100% Packet Loss

Hi all!
I have not been able to connect to some game servers for a while now and did not really understand why this was. I did a pathping yesterday for one of these and got the results that you can see in the ScreenShot. Mates and people I do not personally know have no problems in joining it.
Thank you for reading,
Matthew

Re: 100% Packet Loss

100% packet loss at one IP along the path just means that it is not set to respond to pings. The fact that you can reach beyond that IP means there isn't a packet loss problem.

Being unable to connect indicates a ports issue with your router.

Well 83.141.186.79 might not have a web server running on it, it would help to know what port number the game server uses.

Re: 100% Packet Loss

Thank you for your quick replies. Indeed, the server does not respond to pings. (The owner looked into it) Thank you for your time.
The game uses port 4232. It's is quite a long story now but all this resulted in people not being able to join my server and myself not being able to access other people's servers (Allthough these servers have users on them).
For people trying to connect to my server, I did the portfording (Thomson TG585 vCool.. but nothing seems to do it (People still can't connect to my server although I see them try in the server's log)
