Redalert update timing out. Can't update, can't play

Question

Checking for updates screen appears and does nothing.

Then I get a dialog box that says:
"Update failed... Please check your connection, Anti-Virus and Firewall settings!
The operation has timed out"

I have turned off the virus and firewall and the same thing happens.

Funkyfresh helped me a few weeks ago with the last update.
If memory serves, he gave me a direct link but I can't remember exactly.
I have already tried http://downloads.cncnet.org/updates/cncnet5/CnCNet5Version.txt and http://downloads.cncnet.org/updates/cncnet5/ and https://downloads.cncnet.org/updates/cncnet5/ with no love (403 Forbidden).

Also while joining a game with a map that I don't have, it fails to download the new map so I can't play on any new maps either.


Please help.

Don't really have a solution for your problem yet, but I added another workaround for you so you can continue playing until the problem is fixed.

Type this in the game lobby and then restart it:

/install doug2

Yeah the map download issue is probably the same as the one from the updater. I don't really know what it's about though since you're the only one having that issue...

 

You can also workaround the map problem by downloading the maps manually from here

http://mapdb.cncnet.org/search.php?game=ra&age=0&search=gold rush

 

You can replace the  "gold rush" at the end of the url with something else to search for a specific map, download the .zip and extract it into your game folder.

      Took a while, but I finally finished a full conversion mod for the original Red Alert. 
      Able Archer is to portray how Red Alert would have played out in the 1980s. I tried to make it as realistic as possible with the limited engine.
      Original campaign works, as do most of the extra missions. Ant missions are strange, as ant units are used for regular buildable units.
       
      C&C Red Alert Able Archer is confirmed to work with C&C The First Decade with TFD 1.03 rev4. 
      Red Alert's version should be 3.03. It may work with other versions of the game, but may encounter bugs.
      -Simply unzip the archive into your Red Alert folder. Make sure to backup existing EXPAND2.mix, hires1.mix, rules.ini, and aftrmath.ini.
       
      PATCH 1.1 has been released, please scroll down.
       
      Known bugs:
      Game crashes when loading more than one game. Simply restart the game and you can load another save.
      Transport Helicopters will attempt to leave the map when Spetsnaz board them. This is hard coded.
      Graphics Credits: AchromicWhite, ROB, Tschokky, Westwood Studios.
      If I forgot to credit you, please let me know so I can add you here.

      Hi, 
      Trying to join multiplayer game of Red Alert. Lobby window opens, but I am stuck with connecting.
       * Connecting... (takes up to 1minute)
      No matter how long I wait, nothing happens. And I get no hint why connection is not successful. I have gone though windows firewall settings, and even disabled firewall completely. Still no luck. App can download game files normally, and I can also play skirmish with no issues.
      How to get connected to lobby? Or where to look next?
      Platform: Win 10 running on vmware fusion on top of OSX.

      Hi I am a progamming hobbyist and a Command and Conquer enthusiast.
       
      I was wondering how I might go about joining the team of keeping this game and community vibrant.
      I would be most interested in working on things related to Red Alert and also the Game client
