Default Possible workaround

Same issue, I think I found a workaround.

Didn't work: DMZ, port forwarding, rebooting, etc.
Got the quickmatch listings as mentioned by previous poster.

Try this:
Go to main menu -> Network Options
select 'Online Invite Only' (instead of friends only)

now try to invite/play. Worked for my group of three.

We were also getting host timeouts / kicks when the host alt-tabbed in one of our trials - be aware.

I have had a similar problem on PC. A friend of mine and I have tried pretty much everything I can think of to fix the co-op joining problem. I have port forwarded (steam ports), tried to open NAT as much as possible (on both of our routers), DMZ'd our PCs, we've tried Hamachi, changing the MTU in our routers (supposedly to open NAT some.) So far I have not been able to connect to him and he has not been able to connect to me. Sometimes I can get a server list of about 5 - 20 servers, but that usually takes time and he has not been able to get any servers (but it seems to be a 1/10 chance to actually populate the server list.)

With all of this being said though, we were both able to connect to a friend of ours and play with him, but we would like to be able to play with just the two of us since the guy we could connect to has to work a lot. Though I've yet to connect to anyone else other than him.

I have tried literally everything I can think of with the router and network configuration on our PCs, I have no idea what else to do and hope there will be some sort of fix released soon..

Guys! I created an account just to post this. Please just download Hamachi (a Virtual private network creator). And then set your game up as a LAN. Hamachi is simple and painless to use.

[enter link here] (im not allowed to post links)

download the unmanaged version

Set your computer name

get one person to host the VPN

tell others in your party the VPN password and name

In BL2, Set Network settings to LAN only

... PROFIT

Tunngle is much easier to use.

Hello everyone,
Initially my friends and I had this trouble that one of the 3 of us cannot join anyone game nor we can join theirs. We did a lot of forum searching and testing after a bunch of edits on router and network configuration we were able to connect together.

We don't really know which item fixed the issue but this is what we did and hope this will help some people.
-We saw internal IP address should be 192.168.1.x the one had issue was 192.168.2.x and we saw somewhere posted that 192.168.1.x was ideal.
-forward the recommend ports I am unsure the other one but one group was the 7778 and other 2-something on UDP/TCP
-Did not allow DCHP assign our IPs so we went to network adapter and made it non-changing.
- I disabled my AVG anti-virus also but again i was not the person that had issue connecting or other connecting to me.

so all of us did the following... forward ports, make sure 192.168.1.x, non-DCHP assigned IP, and disable ANtivirus.

Hope this helps. If this corrects anyone please inform me.

Thanks.

Or Tungle, or any VPN software, doesn't matter. If you don't want to play around with port forwarding this is the answer.

The whole point of steam for matchmaking was to make it so you don't need to forward ports to host. People were able to host before an update without doing so and once steam gets out a fix you wont have to again.
