Exclamation Error: Could not connect to host

I am trying to connect with one person on my friends list. When either of us try to accept the invitation we get "Could not connect to host." I thought I might have to level up. I now have a level 4 and still have the same issues connecting to the host.

I tried to host a Public game and others joined my game no problem.

Anyone else experiencing this problem with the PS3 version?

Tech Support, any help would be greatly appreciated.



It appears the PC has a similar issue:

Solved:

Both PS3 were put into the DMZ and solved the issue.

Oh God this does not sound good, sounds like the netcode for the game is strict. This is going to be a nightmare when the EU version is released.

I have set my PS3 to a static IP address and put it in the DMZ and still can not connect to invite games. What is next?

Try contacting Gearbox you're not the only person experiencing this, the more people who report it the more likely that a fix will be made available.

Yeah, same thing happened to me and my friend today.

What was weird about it was, that we at one point were able to play. After I went to the PS3 OS (quit the game) and accepted the invitation from there, and when the game started, it connected beautifully. This only worked that one time though. So it seemed to be completely random.

We really need a fix / reason for this connectivity issue.

I am unable to connect to my friend nor him connect to me! This has been an ongoing issue and no word from gearbox or whoever made this game. We need an acknowledgement letting us know that they are working on this! Step up gearbox.
