Jun 3, 2017 Unable to connect to Game Servers - Port 6112 Error Hey all, We wanted to make the information on this issue readily visible as we've noticed a number of topics on the forums for this issue. ... Please note that Support cannot remove the jailing on CD keys, so your best bet is to wait this out and avoid VPN use while playing the game in the future. VPN use restrictions are designed to combat exploitative play. We know that a number of you use VPNs/Proxies to play with friends from within in your house. As a result, we've released some fixes which are designed to stop you from needing to use VPNs for this purpose. At this point up to 8 players should be able to access the servers from the same IP. Please visit this thread for more information.Drakuloth0 Jun 3, 2017
Feb 4, 2014 Firewalls and hosting games If players are not able to join your game, you may have a firewall in place. Firewalls may prevent incoming networks from reaching your computer and prevent you from hosting games. A firewall can come in many forms. In households, they may exist as security software, router and/or modem. The following information will help you configure your firewall. Ports Ports can be thought of as points of connection. The game listens to these ports to receive all of the information it needs to function. You will need the following ports opened to allow your game to accept connections and to host games: Diablo and Warcraft II Edition: Allow port 6112-6119 TCP and UDP out and in Diablo II: Allow port 6112 TCP out and allow established sessions in Allow port 4000 TCP out (realm games) Allow port 4000 TCP out and in (hosting open games only) StarCraft: Allow port 6112 TCP and UDP out and in Warcraft III: Allow port 6112 TCP out and allow established sessions in Allow port 6112 TCP in (hosting custom games) Allow port 6113-6119 TCP out and in (hosting custom games if you have changed the default port in the Options/Gameplay screen) World of Warcraft: Allow port 3724 TCP out and in for Game Allow port 3724 UDP out and in for Voice Chat Blizzard Downloader: Allow port 6881-6999 TCP and UDP out and in Allow port 3724 TCP out and in Allow port 6112 TCP out and in For detailed information about ports and their functions, please visit our support site information on Ports. Software Firewalls You may recognize names such as Norton Internet Security, McAfee Personal Firewall Plus/Express, ZoneAlarm, Sygate, Panda, and many others. These security programs act as firewalls that can block single programs or specific ports from the network. More information on these can be found here Hardware Firewalls Virtually all routers available today have firewall functions to protect users from outside access. In addition to this, DSL and Cable modems may have firewall functions as well. These links will give you information on how to configure your products. For port numbers and information, please see above. • Almost-everything Port Forwarding Related • List of default usernames and passwords for routers • Belkin Networking Support: • D-Link Port Forwarding • Linksys Port Forwarding • Netgear Port Forwarding • USRobotics Support • ZyXEL Support Notes and exceptions There are a few things to make note of. Warcraft III is the only Blizzard Title that currently supports multiple players hosting games behind NAT. Other games are not able to do this. You may experience high latency with StarCraft, Warcraft II, and Diablo when joining the same game from the same connection. These games were not designed to use a shared connection. If you have recently patched a game and get "Unable to connect", a software firewall may be blocking the game change. Please configure it to allow the changed game. A "universal rule" for a hardware firewall may work for all Blizzard games. Forward ports 4000 TCP and 6112-6119 TCP/UDP to your computer. For the Blizzard Downloader, if you have bittorrent set up already just allow port 6112 TCP and 3724 TCP. Port Triggering may work better for you depending on your router. Note that port triggering may fail if there is a second computer playing on the same game/port. Common issues If you did not change your networking equipment and you suddenly are not able to host, your internal IP address may have changed. Check your router's Port Forward section and make sure it is still forwarding information to the right computer.Omrakos0 Feb 4, 2014
Feb 4, 2014 How to receive help in this forum [FAQ] 1. Please do your best to write your problem as clearly as you can. Include as much detail as possible, as too much detail is better than too little. English is preferable, however if you don't speak English well, post in your native language and hopefully one of us will speak it (it also helps if you note that you aren't a native English speaker and note what your native language is so we can run it through online translator programs). 2. Try to be polite. We're not the source of your problem in any way, shape, or form. 3. We ask you questions (even if they may sound silly) for a reason. Please do your best to answer all of our questions, as it will allow us to solve your issue faster. If you need help determining the correct answer, let us know and we'll give you step-by-step instructions. 4. Please don't post your "problem" to multiple threads/forums.

