Ports in router: 2302

If you fail to connect check following:
   Firewalls in router & Windows
   Ports in router
   Blocking by programme such as Norton
   Check "multicast" setting (see below)


Multicast  server setting

Multicast is the ability of VBS3 to reduce the strain on a server caused by a large number of clients. If you are trying to connect a remote VBS client across a WAN to a dedicated server, this article will show how. At present multicast only works over LAN. If attempting to use multicast "over the internet" or through WAN settings, the error "multicast connection rejected" will come back. Multicast is enabled in VBS3 by default.

To remove Multicast:
   VBS Launcher
   VBS3 tab
   Network tab
   Multicast option: remove the X
   Launch

Red and Yellow Link Icon

The red link icon means that there is a significant de synchronisation between the server and the client workstation. At the start of the mission its normal, but later on in the mission it normally indicates that the machines receiving updates that are older than a set limit.

green
- within margin.
yellow - little bit out of margin
red - really late arriving packets.

Occasional red links are perfectly normal and nothing to worry about. If the workstation is dropping out, or you are seeing considerable red link icons across the workstations in the scenario, you may have a network issue. (i.e. chatty NIC)

 
If you aren't having issues and it's just appearing you could use the startup parameter -MinErrLevel = 6 ;   and that will hide the chains from showing up.
