Battlefield Bad Company 2 Connection Issues

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I just recently installed Battlefield Bad Company 2 to play with my friends. I bought it from Origin/EA, which was my first mistake. It took me 2 days before I discovered I needed the Origin game manager to download/install the game. SO I finally have it up and running and now I can't get into any games. Every time I try to join a game I get kicked with the following error:

You have been kicked from the game. The reason is:
PunkBuster kicked 'username' (for 0 minutes)...
RESTRICTION: Service Communication Failure: PnkBstrA.exe

I tried looking for an answer, but it doesn't seem like there is any one particular fix. Anyone have any thoughts or ideas?

Try updating pb from here http://evenbalance.com/index.php?page=pbsetup.php

and make sure you add an exception for PnkBstrA.exe and PnkBstrB.exe to your firewall

Port forwarding also solved my non-Punkbuster connection issues if you ever get any of those!
