Cannot connect to friend's internet network

I am trying to connect to my friend's gaming server (correctly port forwarded) and 2 other friends can connect to said server except me. He is also able to connect to my server but only with a hot spot and not with his main internet. All other IPs work besides his IP in this game.


When I try pinging his IP it fails and pings the default gateway while stating "Reply from Destination port unreachable." However, when he pings my IP, he gets a response.

I have tried turning off Windows Firewall, Internet Firewall, and Advanced Security. He does not have any firewalls or advanced security on currently.

Any help is appreciated!

Hi there,


Did you ever get this sorted out?  Wondering if I may have something similar.  If I set up a game server for multiplayer, I can join, but no one else can.  Like you, I forwarded ports, put exceptions in firewall, etc.  The server will start up in some cases, others I just get an error.  Specifically it's sim racing for me.


I can do a virtual machine and run a AWS server, but darn it, I have gig speed and should be able to do this.
