    UT2004 cant find servers

    When I try and join a net game the screen freezes before even listing the tabs in UT2004. HOwever I can join servers in Alsien Swarm and Air Buccaneers (mods for UT 24004). I don't understand!

    Also some servers have ? or N/A as the ping at the same time other servers show me their pings. I can't seem to join servers with ? or N/A listed for the ping..

    Thanks Doodz!

    I beleive a "?" or "N/A" is listed in the ping field when the server doesn't respond.

    It's likely behind NAT or a firewall, but advertising anyways.

    Check your mutator setup! I had a similar problem when I accidentally left my Jetpack Mutator Filter on and couldn't see servers for any game, mod, etc!

    Most embarressing.

    What's a NAT? I turn my firewall off so what I mean is that I can see some pings but other servers give the N/A or ? for the ping.

    Exo I tried Alien Swarm and AirBucaneers and they work. Also I don't get the tabs come up on screen that list internet/LAN/etc - it freezes just after I press join game.

    NAT is Network Address Translation. It's what allows routers to share internet connections. I mean that the server had NAT or an a firewall active -- that would prevent it responding to pings and join requests.
