    What ports are you using? Without details I’m guessing that you don’t have enough gap between them. I’d suggest having a minimum 100 difference eg
    Player1 54397 & 64297
    Player2 54297 & 64197
    Player3 54197 & 64097
    Etc etc

    Using the example ports above, you’d then need to open/forward the following ports on your router;
    TCP & UDP 54397, 54297, and 54197
    TCP 64297, 64197, & 64097
    UDP 64298, 64299, 64198, 64199, 64098, & 64099
    Easy peasy :D

    Steam/rF2 use those(dunno for what though) they are always the two port numbers above the http port in the multiplayer.json file ie if http port is 64297, then UDP 64298 and 64299 are required to be opened/forwarded.
