Hi, The problem I'm currently facing is that HGW never gets passed Step 4. Soon after, a message will show up saying:
"Failed to connect to server: W L"
Figure this has to do with my school's internet; I went and looked for the ports used in S4. I found that these ports need to be open for playing:
TCP - 28002 - 28008 - 28012 - 28013
I went ahead and added them to my firewall exception list, then notified my internet director. However, the problem persists.
Then, I thought that HGWC might be the cause of all this, that it could be using a different port than the one the game uses. So, I tried searching for help online. Finally, I found that HGWC is indeed the one that blocks me from entering the game. Also, somebody said that I need to open up port 16666 as the program uses it.
I have not tried asking for my internet provider to open up this port because I want to confirm a few things.
1. Please first tell me if the error message above is indeed caused by HGWC
2. If it were, would opening up a port help? If so, is it port 16666 or something else?
3. If it were port 16666, is it TCP or UDP?
