    "Join Time Out" and "Connection Lost" issues

    Hi guys,
    sort of new to this.

    My friend and I are running rFactor 1 v1.255, we're literally running the same exact files in terms of mods , tracks, etc.
    All we want to do is drift with each other, we've both tried creating our own sessions as well as joining the dedicated drift servers who are running the Project D 2.0 Race series.

    We've tried connecting direct by IP, we've attempted using Hamachi (only because I remember it working in my Starcraft days).
    Whenever we try to create our own session and join I get a "Join Time out" message. Whenever I try to connect to the dedicated server I get in, race starts and about 2 seconds into the session I get "connection lost"

    only thing we've changed in the multiplayer.ini file is the concurrent server line, only so we can see each other's sessions when we've attempted to join each other.

    We both tried turning off our Windows firewall completely, both running Windows 7 and we turned off any anti-virus.

    Please help!

    Thanks!

    In case you guys use a server password make sure the caps are off when joining (on, in case you use them)
    Wrong password gives this error (as well)

    Initially we used a password, but it was numbers no letters. We tried no password and it still didn't work.

    Which Anti Virus Software do you use and is it Freeware?

    But you said that you turned Anti-Virus off in your first post.

    Anyway. I would suggest to uninstall the whole Hamachi Software/drivers, create a new rFactor Installation and start the Dedicated Server from that new installation.
    Normally the Windows Firewall, if you run the Dedicated Server the first time, will ask you if you want to allow Internet Access for it.
    Answer "Yes" and try to join the Server again (not only over the Serverlist, also over IP:Port).
    Is it still the same problem?

    Windows Defender is "anti-virus" that I was referring to, he runs AV I don't.

    I always get that message starting any new game and selected yes.
