Hey, Xbox forums. I have a problem with connecting to certain friends on Xbox. I cannot directly connect to just them. I can, alternatively, join their party or session in progress if there is someone in the party or the lobby that I can connect to. I guess I can connect to the party or game through someone else. I've researched this problem a lot, and have found that is very common for other people to get the same error. The research led me to believe that we both had to have an open NAT. But I do, and so does my friend. My friend and I have the same Internet setup: A modem hooked up to a wireless router. So I think the problem is that there is a hidden NAT in either my or his modem. I could be completely wrong, I just wanted to come to the pro's to make sure I was kind of right. But I have some questions:
How do we find out who has the hidden NAT in their modem?
Do I have to directly connect the modem to my PC?
Why is this so complicated?
If you have any answers, please, for the love of god, reply.
