I'm trying to direct connect with a friend, like we have done during early access. We are now getting a NATPunch (66) error when we try to join each other.

Tried firewall rules, disabling AV, VPNs, public lobby instead of direct connect. Any suggestions?

Hi, im gonna leave this comment here because ive been having trouble with the same exact error with a friend we get the nat punch 66 error i hope someone has a solution
This happens when the game versions differ. Steam will push and update while GOG is still waiting on it. Will result in either NATpunch 62 or NATpunch 66.

Im having the same issue but my friends are on steam, they both are able to direct connect to each other but when I try to connect to any of them it gives the natpunch error, they also get it if Im the one hosting. I've tried many things from the internet but so far no luck.

did you find any solution?

Where did you put the firewall rules in? You should disable the Windows firewall, and open up the ports in your router firewall, and not in Windows firewall. This worked for me. It is a bit buggy though, the friend on steam who is hosting the game has my name. Every time it is his turn it says its my turn lol.

These are the ports:

TCP: 27015, 27036
UDP: 27015, 27031-27036

I'm having the same problem Natpunch 66
We tried everything from direct connect, to lobby, nothing works.
Hello!

I ran into the same issue in Divinity Original Sin 2 DE. The game was running smoothly yesterday, but when I attempted to connect to my friend's game this evening using the Direct Connect code, I encountered the following error message: "Connecting to NATpunch server failed. Connecting via online wasn't successful either."

I managed to resolve the problem by performing a verification and repair process for the game in GOG. To do this, follow these steps:

1. Select the game in your GOG library.
2. Click on the settings menu at the top (located next to the play button).
3. Choose "Manage installation."
4. Then, select "Verify / Repair."

Try this, maybe it will also work for BG3.

If you purchased the game on Steam, you can try repairing it through the Steam platform.
Now we are in 2024 and NATpunch (66) still persists. Why can't GoG just fix their shit?

It happened to me as well.
I purchased BG3 on GOG and I can't play with all my friends on Steam.
Natpunch 66. We have tried everything for hours.

I requested a refund.
Today I contacted my ISP.
I forwarded the ports yesterday as recommended by Larian but there was still some block.
A tech solved it. So I can play with friends who purchased BG3 on Steam. I will no longer ask for a refund.

Good ending.
