well the problem must be the gamespy or something around that because i just tryed my other game online and it wouldnty connect. (this uses gamespy aswell) so its gonna b gamespy or firewalls or something around that. im sure itsd not fsx.

Same problem in the UK - and not a firewall issue, as I hadn't changed anything on my firewall, and disabling it didn't help. I then decided to reset my wireless router, and left it unplugged for about 10 mins. Now seems to be okay (well, as okay as Gamespy ever gets...)

Could be a coincidence.

I also saw a post elsewhere where deleting the gamespy key in the hkey_current user part of the registry worked, but I haven't tried this.

i live in the uk aswell. my dad just got the rooter sorted out or wireless box whatever it is. but i will ask him to do it and if it works il let you all know.

Are you using Peer Guardian or anything similar? I was getting the same error message but deactivated Peer Guardian and it connected straight away.

Port forwarding on my router has pretty much been disabled and my ISP are not willing to offer any help...
