I've just recently purchased the Starbound Beta and I am unable to connect to my friend's server. However, when I borrow my neighbor's internet, it works perfectly. This led me to believe there must be a problem with the router (firewall block, or something of the sort). The ports that the game uses are 21025-21027 TCP & UDP. Is there some kind of integrated firewall that blocks certain types of connections? If so, how can I disable it?

I know of no such restriction or firewall activity in the Almond that would be causing this.  Have you enabled this required Port-Forwarding within the  Almond WebUI?

What does your Port Forwarding (Forwarded Ports) screen look like?
