Lots of people seemed to not understand how to open their port on FAF, so i wrote a guide. Takes about 10 minutes to do, should solve all of your future connection issues, enjoy :).

6112 UDP is enough. And ICE is ready.

Forgive me for being out of the loop, what is I.C.E please?

Also, there's a significant patch incoming in the near future? (I am really out of the loop, hah) If so it's fantastic the devs are still working on FAF after all these years! :)
