Known Workarounds - we have identified some workarounds that might help you with a few issues. NOTE: These are immediate, short term workarounds. These are not final solutions, but are procedures you can use if you experience a problem instead of waiting for an update. They are not guaranteed to work, but might help you solve your problem.

Issue: PC players experiencing difficulty connecting to multiplayer games
Solution: You need to do a few things if you are experiencing this problem:

* The host must have these four ports forwarded:
7777 (TCP/UDP)
28900 (TCP)
27900 (UDP)
28910 (TCP).
You can find out how to do this at http://www.portforward.com/.

* All players need to allow the game in the Windows Firewall, whether you have forwarded ports or not. You can learn more about how to do this here: http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/using/networking/security/winfirewall.mspx

I really want this game, even with the bugs, but I hope to get it later on after I beat mw2 and have a better experience with borderlands. Also since I have read the multiplayer is only coop and matches, this game can be bought over time at a lower price and still enjoy it with friends.
