If he's using version 1.3 or ealier of CoD, then he can only connect to 1.3 or ealier CoD servers which don't have PB, so that's not his problem.

It could be two things:

1) He's being kicked for something specific in his setup that pb doesn't like. To solve the problem he will need to post the EXACT error message he gets.

2) His pb might be out of date. All he needs to do is download the pbweb.exe file, put it in his /main/pb folder, and run it to do the update. For more info, see here:
