Couldn't allocate any client ip address...

  • Couldn't allocate any client ip address...

    Hi,

    I just started Dota2 and couldn't connect to any server, be practice or watch I just cannot connect, when I try to join it tells me that it couldn't allocate any port on my ip

    What the f....?!

    I even opened the ports on my router for Dota2


    Or maybe the patching is not finished? I can't find a thread about that.

    Any idea?

    Ok so I tried restarting Steam, the whole computer and even redownloading Dota, nothing worked so far

    I cant even get the console info as when I try to access a server the game instantly closes and only says:
    "Couldn't allocate any client ip port, tried 1 addresses"

    Unless there's a way to find the console outside of the game, I cannot help you anymore on this





    *Edit:

    Ok so, under the advice of CvP I tried inputting -dev and now the game works...

    I just simply changed -console to -dev


    I'm not exactly sure where did this bug come from but if I can be of any assistance to locate it just let me know how

      This message means the game couldn't open a UDP port. I'm not sure how -dev would change this. Do you have any restricted firewall software running?

        Actually yes, I have a software firewall but prior to this patch it never made any problem, also I have a router, I already forwarded a port range in both TCP and UDP just in case, those were given to me on this forum.

        I have no idea what changed when I input -dev as this shouldn't help with the connection, but it's right when I restarted the game and changed the -console to -dev that the bug cleared, so it must come from that.


        I use Comodo Firewall (I created exceptions for Dota2 so it can run without any block at all)

          You do not need to forward any ports for Dota 2. It's all played on dedicated servers you connect to and no one every connects to your client.

            Good to know.

            On another note, I tried changing it back to -console and it works fine now, so I have no idea what this bug did... where did it come from and why...

            Sorry can't help you any more on that matter, let's hope it was from my computer and doesn't appear anymore =)

              Ok so after today's patching, it happened again, I had to change the -console to -dev again to fix it...

              I still have the crash dump if you want it I can upload it

                Had the same problem. Couldn't play at all because the game kept shutting down and I got the "couldn't allocate IP"-message. I also have COMODO, so I think that's the issue. I think COMODO tries to isolate the program, and doesn't allow it to connect properly. Because when I did what Mataur did, and put "-dev" I got the pop-up that COMODO was trying to isolate it, so I pressed "don't isolate again", restarted, and it worked.
