Disconnected: Connection Attempt Failed

Hello all,

I cannot seem to connect to any servers in Rust whatsover. Every one attempts to connect for about 5 seconds, then displays the message: “Disconnected: Connection Attempt Failed”. I’ve done some scouring, and I want to see if anyone else can offer some advice on what I can do.

Attempted methods:

  • Reinstalled game
  • Opened port 28015 (TCP/UDP)
  • Restarted router
  • Ensured no beta participation in Steam
  • Reduced graphics quality to minimum
  • Ran as Administrator
  • Connected using “Client.connect”

None have worked.

My basic computer specs:

Windows 7 64-Bit
Nvidia Geforce GTX 960
Intel Core i5-3570K
