I’m Having Trouble Connecting to Jackbox Servers

If your game is having trouble making and maintaining a connection to our servers, here are a few common solutions you can try:

  1. Close the game down and reopen it
  2. Uninstall the game and then reinstall it
  3. Turn your Console, Computer, or Set-top box off for 1-2 minutes, then turn it back on
  4. Reboot your router

If you are using a computer, you may need to disable your antivirus software and/or your firewall to allow your game to connect to the internet.

And If your antivirus software has already quarantined your game, you’ll need to go into that antivirus’s settings and un-quarantine it.

If none of those steps work, make sure that the following ports are open on your firewall and router: 80, 443, 843, 38202, 38203

You can test the status of those ports here:

To open those ports on your firewall, reference this article. Choose your OS from the drop-down menu:

To open those ports on your router, google the brand of router you have. You should find straightforward instructions on how to access that brand of router’s administration page, and how to open ports while you’re there.


And as always, you can submit a support ticket here for additional help:

    This is worthless. None of this helped me figure out a problem, I still can't connect to the servers and every time I make a support ticket, I just get told this EXACT same information. FUCKING FIX THIS
