When playing Warframe, my friend and I are both online and playing the game successfully. We can both join online sessions or cells and play with other online players. Both our logins pick each other up in the chat window when the other logs in or off and chat works fine both ways. In the contacts window, however, we appear to each other as "offline" permanently?! As a result, we can never join in a cell with each other in private mode or invite each other to any session.
We have tried syncronizing all regional and port settings, testing all possible combinations. Is there some trick to this or a problem with the open beta? Any advice appreciated.
My brother has this problem as well. Installing the Steam client seems to have solved it for the most part, though i still cant join his games though he can now join mine. We can see each other online and such. I've not been able to find a magic bullet, but this is the best solution i've found so far. Install the steam version and see if that helps. Good Luck! and let me know if you find out anything else.
After checking all the firewalls of your pc, including your routers', you need to enter the NAT section of the router's page and then the port forward section. you need to create a new gateway. enter your own ip (you can get that by running cmd and typing ipconfig and either ETHERNET or WIRELESS ipv4 address is your ip), Enter 4954 to UDP sections of WLAN and LAN. Do the same things to 4955 and create a new gateway. and in the game options you need to change the ports to 4954 & 4955. And you are done.
THIS IS A WORKING SOLUTION.
I will look in to this page time to time for answering your questions if the description wasn't enough.
