    Everytime I try to connect to the master server it says "Connection failed", as it does for the internet servers. But yet I can connect freely to my servers under my favorites tab, and can play them just fine...

    I THINK it has something to do with me closing the windows process gcasDTServ.exe because it was taking up too many processes(almost 100%) and was slowing down my game. When I closed it and tried to play again, I started getting this problem, but never before doing so.

    Any ideas to what to do? Should I reinstall? Has anyone had this problem before? Thanks for any help, it's very appreciated.

    Oh, and the process itself is back and running after I had restarted my PC, but I still can't connect to the master server or to the internet servers.

    And I can also connect to servers just fine, the servers in my favorite tabs load normally and I can connect to them and play just fine. What does this mean? Is it a firewall problem?

    Okay, I can connect to other online games such as world of warcraft, but I can't connect to the UT2003 server either, the master server or the internet servers which don't even pop up.

    A few people have told me they can't connect in 2k4. It is being checked.

    Do you like work for Epic or something? Sorry I'm new here, but I honestly can't see any other reason to why I can't connect, EXCEPT if it has something to do with that dumb process I canceled

    As a quick google search reveals, that process is part of Microsoft's anti-spyware software so I doubt it has anything to do with this at at all. I can connect to the master server without any problems... try telnetting to it and see if you get any response.

    It could be a problem with the master server itself, no a process on your machine as it would start itself whenever you tried to connect in UT2004.
