What ports must I open for clean Dirt 3 Multiplayer?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I am having some issues connecting to most Dirt 3 multiplayer games, and when I finally get in the game, my circle is always red and I am having bad lag.
I got a 25/25mb/s line, so thats not the problem.

I have come to the conclusion that I must open some ports on my router, but I am not sure which they are.

Searched for "Dirt 3 nat ports" and "Dirt 3 Internet ports" on Google, to no avail.

do any of you know what ports I must open in my Router?

UPNP? not sure if port or not, anyway that red circle is not connection its how aggressive you are as a driver.

LOL yeah thats probably why, also dude if its just this game, its probably because they are fixing servers since the Code masters got hacked thing.

You also might need to open some ports. Dirt 3 uses GFWL, and you need to forward the ports that service, not for Dirt 3 itself. The same applies for any GFWL game, once you forward these ports for one game, they apply in all.
