How do I add firewall permissions for Orcs Must Die! Unchained?

There are typically three kinds of firewalls that may affect your connection to the game. Depending on your circumstances, you may have to add or request permissions for Orcs Must Die! Unchained for each of these.

If you are checking if your firewall is the reason you cannot play the game, we recommend disabling it first to verify the firewall is the cause.

Software Firewall

These are the most common. Some examples are Windows Defender and Norton Security.

Steps:

1. Check the website for the software firewall you have. They will have instructions on how to add an exception for specific programs.

2. Create an exception for the following 4 executables:

[drive and path]:\OMDU\Binaries\Win32\Spitfiregame.exe

[drive and path]:\OMDU\Binaries\Win64\Spitfiregame.exe

[drive and path]:\OMDU\Dashboard\Bin\Spitfiredashboard.exe

[drive and path]:\OMDU\OMDU.exe

3. You may need to restart your computer for this to take effect.

4. If this doesn't allow the traffic you will also need to allow specific ports. Please consult the software firewall's creator for instructions on how to allow ports. (Windows Defender requires this.)

5. Allow the following ports:

Outgoing TCP: 2302

Outgoing UDP: 7000-32768

6. You may need to restart your computer for this to take effect.

Hardware Firewall

These are generally used by companies and tech-savy players. Cisco and Netgear are some common providers.

Steps:

1. Check the instructions for the hardware firewall you have. They will have instructions on how to allow specific ports.

2. Allow the following ports:

Outgoing TCP: 2302

Outgoing UDP: 7000-32768

3. You may need to restart your firewall and router for this to take effect.

ISP Firewall

Internet Service Providers can also provide firewalls. Most universities have this kind of firewall.

Steps:

1. Consult with the ISP to determine what kind of content is blocked. For a school, the department in charge of this is usually called something like: IT Help Center, Technical Support and Services, or a Help Desk.

2. They may be able to provide you with an exception, or a work around. If they do not you may not be able to play while using their internet service.