Here's a few things to avoid: ALL CAPS AlTeRnAtInG cApS l33t sp34l< onelongperiodlessparagraphthatsjumbledtogether Hopefully that'll help some of you guys out. =)Omrakos0 Feb 4, 2014
Feb 4, 2014 Forum Guidelines Welcome to the forums. These forums are here to provide you with a friendly environment where you can discuss ideas, give game play advice, role-play, and converse about any other aspects of Blizzard's games with other players. Community forums are at their best when participants treat their fellow posters with respect and courtesy. Therefore, we ask that you conduct yourself in a civilized manner when participating in these forums. The guidelines and rules listed below explain what behavior is expected of you and what behavior you can expect from other community members. Note that the following guidelines are not exhaustive, and may not address all manner of offensive behavior. As such, the forum moderators shall have full discretion to address any behavior that they feel is inappropriate. Also, suspension or banishment from the game will always result in the same in regard to forum access. Your access to these forums is a “privilege,” and not a “right.” Blizzard Entertainment reserves the right to suspend your access to these forums at any time for reasons that include, but are not necessarily limited to, your failure to abide by these guidelines. We reserve the right to evaluate each incident on a case by case basis. The action we take may be more lenient or more severe than those listed under each category. Code of Conduct: Please use the search function at the top of the page to find information on a topic before you post a question. Everyone will appreciate it. Additional Forum Guidelines In addition to the Forum Code of Conduct (, there are some common courtesy guidelines we ask you please follow. While these do technically fall within the Code of Conduct, they’re intended to clarify specific cases that may be confusing. General Discussion Forums are for discussion of topics directly related to each game The word general can be somewhat misleading, but any General Discussion forum is for threads about the game itself. If you wish to discuss other topics whether it’s polling for real-life statistics, or asking what someone listens to while playing, please post in our Off-Topic Forum. Please note that this includes comparisons with other games. Do not post in all capital letters, use excessive punctuation, etc. This practice is used to draw attention to a post. While everyone wants their posts read, we ask that you refrain from using sensational tactics in order to bring more people to your thread. Let your post stand on its own merit. Using the words Blizzard, Blue, or any community team members name in a thread topic is frowned on Everyone would like Blizzard to read and acknowledge his or her post, and we understand that. However, use of such words in the topic does not help that come to pass. Please make your thread title relevant to the post subject. Posting IBL, IBTL, or its variants constitutes spamming We appreciate that our posters understand the Code of Conduct to the point where they can call whether or not a thread is in violation; however, saying “In before the lock” does not contribute to a constructive community and it does fall under spamming. If you wish to acknowledge a post that violates policy, please report it instead by using the biohazard symbol. Do not bump posts Bumping is posting any non-information for the purpose of raising a thread to the top of the list. Bumping a post is considered spamming and contributes nothing constructive to the discussion. Your thread will be seen; there is no need to continually bump it to the top of the list. Petition posts are frowned on This is a discussion forum. Petition threads do not contain much discussion, instead a petition is usually page after page of /signed. It isn’t constructive. If you have an issue with the game, please discuss it in a civil fashion. There are other places on the Internet to form online petitions. Do not post about locked or deleted threads Posts that are moderated have a reason behind the moderation. We lock before we post on a locked thread to stop the violation in question as soon as possible, so if you have yet to see a comment by a member of the community team on a locked thread, please wait for it and do not post on the subject. If you do have questions regarding forum moderation, please use the appropriate contact e-mail. If you have a post to report or a sticky to request, use the report option under the "Thumb's Down" button or email If you’ve found a solution to your issue, or fixed your issue on your own, you can mark your post and the entire thread as [Solved]. Only the creator of the thread (the “OP”, or Original Poster), or a Blizzard Forum Representative can mark a thread as [Solved]. Hover your mouse over the post that solved your issue, and click on the “Mark As Solution” button (it will appear along with the “Reply” and Quote buttons). The post will be tagged with a green “Marked As Solution” banner, and [Solved] will be added to the Title of your thread. Please keep in mind that when a thread and post are declared [Solved], this may only apply to the OP’s particular issue and circumstances, and fits his unique combination of software and hardware. One fix or solution can help many other players, but it probably won’t help all players. If the fix or solution doesn’t help you, it is just one more factor to eliminate in the troubleshooting process, and we’ll try our best to help you narrow it down, to find the solution that applies to your computer, and your circumstances. Please do not post linking to threads you feel should be moderated or stickied. By using the methods we have in place, we can moderate more efficiently.Omrakos1 Feb 4, 2014
