I have had a problem connecting through gaming sites for about 6 months and no-one seems to be able to help. I try playing online games and when i select a room to play in it says 'connecting to' and gives an IP address. A counter increments but just keeps counting. This happens with Jedi Outcast, Medal of Honour Soldier of Fortune 2 so far. I can, however play Quake 2 through a local gaming site no problem and was able to play Unreal Tournament 2003 via the network option on the game with a friend by exchanging IP addresses. I run 1 Ghz Athlon processor, 256 Mb RAM, Gforce MX420 card, with latest drivers and have zone alarm freeware and norton anti virus 2003. I tried the game at a friends house and he has the exact same security software and a lower spec comp and it worked fine. He also has the same ISP. I have been told zonealarm could be the problem but i have allowed the games access to the internet via zonealarm and it works at my friends with the same software.

Hi,

If you suspect ZoneAlarm to cause your problem, have you try disabling/closing it to test?
