Quake live network XMPP / port 5222
- Get TCPVIEW from sysinternals ( http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/s.../bb897437.aspx ) and use this to see if something is actually running on port 5222 already, if so, evaluate what it is and decide if you need to remove it.
- If not, restart PC, Router, Modem and then see.
- It could just be a temporary problem with your ISP, or the quakelive servers.
- ZoneAllarm commonly causes this problem, open port 5222 in ZoneAllarm or try a different product instead.
- check you can resolve xmpp.quakelive.com by attempting to ping it ( ping xmpp.quakelive.com in a command prompt) ask others to confirm the IP is the same. If not have you altreed your "hosts" file? remove any quakelive entries from it.
QL also uses udp 27000-27999 for game traffic which you may need to open on some firewalls if you are having problems.
The only other ports needs are standard http and https ports for the browser ( 80, 443) which you won't need to open,

We're sorry, but it appears you are having problems connecting to the QUAKE LIVE network. If you are behind a firewall you must make sure that it permits the following connection:
Contact your network administrator for further instructions, or Click Here to look for help.
here is my traceroute generated with pingplotter standard:

even tried plugging my modem straight into my computer, still can't get a ping out of xmpp.quakelive.com
i never had any problems connecting during the beta
it's been a full week like this i've tried everything nothing on this forum has helped and you guys not responding doesn't help either
and i refused to play threw a proxy server.
and don't tell me it's my firewall b/c all i use on this box is windows firewall and it's off.
an there is nothing running on my comp that's using port 5222.
and there are no quakelive entries in my hosts file
i've played quake since q2, bought all your products if you guys don't respond with some advice and/or fix this ** you are going to lose a loyal 10year+ customer.

Tried turning off windows and router firewalls completely. Turned off all anti-viruses. Tried adding port forwarding for qLive and iexplore.
My location: NY
I have no problems with any other programs connecting.
Just tried, no joy here in London either.
These are the kinds of things that make this game just a hassle to play.
I'm on a cable modem, directly connected, no virus/malware/etc. protection, no Windows Firewall, no other firewalls. This just pops up out of nowhere.
If you can't solve a problem like this, it really makes this game not worth it. I'm not going to spend time trying to figure this out because it's just not important enough. I'm sure I'm not the only person that feels this way.
Figure it out or have even less people playing your game. Simple as that.
ihave the advanced firewall, so i made a rule to allow host.xmpp.quakelive.com then configured this rule for port 5222, its not perfect but it works, sometimes i have to click the learn more link to get quakelive up and running.. gl and hf
comon guys fix this please k... this has gone on long enough....was great before all the updates or pro subscibers..i think everyone should get a year free for this ....pro subscription.....
