    Default Random NAT

    So, this is the first time I have ever encountered an issue with NAT.

    When attempting to play Test Drive 2 Unlimited my NAT goes, seemingly randomly, through Open, Moderate, and Strict.
    This makes playing with friends near impossible, we can't see each other.

    I have tried:
    - Enabling UPnP
    - Manually opening ports 8889 and 3478.
    - Disabling my firewall.
    - Ending other applications using the connection.
    - Set NAT Filtering to Open.

    My wife and I are on the same wired network and have managed to sync up with each other a couple of time after dozens of attempts.

    I have the same issue trying to play with a friend who is on another network.

    Like my networking teacher said it last year: "You're using a Home, Kitchen and Garden-router, you won't be able to do shit with it other than using it for soccer practice".

    Either way:
    Port forward ports 8889 and 3478 to the PC you're running TDU2 off. MAKE SURE THESE HAVE STATIC LAN IPs! (if you change locations/routers a lot, try to use MAC-based IP-allocation)
    Just to make sure everything works, reboot your router and PC.
    It should work.

    Doing a static IP seems to work. Thanks.
