ok this is killing me, UT as an example - i can connect to servers no problem (by ip) and plays fine but when i try to list the server it gets the total nuber and when it gets to the point of pinging them it just hangs and eventually after 10mins shows a bunch of servers with a ping of 23999+, i created a ip filter to make the isa box pingable and have tested UT from the isa box itself and it lists the servers fine, now when i look in the ipp logs after trying to list the servers from a client box i see this
code:
 
2001-12-29 16:37:02 213.121.118.xxx 194.177.125.42 Udp 1025 137 BLOCKED 213.121.118.xxx

I have the firewall client installed on my local workstation, and I will try to list some Q3 games via the in-game browser tonight. Also, I have Kali installed on my secondary workstation so we'll see how Tracker takes to the firewall client, and I will try to post everything tonight.

I think its because there are servers that are on non-standard ports and when your client goes out to get info from them on these non-standard ports, they wont work and just time out. That is what is taking so long. You might try making an "all" rule and see if the list speeds up after that. This will confirm my theory.

gamespy3d pings servers fine for me HL, CS, Q3. It doesn't use the ICMP ping. Tribes2 builtin gamebrowser works fine too.

Sorry about not getting back to you, I was called away to work on some other stuff for the last few days. Glad to hear you got it working though.

ok i found out what it was, everything was working fine till i started adding content rules, so i disabled them all it it worked again so i narrowed it down to one rule, "hotmail" in it i have *.passport.com and *.hotmail.com and only have it applied to certain users (not me) enabling that breaks UT really strange but it's true i can replicate it everytime

edit, well anything with a hostname causes it so i'm using ip ranges for now