Mar 15, 2016 Diablo II: Installers, Stand Alone Patches, and Update Troubleshooting Installers If you already have game keys for the Diablo II games attached to your account, 1.14b installers for Mac and PC can be found here: Connecting to after installing will patch you to the latest version which is 1.14d. Stand Alone Patches If you already have an older version of the game installed and are having trouble patching, go here for the stand alone patch to 1.14d: Troubleshooting When I try to play on the game says someone else is using my key. For this symptom, first try rebooting your PC and checking again. If it still indicates your key is in use, try power cycling your network devices. What if I am receiving errors attempting to patch or cannot complete patching? We recommend downloading and reinstalling with the digital installers: What if I don't see installers on the page you linked? If you don't have keys for the games attached to your account, you will not see them there. Go here to purchase: or use the ADD Game Key button on your Account management page Is there a Mac patch? No, the changes we had to make from legacy OSX to 10.10 and 10.11 support were too great, there is no Mac patch, only the install linked above. I'm having trouble installing the game on my Mac with the latest version of MacOS. With the release of Mac 10.13 (High Sierra). The Diablo II installer currently doesn't work on the latest version of the Mac OS and will freeze or do nothing after you accept the Terms of Use. The workaround we currently recommend is to install it on a non- APFS partition. Alternative workarounds include rolling back the 10.13 update, and installing the game. Then update to the latest version. This is an issue that is being reviewed by our classic games team. *Note - Mac 10.13.4 has resolved the installation issueOmrakos0 Mar 15, 2016
Feb 4, 2014 Temporary Restrictions *Update* We will try to update this information when we can as it's not currently accurate on reflecting the restrictions on both keys and IP addresses. I'm leaving the post up in it's entirety still for reference as much of it is still relevant and will remain so. If you receive the message that you are temporarily restricted or unable to connect, the first step is to attempt to log onto another realm, for instance if you are on USWest (Lordaeron), attempt to log onto USEast (Azeroth). If you cannot access only one realm then you may have a temporary IP restriction. Possible causes for temporary restrictions include: All Games: Spamming text or chat commands such as /friends list or /whisper or /whois (often associated with bots). Rapidly connecting/disconnecting to/from - over 50 connections/hour (often associated with bots or switching between characters). Viewing multiple profiles in a very short time period. Exceeding 8 connections to (often associated with bots). Repeated use of an incorrect password may lock an account login for your protection. Use of third-party/add-on programs (hacks) - these include but are not limited to sending bad packets, flooding the server(s), and the use of hack programs. Diablo II Only: Scrolling through skill selection using the mouse wheel. Going in and out of accounts/characters too quickly. i.e Muling Going in and out of games too quickly (most common cause). i.e. Muling, magic finding, Baal/Pindleskin runs, etc. Repeated requests for a new screen to see what you wish to gamble for. Going up and down a way point to refresh the screen in a shop (see above). Repeated use of a spell with no cast delay such as Amplify Damage or Glacial Spike.This lasts a maximum of 12 hours. Restrictions lasting longer than 72 hours usually indicates that you were witnessed by a representative doing something against the Terms of Use Agreement, which warranted a lengthy restriction. These restrictions will be for connecting to the realm at all. Common causes for extended restrictions include, but are not limited to: Attempting to use an invalid CD-Key (often associated with bots). Excessive spamming or flooding in a channel (often associated with bots). Spamming over multiple channels - even if it is just one line per channel. (often associated with bots). Use of flood or load bots. Harrassment of another player and/or clan. Advertisement of an inappropriate website URL. Use of third-party/add-on programs (hacks) - these include but are not limited to sending bad packets, flooding the server(s), and the use of hack programs.This type of restriction can last up to 2 weeks. Unfortunately, you will have to wait it out or obtain a different IP address from which to play. Please note that we will not provide support for changing your IP address. If you are absolutely certain you did not spam, keep in mind that anyone behind your network, or if your ISP shares your IP address (as in more than one persons are given the same IP address), gets restricted from, you will suffer the penalties along with them. This is the unfortunate disadvantage of using a shared IP address. Also, keep track of siblings and other people with access to your computer and/or network who play on, as they can get you restricted as well. It is also possible that your computer may be infected with a virus that has resulted in the restriction. It is important to realize that these restrictions are not exactly a punishment, but rather that they are necessary for server stability. When you spam, it places a much heavier load on the server and ruins the gameplay experience for everybody. For restrictions other than spam - such as using an invalid CD-Key - you are restricted to prevent abuse - such as stealing someone else's CD-Key via brute-force.Omrakos0 Feb 4, 2014

