Is this an error that comes up when you try to join a game, or is it given as a reason that you are kicked, or what? What servers are you trying to join, and where do you live? Operating system and bzflag version wouldn't hurt either. More details would be good.

As an aside, I'd suggest that you not use Text Messaging style abbreviations in this forum. Many of us are older than 30, and we didn't grow up with cell phones and text messages. For example, what does w/e mean? I'm assuming that idk means "I don't know" but still, better to be clear. Yeah, we could go look up the abbreviations on the Internet, but since you're the one asking for help, you might, as a courtesy, speak the language of the people who from whom are asking information.

OK. First off, notice the little edit button in the upper right corner of your post. Please use it, if no one else has responded before you have something more to say.

UDP is a network protocol that may be required to play on a server (many, if not most require UDP). On the client, UDP is always on. When you have problems with UDP, the problem is with your router and not BZFlag. Make sure your router has the latest firmware, and then let us know if you are still having the issue.

Also, we are still waiting on all the info longhair requested, to help you more specifically. Also, if you still have the problem after updating your firmware, we will need to know the model of that also, in case it requires some special configuration.

Also verify that you are running the latest version of the game. There was a 2.0.10RC2 just recently posted on the forum, so try that one and see if the problems persist RC2 means it is not a final version of the game, so report any issues on that forum thread. If you still have UDP issues, report those here.
