I get a timeout when entering a game via the aLobby in Settlers 3 - why?

Possible reasons for this are:

  • The game is already full.
    • In that case, this error is normal.
    • Solution: choose another open game.
  • You are trying to enter a game without an active VPN connection that has been opened only to players with VPN.
    • Solution: Launch your VPN connection.
  • You try to enter a game without an active VPN, which was also opened without VPN.
    • Solution: See Port List and follow the instructions there for router and firewall.
  • You try to join a VPN-hosted game.
