I have had no problems in the past but all of a sudden, last night I could not get any servers on COD and United Offensive. It is coming up with the words "Waiting to connect to the main server" or something like that.
I know the obvious answer is the firewall, but i turned all that off and it made no difference.
I am behind a linksys Router with its own firewall, but I have tried to play with the firewall on and off.
As I say, there have been no problems before. The only other 2 things i can think of, is for some reason, i need to open ports now (What are they ????) Or the servers are down for some people. I say some people because mates of mine were playing when i couldn't.
I have tried again today with no luck
Any thoughts please ???
It still isn't working but i have tried it after connecting without my router in place and still does not work. This is either an issue with the game and i will re-install, or the connection between the servers and me is having problems.
Any thoughts ??

try using a server client like XFire or All Seeing Eye. they are usually way better than the games built in server client.
They ae free to download
I have sorted it.
Stupid as this may seem, the game will not load any servers unless i have a firewall ON.
Not sure if this is true, but it is as if the game is set up to not go out on the internet unless there is a firewall protection on.
ANyway all sorted
im having same problem. im useless with computers so if anyone can help me it will be greatly appreciated
That heppened to me before, i just waited and the servers loaded after a little while, also you might want to check if you have an internet connection.
An end has a start.

Ensure that any firewall software you have allows codmp access to the internet.