3h "You were disconnected from Please reconnect" "You were disconnected from Please reconnect" Come on Blizzard support. Plenty of people going through this issue and no one is helping. No 3rd party programs. Randomly happened to me about 24 hours ago when I was just sitting in a game (not exiting fast, or transferring, just sitting in a game). 15 years of playing, never had this issue. This is from a CDKEY purchased and registered on my account.JJ4prez56 3h

4h Diablo 2 installer asking for play CD I apologize if this is a duplicate issue. I have the game key and downloaded the installer from However, after I enter in the key, I'm prompted to insert my play disc.

4h Warcraft 3 downloading stuck at 65% I am trying to download Warcraft 3, but it is stuck at 65%, and not going farther. I have noticed this has been an issue for others, and I have tried deleting the various battle net folders as one person has done, but to no avail.Mew33 4h

5h Fresh install, "Unable to connect to" (D2, LOD) Hi there, I recently bought a second-hand copy of D2+LOD, after not playing for years and years. I installed the game and registered the CD Keys, but I can't get online: the game takes ages on the "Connecting to fastest server" window, and eventually tells me "Unable to connect to" (with something about setting up my internet connection - since I'm typing this on the same machine, I doubt that's the problem. I'm really looking forward to playing this game again, can anyone tell me what's going wrong? Thanks! -PArnhemian0 5h
7h Can't Install or Uninstall So after yet again having problems with the latest update i finally got it working but it seemed like it installed a second instance of wc3. The original was installed on my G drive and it seemed after using repair it made a fresh install on C drive. For a couple days it worked but it stopped working completely. The G drive version kept getting stuck at 65% on update. So after more problems i tried to uninstall the game, had mass problems trying to uninstall, i've followed advice from other blue posts regarding this to just delete the folders, i try to reinstall the game and either get an install stuck at 0% or occasionally i get the update at 65% screen. This is frustrating as hell and it's completely impossible for me to install wc3 now. All down to these stupid patches.Healy4 7h

