We know. If your account wasn't properly activated, you wouldn't be able to post here in the first place :P

Define nothing happens. Something must happen, but what? Do you get an error message, the game freezes and you must force close it, or what else?

Hello,
I am new to forums and tried to find a post which described my problem, but I was not able to find one.
I also want to apologize for any wrong grammar or wrong spelling in advance.
So I have the problem that every time I try to connect to any server (multiplayer) the Game shows me a loading screen and gives me the error message "Error Connection failed: Connection refused". When I try to connect to the add-ons server it gives me the error message "Error Remote host disconnected". I downloaded "Battle for Wesnoth" through Steam. I have the suspicion that it has something to do with that.
Thank you for taking your time to read my request for help.

That should be an error with your Internet, however I am not sure. Is your Internet stable?

The steam version works just the same.

I cannot find any connection from the IP you used to connect to the forum in the server logs of the add-on and mp servers. So as EarthCake mentioned it's an issue with your connection. Are you behind some firewall or so? It seems odd that you can connect to the webserver on wesnoth.org but not other ports.
