Login server timed out
hi all,

for 2 hours or so i cannot log in to STO. The server dropped me out and since i get an error message saying connection to the login server timed out.

Anyone experiencing something like this? I'm from Hungary, EU.

I have had this type of problem now for better than two weeks. Started about the time Season 4 came out, but also at the time my Firewall SW was Up-Graded to the newest version.

I would first Time Out on the Game Server each time I tried to enter a mission. (any Loading Screen)
After the initial Time Out on GS, it would Time Out on the Log In Server.
Any Attempt to Log In quickly would then be met with Time Out on the Account Server.

I have Bounced back and forth between CS at Cryptic, (They have been great, [to me anyway]), and the CS at my FW Provider.

Today, I turned off my Provider FW, and Turned on the Windows FW. When I started the game, I had to minimize it to click on the Allow Button ONCE, and was able to play freely again after that.

My suggestion for being Timed Out is to start with Firewall Permissions.

Just reinstalled, Launcher crashing and "Connection to account server timed out"
Hello, I just reinstalled after a very long hiatus. I tried running the launcher and it just crashes with no error message. I also tried launching the client and it runs fine but then says "connection to account server timed out" when trying to log in.

It says there is supposed to be maintenance in about 2 hours, but I don't know why my launcher would crash and have a green light next to where it says server status.

How about you guys disable your firewall then directly connect to your modem and test. I'll bet after you do that you'll be able to login.
