1. You may have incorrect configuration

See this guide to make sure you have entered the correct information. If you could host earlier, but now cannot, it may be that your external IP address has changed, and you will need to enter the new one in the configuration screen.

2. Incoming connections on port 17011 may be blocked

In order to host on WormNET you must be able to recieve data through port 17011. If you have firewall software on your computer, or a router, it might be blocking this port. See this guide and this guide for details on how you can correct the problem.

3. You may be on a company network

If you are using an office or university network, they might be blocking port 17011 for security. Contact the IT department.
