I have played Defcon on a LAN that cannot connect to the authentication server, with two purchased keys and two demo keys. As long as the keys are different, you do not need to connect to the authentication server to play as the full version - the game simply shows the status as 'unknown' for the pu...

In theory (I think) two people behind NAT can't connect to each other, unless they both forward ports through the NAT. I'm behind NAT (but have ports forwarded) and have hosted games which other people behind NAT have connected to so I'd recon there is a high chance that it's simply the servers not...

Why can I not connect/join most online games?

I have noticed that I cannot 'join' a good proportion of online games - perhaps 80% or more. What happens is that the game tries to connect multiple times and never gets past a 50% yellow progress bar. I suspect this is because I am behind an external firewall, using NAT.

I have purchased a key but I am unable to authenticate, presumably because my PC is behind a corporate firewall. The program says it is attempting to authenticate but never seems to get through. There is no way I can get the I.T. manager to open a port for this - has anyone found a way to successful...

demo limitations not the same on different PCs - why?

I have tried the demo on my PC at home, as well as a PC at work. The file I used to install in both cases is identical, and both state their version as 1.0, "latest". Here's the bizarre thing - at work, Defcon says this on the main page: max demo game size: 2 players max demo players in an...
