CANT OPEN SOCKET

I got rust on steam and when I attempt to open it, it says “Could Not Create Socket”. I payed £14.99 for it and I am desperate to get it working

Try


ipconfig/flushdns

and after it


netsh winsock reset

all this commands must be run with system admin privileges

ive tried both and its still not working

Do you have a firewall or antivirus suite installed? If so, what is it?

Also, after you type the above commands, specifically the netsh winsock reset, reboot your computer first if you have not already.

I DISABLED BOTH OF MY FIREWALLS, ALSO SORRY FOR THE LATE REPLY

What’s the name of the firewall you have installed? (I assume the other is the built-in Windows firewall; but if you really did install two, please confirm and name them both)

Kaspersky is my downloaded firewall

I suggest making sure Kaspersky has specific exceptions set for Rust.exe, RustClient.exe, and EasyAntiCheat.exe, all in the Rust folder inside Steam.

it still doesn’t work
