    After the recent halloween updates we havent been able to connect to a casual match through the match making system with two computers connected to the same network.

    After the system finds a game and our clients start connecting to the server one of us always gets the competive matchmaking abandon popup and is not able to connect by pressing the "rejoin" in the comp abandon popup (weird to even get a comp warning since we are trying to connect to a casual game.)

    This problem has been presen since one of the later halloween update patches, worked fine when the very first halloween update rolled out.

    Verifying cache or restarting etc. never seems to help.

    Would be nice to be able to play this game together from the same network still.
    Can anyone else try connecting to a match with two people from the same network?

    Edit: This did the trick.

    Yeah just found out about +clientport now. How weird that this only started after one of the Halloween updates and I have never had to do this with any PC connected to this LAN, and we have been playing through the same network for a good few years now.

    i have a problem where if 2 people on the same network are playing tf2 they can't play on different servers. it always gives a "connection failed after 4 retries" error.
