Gran Turismo will not connect to server. All other games do

6 Replies 5,190 Views Created 05-12-2010

Everytime I load up Gran Turismo 5 I get "a connection to server could not be established" message. All other games I have will connect to online gaming as will all the other internet-reliant services on the PS3.

 

So far I have re-installed the game twice, including the 1.02 patch but still without success.

Anyone else encountered this problem and how was it solved?

I think there still stuggling with the strain the servers, I'd suggest waiting a few weeks and hopefully a new patch or more servers are avaliable :)

That's what I thought as well but when friends are able to connect at will without ever getting the same problem it makes me think it could be a local one on my network.
One thing I have noticed is that no matter what I do, uPNP will not enable and NAT is always Type 2 (which it seems it's meant to be so that's ok. In any case, I lose all connectivity on all IP addresses if I disable it) . I've also tried putting the PS3 into the DMZ, statically configuring the IP address and forwarding all the listed ports.
Still no joy :(

Oops. Turns out uPNP is enabled. It's just listing as not available until a connection request is made. For whatever reason the connection requests aren't showing up in the router access log. Running fw version 3.50

Are any of the Sony techs reading these threads? Even after 1.03 and F/W 3.55, I still can't get GT5 to connect where all my other games do.

solution found at http://www.gtplanet.net/forum/showthread.php?t=144900

 

I manually configured dns to use my isp's dns as primary and router as secondary, and it worked!

 

enjoy.

Ended up doing the same thing after running the PS3 through a packet sniffer on my PC. GT5 couldn't resolve the DNS (unlike every other friggen game I've got).
