Originally posted by djiezes:Well, I've asked as well. They said the server were down on 30/12/12 and are up again now.However, the problem persists. I've tried opening all the mentioned ports on my router (ports: 1000, 9103, 14155, 14156, 3074), but to no avail. I've checked my firewall settings, but it's configured correctly. I've been digging into log files in the ubisoft game launcher folder in program files and found consistent mentions of http error code 403 : this means there is a connection to a server, but it forbids access. So I notified Ubisoft support and am awaiting an answer and solution now. I'll keep you up to date.
Originally posted by djiezes:Well, they replied and said I had to delete the hosts file (in c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc), but that did not solve the issue for me. (I knew it wouldn't, cause I had tried this earlier based on some forum post somewhere). Anyway, I contacted them again and am awaiting a real solution now.

So then I asked for the umpteenth time to resolve the issue. How hard can it be to give me only access? There's nothing weird going on with my pc or internet connection. The only thing I've learned so far is not to buy Ubisoft games if you want to play them online, or with a gamepad. Neither works ...
Originally posted by djiezes:You won't believe this, but my support ticket is still going on. It's been over 2 months now, it started in 2012 actually.I finally got a working driver version. Well, working ... I mean I got a version of Driver that I can play online ... They gave me a new key and I had to create a new uplay account. Redownload 8GB, reinstall the game, reinstall uplay launcher, ... . And that is after I alrady had to do each one of steps once, twice or even more separately. Now I can get online. Though I still cannot unlock the extra challenges, receive uplay credits, play it with my original uplay account or play it with a gamepad attached to my system. Last thing they said is: you cannot copy savegames from one uplay account to another. So then I googled and did it anyway ... Because before that I had to restart Driver to either play it online (start it from one uplay account) or play the story mission (the other uplay account). I'm ... speechless.
