    I have done everything that i had to do at *Download & Install Instructions* and *How To Connect* but i'm still getting *Fetching server list* somehow...

    I have installed Westwood Shared Internet Components and my Red Alert 2 is version 1.006

    I assume these host addresses are correct at the moment, since i can ping this address and it's alive

    78.96.138.238 servserv.westwood.com
    78.96.138.238 apiregister.westwood.com
    78.96.138.238 irc.westwood.com
    78.96.138.238 gameres.westwood.com

    I have added these to the hosts file on the last line

    The only thing i didnt do is running * Europe Diablo's PVPGN WOL Installer* since the download link is down and i cannot find it with google, that program is used to add the hosts addresses automaticly right? Or did i get that part wrong?

    I installed Red Alert 2 with the installer for *Command & Conquer The First Decade*
    I also installed *The First Decade: Unofficial Patch 1.03*


    Now i'm not sure what the problem may be, i'm hoping someone on this forum may have a clue?

    Thanks for the reply!

    I was able to connect on the new IP, but it was kind of tricky to make an new account with all the errors i got at first, but i have succesfully made one.

    The errors i got around are as follows:
    1: Requesting Nickname
    2: Could not connect to Westwood Online
    3: Requesting new login...
    4: Unknown Error

    I have made a complete guide for future new players, i hope it wil be usefull to them!

    Thanks for that Rinaldo. I've made your thread sticky.
