Red Alert - Wait for connections......

Question

Posted (edited)

HI there,
I am absolutely new here and I have an issue I hope some experts here can help me with.

I am trying to play some matches Red Alert with CnCNet.
After the game starts from the CnCNet client , I see the game but it is stopped and a countdown starts.
It says: Waiting for connections......

Time Allowed: 20 seconds
Press ESC to cancel

Screenshot

After 20 seconds the game ends and I get back to the CnCNet client..
I tried to whitlist cncnet and ra95 to the firewall, I tried to disable the firewall, both things didnt help.
Why? How? 

-Thanks

Did you get a popup that asks if Red Alert can access the network?

You mean from windows? Then yes, I granted it access!

Did you grant it access to private networks and public networks?

Well, it is not that! I double checked and both files are granted access private and public. What else can it be?
Also I checked with Tiberian Sun and can play this game just fine.

      Had cncnet open. Then it closed. Tried relaunching and it says cannot open because of virus or unwanted file. Have the installer, so tried that, and it said after going through the process, getting all the updates and extracting that it was missing a file couldnt complete the action. 
       
      Cant download new installer because it says virus detected/unwanted file.
      Any help would be appreciated

      It is a really shame but I have to report that in China there are many guys cheating in mutiplayer games in Mental Omega on CnCNet. This makes many players fear to join a pubilc game lobby.The situation is not good at all.Are there any ways to prevent cheating?
      I have tried one cheat tool. It has many cheat functions but most of them can not function in mutiplayer games.I think it must be the result of the hard working of the WestWood studio and you CnCNet groups to eradicate cheating.
      However,there are still a few functions that still works.The cheat tool, which seems to cheat through editing the data in computer's memory,can still do such things:
      1.Change the sight of the unit you select,then make most of the shroud removed.
        How much shroud one player has removed seems won't sync with other players so it won't cause sync error?
      2.Break the limits of building structures. That's to say, cheaters can build everywhere.
        Maybe the judgement on building structures is local and won't cause sync error?
      3.Break the limits of tech level or other things to produce a unit.
        I have no idea how it managed to do this,but the cheater can build every units registered in ini files,ignoring building limits.

      Meanwhile,players with modified ini files seem still able to start games with others and the warning "the player modified his game" seems appear for everyone,including innocent ones.We players have no idea when join in a public game lobby.
      Cheat problems are serious nowadays in Mental Omega.Are there any ways to prevent these kinds of cheating? We players need your technical help.
