    Please help a QL player that is stuck with an connection error message

    Error message: http://imgur.com/56o75lM

    Hey, guys.

    I've been experiencing some issues on one of my PCs with QL running via QLPrism. There's a connection issue, and I've googled the error and tried a variety of fixes, but they do not work. E.G. reinstalling the plug-in, adding firewall exceptions, turning firewall off, forwarding router ports, restarting router/modem, editing hosts file, updating motherboard & network drivers, etc.

    QL works perfectly fine on other computers in the same network.

    Anyone have any knowledge or experience regarding this problem?

    Specs: Win7x64

    EDIT: nothing is running on port 5222, and I get a ping from xmpp.quakelive.com

    What sort of ping do you get to xmpp.quakelive.com ?

    Does this only occur in QLPrism or does it happen in browsers as well?

    I would suggest installing jabber client like Pidgin and registering on some jabber server. If it works, then we would be sure you have no problems with using XMPP. Sometimes (rarely) it's blocked by ISP

    I get a connection error when i forget to close my vpn connection, so if you have a vpn connection too or something similar, try to close those connections and see what happens.
