Master server connection issue

Hi,

I am new to Thievery and I am unable to connect to the master server. I tried changing the network settings of my firewall and went so far as to turn my firewall off, however I am still unable to connect. Any help would be great. Thanks.

FYI with 451 patch:
It is primarily a server side patch, but will not hurt to have it. It will however break UED if you ever want to make your own map Requiring a separate installation).

If you never plan to make a map, no harm in trying.

Can you can you play Unreal tournament online? Would indicate if the problem is thievery or if UT.

I seem to be unable to play UT as well. The same problem occurs. I may try the additional patch.

How are you connected to the internet?

Directly though a modem.
Indirectly through a router.
Indirectly through a proxy server.

Do you have a firewall blocking traffic?

Can you play thievery by typing in the console "open 195.200.192.250:7777" (that will directly connect you to brodys revenge)

Can you play any other games on the internet?

can you load this web page http://unreal.epicgames.com/
(the UT masterserver is hosted on the same machine)

Following off above:
For verification/ to make sure all bases are covered, when you said you turned off the firewall, which firewall(s) do you mean? Do not know your system- whether your router has a firewall, Windows firewall, third party software, etc.

Not sure if that is still correct. I believe that the only server master server still active is:
master0.gamespy.com

Ozno:
Do you get a responce when you ping master0.gamespy.com?
(under XP for example, Start->run-> ping master0.gamespy.com)

"Request timed out" means it is your network set-up, and not UT/TUT related.
