  1. Unable to join/ invite one particular player


    A friend and I live in the same town and have the same ISP. Over the last few weeks our ISP has been rolling out new 844E gigacenter router/modems to all customers. He got the new one, no issues. Later I aquired the new one, we now both have the new router
    and issues begin imidiately. All internet functions on all devices (PC, Ipad, phones, xbox, etc.) work flawlessly except for one single interaction; We are 100% incapable of joining eachother directly in any way, in any game, on Xbox one. If we are matchmaking
    randomly or joining a mutual friend everything is fine. If it is just the two of us attempting to connect to eachother in-game in any way, absolute denial. PC gaming=yes. Xbox party=yes. All xbox games=no.

    We have correctly powercycled all hardware (consoles and routers) including fully unplugging them, after and in between every step of every device setting change/ fix attempt.

    Said attempts include:

    •Toggling UPnP and trying to connect while on and off. The xbox IP was listed correctly with the correct ports being used while on.

    •Disabling UPnP and instead port forwarding manually through a static IP using the ports listed for xbox one by Microsoft.

    None of this yielded any results. I have read every forum I can find on this. There are some with the consensus that it is related to our ISP somehow denying direct connections between customers on their network and that this somehow only effects xbox. I
    do not know what this interaction could even be a result of, or what to call it in order to contact my ISP and troubleshoot it. If anyone knows what this could be or believes it could instead be on our end, any input would be appreciated. I understand there
    have been workarounds found for this type of issue, but they involve the use of VPNs or DMZ hosting. My thought is that UPnP is designed to manage device connections and ports automatically so this is never an issue. Additionally, if this was a design flaw
    with Xbox live services or this router hardware, tens of thousands of people would be contacting these companies for support and it would have been fixed. This is an issue that effects just enough people to be annoying, but just few enough to be obscure and
    impossible to find a reliable solution to. Thank you for your time, please for the love of god save me.

    :)

    Destiny - cannot join fireteam

    My son and I also have the same problem now. We downloaded RISE OF IRON as a pre order and played until this week October 14,2017, unable to join target player. But we can join different friends and only do Raids together when we get through 1,000 invites
    feels like..

    online multiplayer gaming

    Minecraft Realms works a little different. You invite the player to join your realm or you give them the invite code. Thus it won't be a random player.

    Deadrising 3 co op broken and generally xb1 party woes

    Have one player start the game then invite the other person to a party. Once you have invited your friend to a party you will have an option in the pause menu to invite party to game, so once they join pause the game and there will be an option to simply
    invite party to game.

    xbox live party connect issues

    My friend does not receive any messages I send, invites, etc. I can receive his, but, when I accept his game invite it just says unable to join session, after 2 minutes. To get into a party, I have to start one, he has to restart his xbox, and then join
    my party via friends menu.

    Minecrafte PE multiplayer - Time-out when joining world

    My son and his 2 friends are trying to play Minecraft together by joining the same world. My son is hosting on his android-device, and have sent a invitation to each of his friends.

    We have tried the following:

    Case 1: "Friend 1" gets the invite, and joins the game. "Friend 2" gets the invite, at tries to join the game, but gets a time-out.

    Case 2: "Friend 2" gets the invite, and joins the game. "Friend 1" gets the invite, at tries to join the game, but gets a time-out.

    Case 3: "Friend 1" creates a game, and "Friend 2" joins and can play. My son tries to join but gets a time-out.

    The maximum player-limit is 10, and they are 3 players in total.

    What can be the problem, when both of his friends can join individually to my sons game, but when they try to join the same game one of them gets a time-out?