11h Inactive characters disappeared (D2:LoD) Hi, I'm aware that in Diablo 2, if your online (realm) characters have not been accessed in 90 days, they "expire" - that is, the name is up for grabs for anyone else to use. However, from my past experiences, I was able to recover expired characters by simply clicking on them (given that their name was not taken). I've also lost some characters years ago because I had used common names and I hadn't played in a long while. This is fair and I understand why recovery wasn't possible. I've played a bit of Diablo 2 in the last few months but hadn't re-activated every character and while some of them were due to expire within the next week or so, the ones that had already expired (there were 6, across 3 accounts) were completely gone. Usually, it says "Character expired" under the character and you can just click on them and hope that no one had used the same name - but now they just disappeared completely. I know that they expired because I checked their character files in the ".../Saved Games/Diablo II/USWest" folder. According to the metadata, their last access was between 30/05 and 06/06. I understand that the usual procedure has been to hope that no one had taken their name (I highly doubt anyone has taken these relatively unique names in the span of 2-3 weeks) and then just click on the characters to reactivate them. However, it seems like things are different now - either that or I've encountered a bug (which I think is unlikely, as it looks like other people have had similar issues). If a Blizzard representative could explain to me the new policy, or better yet assist me in recovering my characters, that would be awesome. Cheers.Klogg1 11h

I'm a professional tech trouble shooter, I'm willing to supply trace routes, screen shots of telnet sessions proving ports are open, have literally tried EVERY solution provided in your knowledge base and yet I still cannot start Diablo and play online since your patch. All my items/runes have now been lost to inactivity but I just cant seem to understand why we cant get one response on this subject on the forums despite countless posts.

1d Native fullscreen on Mac OS X High Sierra but no custom keys Hi everybody, I use the script from Malikor from following thread to load the game with the newest version on Mac OS X High Sierra in native fullscreen, but when I start the game in native fullscreen, my custom keys do not load. Ingame the settings for "Use custom keys" is checked, but when I go into a 1on1 custom game against the CPU, there are the standart shortcuts, not my custom QWERT. When I start the game normally, the custom keys load.... does someone have the same problem or a solution for this problem?

1d Warcraft 3 mouse problem on desktop Hello everyone --- I recently downloaded Warcraft 3 Reign of Chaos on both my desktop and my laptop, and I can't wait to play it. It works just fine on my laptop, but it doesn't work so well on my desktop. When I start the game, the mouse cursor is delayed from my actual mouse and it bugs me. The sensitivity is fine in the menu, but then when I start a game, the cursor is still delayed but my sensitivity is reduced drastically, almost making it impossible to play the game. I can barely move my mouse because the sensitivity is so low in game (and my mouse pad is small) and the cursor delay is still present. None of these problems happen on the version on my laptop. Is there a solution for this? If so, what is it? thanks, ImmortanJoeImmortanJoe0 1d

And when I try to open it for second time it gets me this message. I tried also the "Repair" opinion and it gets me to installing the patch even tho I had it installed like moment before and it's stuck on 65%, after like 20 mins it finishes but this thing happens again and this message pops up again and I'm in a loop. I don't know how it happened, from nowhere. Btw I got my game bought on discs. Please help, I'm addicted to this sh!t. HahaBraveheart1 1d

