Are you behind a firewall?
If you can't join there has to be something blocking the ports needed on your end.
Not sure of my DreamPi version, I downloaded it about 2-3 weeks ago, so it should be recent. I'll check and set up a new SD card though.
It does feel like it should be a blocked port somewhere, but I've tried every combination of port forwarding without DMZ and vice versa, with ample reboots of the router, system and Pi, all with the same result (and firewall completely down with no other devices on the network other than the Pi connected via ethernet).
That's why I think my next step will be to come up with a way to try this on a completely different ISP and router setup to eliminate any configuration gremlins there. It's something I want to figure out anyway to be able to have two dreamcasts locally be able to both connect to play online games head to head. Currently trying on Fios and the standard Actiontec router for reference.
Thanks again for the support
