctly... So: Still not my fault! Still not working!

Every other Steam-Game went smoothly into cooperative -mode... but THIS? ....

So... WHY do Ubi$soft insist to forcing me into their stupid UPlay?! When I BOUGHT their game over STEAM?!

Hello?!
I PAYD for your Product, so I want to play it! Please! WITHOUT signing in, into thousand **** Accounts!

This is so great....
Stop your support for the superior SC3, giving us only a handfull coop-maps and slapping us in the face with your casual conviction... " - -

And still no Answer from your Support-Department, everything I find are cheap suggestions for opening ports (that has been done long ago!), most of them come from players, and not the Ubi-Team!


Sorry for my angry "rant" .... but I can't take it anymore.
Being treated like an ******* by a Company that earns Millions of Money and is *****ing over the used games market.

What comes next?! Do you want to put a camera in front of our faces, to see if we are the true owners of our Accounts?! Do you have to take a DNA-Sample from us, everytime we try to log in?!



And if it were only the fail in Cooperative-Mode...
NO!
Your %## Ubilauncher takes nearly 2 minutes for opening and slapping me worthless messages into my face. With no real options to configure that worthless thing, there is no way to use another gate.
And don't start me about "synchronicing-Errors" and the loss of your Savegames.


THIS WAS THE LAST TIME I BOUGHT A SH***Y UBISOFT PRODUCT!

Hello MayfairLazaruz... I completely understand your frustration and anger over this connection problem/issue. Honestly, I don't know what's happening... there are many posts/threads showing players who have "successfully" opened ports but are still having problems/issues; could be Steam related... my buddies and I have been playing without any problems, so it's not the Ubisoft Servers. This problem/issue could be (I could be wrong - so don't hold me to this) due to the DRM (digital rights management); DRM is like a digital lock that prevents "intellectual property" from being copied freely, just as physical locks are needed to prevent personal property from being stolen (DRM is very controversial). It's quite possible (and more likely the case) that if you have any Ubisoft "cracked" or "pirated" games installed, that this could be directly related to the this problem/issue. Let me explain; the DRM digital lock is inherently intended to block all illegal use of the game and "cracked" or "pirated" games bypass this DRM by blocking login/access to Ubisoft Servers... well, now when you try to run you're installed "legitimate" Ubisoft games, it won't let you login/access the Ubisoft Server "successfully" because your "illegitimate" Ubisoft games have altered or modified your "legitimate" Ubisoft configurations (with respect to the DRM). If this is the case (I'm not saying that it is), my only suggestion would be to uninstall all of your legitimate and illegitimate Ubisoft games and do a "clean install" of only your legitimate Ubisoft games.

I would also suggest posting in the Steam Forum (http://forums.steampowered.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=383) and contacting Ubisoft Support (http://ubisoft-en.custhelp.com/app/home). Good luck.

Actually... that's really "great" and I actually don't know how I should respond to this (without insulting anyone)

Let's recapture this:
YOU are saying I can't play online because your crappy DRM-Server thinks I used a illegal copy of a Game I acually bought on Steam? WTF?!!

Instead of providing some obviously neccessary precautions with your Server and your obviously NOT working "DRM", you are... insulting your customers?!

Thats very low!

(and I don't want to know, how many Splinter Cell - & Assassins Creed fans who run into the trouble caused by YOU, aren't even signing in here and posting their issues!)

Green.Hornet
07-25-2012, 01:16 AM
Hello MayfairLazaruz... if you were insulted, that wasn't my intention... just trying to help. I don't work for Ubisoft nor do I know anyone who works for Ubisoft; I am just another Splinter Cell Conviction player like you... so don't shoot the messenger. If you don't have any illegal games on your PC, then you should have nothing to worry about. Good luck.

MayfairLazaruz
07-25-2012, 11:50 AM
no offense taken...I guess.

It's just:
Whats so hard about finding a solution with steam?
Isn't one DRM enough?!

And I think everybody knows: The Pirates have their fun. They play without downtime and connection-error-messages!

So, why is Ubisoft kicking us PC Gamers so delightful in the nuts?

And as I said:
It seems to require a lot of luck, getting a SCC Game working in coop-mode.
Some People - like you - have the good side of the coin - others, Like me and thousand others getting punched in the face repeatedly by Ubi$oft.

And even a blind man can see the Issue here:
Keep stuffing your Game with worthless DRM - 2 "make-you-.insane-"-Precautions at least, and the System is susceptible.

Sorry guys: Ubi$oft definitely lost it!

07-25-2012, 01:50 PM
Hello MayfairLazaruz... I agree with you about the DRM (digital rights management); what bothers me most about the DRM, is that (as a consumer) I am being punished for the actions of others. Besides this, in the grand scheme of things: have the Software Developers really gained any ground in this matter? I don't believe they have.