2d Is it possible to recover my Warcraft 3 TFT account? Dear Blizzard. Way back In I think 2003-4 I made a account named "SnaKe_CaKe". Altho I didn't play very activly on it I always made sure to login every now and then before the expire time had run out to make sure I would not lose the account. The sentimental value means a lot to me and today after having problems with the patch I tried to login to renew the expire time. I've done this together with two other accounts and they have all been kept. How ever SnaKe_CaKe seem to have expired and is no longer an account in existens. Is there at possiblity you could help me to recover SnaKe_CaKe on Northrend or has it passed on to the land of cream and crust far beyond this one? best wishes to you all.Mundungus0 2d
2d Warcraft III no longer works After clean update to latest version the game just crashes: Problem signature: Problem Event Name: APPCRASH Application Name: Warcraft III.exe Application Version: Application Timestamp: 5b995220 Fault Module Name: StackHash_a603 Fault Module Version: 6.1.7600.16695 Fault Module Timestamp: 4cc7ab44 Exception Code: c0000374 Exception Offset: 000c35e3 OS Version: 6.1.7600. Locale ID: 2055 Additional Information 1: a603 Additional Information 2: a6035e8f82f86cdd3c1122d2f47da3e3 Additional Information 3: 5849 Additional Information 4: 58496897e46937fc2283f9a6125f7d27 When trying to use an old backup 32-bit Win7 PC after an extended time in the attic the game had first started normally until it found the "update" for "" use..The respective update (which took about 2-3h to download) !@#$up up my perviously good version and the game would no longer start at all. I tried all the "tips" that I found in the forums and the only thing that did change where the phantom errors reported by the laucher (like missing system32 DLLs that where in fact there, not being able to connect to, etc). I repeatedly tried "Repair" which every time WASTED 3h of my time! But still the same %^-*! I finally uninstalled everything and deleted all the folders. I re-installed from scratch, registered my serials so I could uses the web-installer to reinstall FrozenThrone from scratch (again 3h WASTED!!!). The first attempts to then restart the game via the launcher (which I am running in XP SP2 compatibility & admin mode) always reported "Update Complete" with buttons "Repair" and "Launch". But when pressing "Launch" it would restart "Installing WC III (65%)" and then fails after 100% saying "we're having trouble starting". So I started the " launcher.exe" first: Now the "WC III launcher" actually gets past its original error and tries to start the "WC III.exe" which now ALWAYS crashes with the above "Problem signature". I AM SICK AND TIRED OF THE GREEN BANANA PRE_ALPHA VERSIONS THAT BLIZZARD HAS BEEN SHOVING DOWN MY THROAT IN RECENT YEARS. 10 YEARS AGO THIS USED TO BE A GOOD GAME BUT THE INCOMPETENCE THAT SEEMS TO MEANWHILE HAVE TAKEN OVER IS JUST PAST "ANNOYING" (insert the worst swearwords that you can think of here - and it will still not do justice how I really feel about this POS).McDibbler0 2d
2d Mismanagement of D2 Why are you banning people all the time? No one even plays anymore because you banned them all. D2 is a wasteland now, it used to be a thriving community before all the bans happeend. Who is it that is Mismanaging D2? Someone needs to get to the bottom of it.Demonicon2 2d
2d Checking version... I bought Diablo 2 and Diablo 2 Lord of Destruction from the official Blizzard website, installed them on my computer. Once I tried to connect to battlenet, it updates the version as latest one. After I updates the version, I clicked battlenet again, and it keeps showing me "checking version...." window and does not let me log in (failed to connect to battlenet. ) What the hell is happening on this game? I just bought the games, but I cannot connect to Battlenet? I tried to open the program with administration mode, but it is still not working at all. How can I fix this problem?Camelize0 2d

3d Wrongful ban Okay, I purchased diablo 2 on Wednesday September 12th, I downloaded the game, and incorrectly entered the cd key, it said the cd was invalid. I'm pretty sure it was because I used the lod key for the regular game disk. I corrected it and it worked. Proceeded to download the lod expansion and entered the key. Worked. First time. I havent even had the computer for a month. When I entered the game I started a single player character to get the feel for the game. About an hour or so later, I attempted to play online. It was stuck at checking version. Then it said battle net is not responding. So I proceeded to look a few things up and they told me to close some back ground programs. I tried an it still failed. So I made a ticket. And they told me to call the ISP and check the ip. And see if it was a buisness or education ip and thay was not the issue. Then the game master proceeded to tell me that it was a location ban? And thay someone in the last with this connection could have hacked or botted, like I said. I never even had a chance to make a battle net account on diablo. I am willing to do whatever I need to, to get this fixed. I will change my ip and repurchase the game if this is something thay could work. Please respond and help me. Thank you in advance.BubbaB035 3d
