Cant connect to certain players xbox live parties

My friend has recently gotten xbox live and i have been having problems connecting to him, for example i cannot join any form of chat with him, unless he is in another persons party and i join that persons party, and i cant invite him to game parties like on call of duty. I can play with him online if i join his session in progress. Now i have check my NAT numerous times. Ive spent many hours on my router settings trying to figure things out. Everytime i try to connect it says "cant connect to xbox live party, there must be a network problem." Please dont respond with a check your NAT link!

I have had the same problem all day.  I did a network test and it immediately connected with my buddy.  I don't have a clue what that network test could have changed, but it is the only thing I did at that time.  I had been able to to connect with other buddies all day, just not one specific friend.  

Good luck, that's what fixed it for me.  Only took about 6 hours to figure that out.

If your NAT type is open and you have reset your router, tell him to follow this guide: forums.xbox.com/.../strict-or-moderate-nat-type.aspx Then once he has reset his router and his NAT type is open, you should be fine and you should be able to connect. If you still can't, contact Xbox Support: http://support.xbox.com/en-US/contact-us
