If you are behind a router the host must formard port 21000 to the host machine.

Also any firewalls must permit PF through.

As for ubi.com.If you have Forgotten Battles(or maybe aep) there should be an install ubi.com on the cd.

If not it is somewhere on the ubi.site.It is rather buried and takes me awhile to find it.

An easier way is to go to Ubi.com and go to the play game section.Then try and join a game .It will tell you you do not have the game service software.Would you like to install it.Just say yes.Also someone else here might have a more direct link.