Anyhow, back to your connection problem/issue... I am leaning more-and-more toward DRM being the culprit... let me explain; In the last week or so, I have seen dozens of posts/threads with all of them reading (pretty much) the same thing... "I purchased the Splinter Cell Conviction Game thru Steam during the Summer Sale; we've opened all the neccessary ports "succesfully" and yet still can't connect to the server to play the game". Now what would cause this to occur?... this is the question at hand. The only plausible answer I can come up with is: as I mentioned in my previous post (http://forums.ubi.com/showthread.php/694907-Internet-Ports-Required-to-Play-Splinter-Cell-Conviction?p=8497268&viewfull=1#post8497268), it very well could be a DRM/pirated software conflict. If you have any "other" Ubisoft illigitimate games installed, uninstall them and do a clean install of Splinter Cell Conviction. It could also be a direct conflict between the DRM and some "particular" end-users hardware changes. Let me explain; Ubisoft's DRM is tied to your hardware (as most software is these days - including Windows OS's) and if you make any (major) hardware changes, the DRM can/will block a "successful" login to the Ubisoft servers... the argument/issue here is whether a PC with its hardware exchanged is still the same PC... if the DRM can't tie your new hardware to your "original" Activation hardware, then the DRM can/will block a "successful" login to the servers.

These are merely suggestions/ideas as I honestly don't know why players are having this problem/issue... all I do know is the Ubisoft servers are (and have been) up-and-running (I know this because I play nearly every day - I love this game), this is why I would strongly suggest/recommend contacting Steam Support (https://support.steampowered.com/) and Ubisoft Support (http://ubisoft-en.custhelp.com/app/home). I hope this helps. Good luck.

I have been working with someone at tech support now for a few weeks to try and get my game to let me on the servers. I have opened every port listed in any forum now as well as trying to get on with no firewall, no virus protection on of any kind. Wouldn't it make more sense if they think this is a DRM issue for them to just issue new Keycodes for us to try? I am no pro on this and I shouldn't have to be to play a simple game. :mad:

Hello henrykimchee... If the link to PCWintech is not working (it's working fine on this end), then try:

for Router Guides:
1. go to the PCWintech home page http://www.pcwintech.com/
2. from the pull-down menu (top left) select "Routers"
3. next, select "Router Guides"
4. next, select "Port Forwarding"

for Port Tester:
1. go to the PCWintech home page http://www.pcwintech.com/
2. from the pull-down menu (top left) select "Products & Tools"
3. next, select "Port Forwarding"
4. next, select "Simple Port Tester"

Here you will find the "Router Port Forwarding Guides" as-well-as the "Simple Port Tester" I was referring to in my original post.

Good luck.

Looks like too many people still have problems with this.

I was getting this error message as well, tried to opening ports and etc. but nothing works. Then I contact Ubi Support. For who the game still crashing after open ports and blablabla, try to explain what's happening, give all informations like if you purchased steam version or not and blablabla. In my case, they recognized my serial key was invalid and sent me another one. Good luck.

Hi Guys and Girls, Now I have and issue with connecting in co-op that is simlar . The wife and I play Splinter cell we like to play co-op. I invite her into my party message comes up unable to join host blah blah. Now if she invites me we connect no trouble. I've tried port forwarding and used the simple port tester and the only port that failed is the 80 all other ports work fine and are open, I've turned of fire walls, I've run pc in DMZ and still have that issue. A friend has tried to connect to me and failed but I can connect to him no trouble. Not sure what I can try to fix the issue any ideas?

We are on a 4 port router . also Wife is trying to join my party a message flashes up saying "Host has Changed, Migrating" does that give you guys any ideas how to fix it? has it happen before in other games?

I have forwarded the ports mentioned. (why I have to do this is beyond me... other games use upnp!???)

Well my problem (before testing it INGAME, of course the port tester was successful) is - DO i really have to forward TCP port 80? I have a web server going and this would crash...

I have given up on ubisoft support. Have asked two SIMPLE questions and I haven't heard anything for days... They could at least, as other companies tend to do, give a mail that say they have recieved my question(s) and that they are working on it.... The absolute silence is so annoying! I would like to avoid Ubisoft for their arrogance, but they actually have great titles - and they don't care if I buy or not....

Hello

I have all ports open in router configuration, but simple port tester says "failed" all ports.

I can't connect Conviction servers. My friend can play online.

I tried following solutions:

Turn off my antivirus and allow Conviction and Uplay in antivirus. Windows firewall off too.
Re install Conviction and Uplay
Conviction update (v1.04) manually install
Conviction current version v1.04 and Uplay version 3.1.1.

Nothing works

My all other games works fine in internet

What is wrong? Can I receive new CD-key or what?
