Tcp port 24000-24100

Trying to play Lexulous formerly known as Scrabulous. Cannot connect to the server. Tells me if I am on a wireless connection, to enable TCP ports 24000-24100. Its still not connecting. Odd however, that yesterday I played the game without any problem connecting. Help please/ I am having the same problem. I have been playing Lexulous(previously Scrabulous) for over a year without a problem. Now I can only get into the Blitz rooms. As far as I know, nothing has changed on my pc. I have tried a different modem without any joy. I have also contacted Lexulous who have failed to respond, which is unusual as they normally respond quickly. A friend in Greece can login OK using my details. This makes me wonder if its a server problem. My IP is Tiscali.
Any ideas anyone?

I would check your router's port forwarding settings and also make sure you have those ports listed in your windows firewall exceptions list.

Try these steps:

Why is my online play sputtering


With the limited information you have given me, I do believe it is because you're having connection issues, probably due to something downloading, or your connection is just plain being overused while you play.
Some ways to solve this can be to stop any downloading while playing, check all your computers and see if any torrenting programs are running.

Another is to open your ports on your router, and to initiate UPNP (universal plug and play).
From the official Xbox 360 Port Forwarding help center:
http://support.xbox.com/en-US/xbox-live/connecting/network-ports-used-xbox-live

Xbox Live requires the following ports to be open:
  • Port 88 (UDP)
  • Port 3074 (UDP and TCP)
  • Port 53 (UDP and TCP)
  • Port 80 (TCP)
Note If you cannot chat with someone using Video Kinect, you might need to open port 1863 (UDP and TCP).

The link also contains information on how to find out who manufactures your router, which you will need to know in order to find the proper way to change the settings.

xbox live has recently added three ports for wireless internet.
if you know how to open ports (protocols) on your wireless router, then the following should be open (enabled) for your xbox 360s IP adress:
TCP
: 80

TCP and UDP:
:3074
:88
:53

It says :"you have been disconnected from online servers"


There can be particular issues related
to playing through a router or firewall,
including sharing your internet
connection via another PC. In order to
join or host a Conflict: Global Storm
game from behind a firewall you must
open the following ports (inbound and
outbound):

UDP ports 4658, 6500, 10010,
13139, 27900

TCP ports 4658, 6667, 28910,
29900, 29901, 29920

To host a game from behind a router
with NAT (Network Address
Translation), or a firewall, you will
need to enable ‘port forwarding’ on
the following ports to route data to the
IP address of your PC;

UDP ports 4658, 6500

TCP port 4658

If you continue to have problems
connecting to servers or creating
them, try bypassing your router or
firewall by connecting your PC directly
to your broadband connection.

Do not use ALT+TAB and do not enter Windows when multiplayer is running. It will kill the connection to GameSpy servers which are needed for connecting to any internet server.

Cannot connect to the Server when trying to play Lexulous


I started having the same problem. I have 3 macs, not PCs. Have spoken with other Mac users who can no longer access the game rooms on lexulous as of February 28. I went to the Apple store with my computer and they said those TCP ports were already enabled. Their take was that lexulous modified something on their website and did not do a "patch" or something to have it work for Mac users. I have emailed the site administrator but have not received a response, which is unusual.

Sure hope they fix this. Its weird that there is still a fair amount of traffic on their website.

Tcp port 24000-24100


Hi Sorry to hear you are having problems,
MacOS 10.4 has a firewall built into it ( Of course all MacOS X versions have firewalls ) that can have ports opened on it. You say it was working fine yesterday, did you change anything ?
Fastest and easiest way to open ALL TCP/IP ports is to turn off your FireWall for the time you are playing then re-activate it when you're done.
This can be done in the sharing pane of the System preferences, choose firewall and turn it OFF.
You could of course open just the ports 24000-24100 in the same preference pane...
But chances are it might be something else if you did not modify your system since yesterday.
Are you on the same network as yesterday? Are you able to play on another network ?

Internet hookup


This is not the manufacturer's site, but i will try to help.
Is it your own network?
You need to make sure that the network is not protected, or you'll need the password.
Go to Start>Control Panel on your computer
Then go to Network Connections
There should be an icon for your wireless connection.
Right-click -> select Properties
In the selectbox select 'Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)'
Click Properties
Check if 'Obtain an IP-address automatically' and 'Obtain DNS-server' are selected
If they were not, Press <Ok> two times and try to connect to the wireless network again.

Can you also tell what IP-address you get?
Find it by going to Start > Run
Type 'cmd' without the quotation marks and press <Ok>
you get a black command box
type 'ipconfig', again without the quotation marks and press <Enter>
Please tell me the IP-address it tells you...
