Every Time I host a game my friend gets this error:

Error: the game session is no longer available

And vice versa

I host the game by going on Host Online Then
I change the session to nazi zombies
I rename the game
I leave the other options default and I press ok
I then invite my friend and he get the aforementioned error and vice versa.

We both use the disc version of [email protected]

All help is appreciated Thank You

I have finally found the solution to this problem!
Steps to get Error: the game session is no longer available Fixed
This method is called Port Forwarding and it is used to open a port so that your router firewall does not block world at war

  • Find your IP address, then copy and paste it into your internet browser URL
  • A page with your Internet service provider will come up and will ask for username and password which can be found on the bottom of your router
  • Once you logged in, go to advanced then security then port forwarding and add a new port. (this bit will vary for everyone depending on your provider but its the same sort of thing though)
  • Name it anything like COD5-1 - Type should be TCP & UDP - Start and finish port should be 3074
  • Save it then Make another new port Name: COD5-2 - Type: TCP & UDP - Start and Finish port: 28960 (If it asks for an IP put the IP your gaming pc is using)
  • Save It and you should be done!!!

Go on world at war and enjoy!
I thought I would write the solution to help someone cause the thread on ZM from years ago still has not got a proper solution! No need for lan fix or that add spamming bullsh*t tunngle
Hope this Helps!!!
Just in time for ORIBIT :D

This worked perfectly! Thanks for posting the solution, I saw port forwarding on YouTube but didn't think that would solve it but apparently it does.
