UT2003 access - 15.Jun.2003 6:17:00 AM

ISA is installed on a standalone with Firewall, Web Proxy, and Scheduled Content services. Basically I use this server as a standalone for test purposes. On occasion I run UT2003 to break from my stressfull days...lol.

My question is, though UT2003 and ISA are on the same machine and IP Packet filters are set to allow standalone machine to access the internet;
- IP Protocol = TCP
- direction = outbound
- Local port = dynamic
- remote port = All ports

These settings still enabled allows for a tighter ISA security scheme on standalone but when I launch UT2003 to break away for awhile, the in game browser will be able to display the servers online but with a ping status as N/A. Of course this does not allow me to join any UT2003 game servers for the possible reason of a blocked port.

I think certain packet filters need to be set such as I did for the standalone to access the internet. I have tried setting the ports for UT2003 with no success. Any information is much appreciated. Cheers. "[Confused]"

Looking at the rule you wrote you are alling all TCP traffic out, not really a firewall at that point. You need to allwo UPD for most games including UT2k3.

Also if you have any game servers yourself that are natted on the same box as ISA, make sure the game server configuration is advertising your public IP address and not the NAT. Natted addresses for game servers will in most cases get ignored.

Thanks for your reply,

Couple of things... 1st I reset IP Packet filtering to only allow outbound traffic for port 80, so that at least global access (HTTP) is attainable locally. 2nd I did notice, from the log all udp ports are blocked. Even when creating Packet Filters to certain udp ports it is still blocked. In fact, any udp packet is filter blocked. Doesn't matter which ones are open or closed. I did some searching and have all the necessary udp ports for UT2003 but none are allowed to pass the packet filter. I have set certain tcp packet filters to at least queury master servers which is ok. At least I can queury the master server now. Its just allowing certain udp port to recieve from the queury. Cause if not all I get is ping=N/A back from the queury.

For the love of... any insite why udp ports are not allowed to pass the filter is much appreciated.

Cheers [Confused]
