cant connect to server
« on: February 28, 2013, 07:04:02 PM »
Hi

Currently I am at a library near my house on my laptop. I can connect to wifi just fine (to facebook and whatnot). But when I go to play this game. Its a facebook game called zygna poker. I get this msg:

You could not connect to the server.

The server may be down for maintenance.
Your firewall may be blocking access to port 9339.

Please check your firewall and connection.

If this issue persists please visit our support site here.

I know the server isn't down for maintenance because I can connect when I use there desktops. I can't just use there desktops either cuz there is a time limit. I also checked my firewall and its not blocked. I have installed the latest versions of adobe flash and java. Lady told me that it might be because the wireless is weak so games dont really work. Could that be a possibility though? or do you think its something up with the router? Should I ask to contact there IT guy? Or do you think its something up with my laptop?
Thanks for your time.

They most likely have a firewall at the library that blocks ports except to their own machines.

To test if it is your computer or not try a different connection, like from a coffee house. If you still have the problem when using another connection then you know it is something on your system. If it works on a different connection then you know it is the library blocking it :wink:
