Let’s talk about them in detail.
1]Check your internet connection
Needless to say, you need a decent amount of bandwidth to play an online game. If you do not have a proper internet connection, there is a high chance that the error code in question will appear. So, use one free internet speed tester to find out your bandwidth. If the Internet speed is slow, restart your router and follow the given steps to do the same.
- Turn off the router.
- Disconnect all cables and wait a minute for the capacitor to discharge.
- Plug the cables back in and turn on the router.
If that doesn’t solve the problem, contact your ISP and ask them to fix the problem.
2]Check Epic Games Server Status
One of the things you should do before fixing a network problem is to check if the problem can actually be fixed. You need this if the Epic Games server is down or under maintenance. In case it doesn’t work, the only thing you can do is wait for the engineers to actually fix the problem and make it work. To find out the server status, you can go to status.epicgames.com or use one of the free fall detectors from the list.
3]Temporarily disable your firewall or add Epic Games to the exceptions list.
Any non-Microsoft application that connects to a server has a high chance of being blacklisted by a third-party antivirus or even Windows Defender when trying to connect to the server. This problem is very common in game launchers like Epic Games, Steam and GoG when they try to connect to their server. In order to fix this problem, you need to either allow Epic Game through the firewall or disable the defender, we do not recommend that you do the latter as it leaves your system vulnerable to viruses and malware. So, to allow Epic Game Launcher through the firewall, try the following steps.
- seek out Windows Security from start menu.
- go to Firewall & network protection.
- Press Allow a game through firewall.
- Press Change Settings
- Add any Epic Games related service via Public and private networks.
Finally, open the game and see if it launches. Hope this helps you.
4]Unblock your network ports
Network ports are used by Epic Games for communication as certain types of data are transferred through them. If the port is blocked, the communication channel will not be formed and you will see the corresponding error code. To fix this problem, you need to check if any port is blocked and if there is a blocked port, unblock it to fix the problem.
So, first of all, let’s find the IP you need to login to set up port forwarding. Open Command Prompt as an administrator. Type the following command and press Enter.
You will see the default gateway and IPv4, write them down somewhere as they will be used later.
Paste the default gateway into your browser and click Enter. Now enter your username and password. Find Port Forwardingand make sure it is enabled and different from Port Triggeringwhich should be disabled.
Finally, enter the ports and port ranges below with the correct protocol and local IP we asked you to take note of earlier.
80 (TCP/UDP), 433 (TCP), 443 (TCP), 3478 (TCP/UDP), 3479 (TCP/UDP), 5060 (TCP/UDP), 5062 (TCP/UDP), 5222 (TCP), 6250 (TCP/UDP), and 12000-65000 (TCP/UDP)
If you don’t want to do all of this, or can’t log in to your default gateway, contact your ISP for the same.
5]Clear Epic Games App Local Data
You may also see the corresponding error code if the Epic Games app data is corrupted. So let’s clear the app’s local data or cache and see if that works.
- Open Run To Win+Rtype %localappdata%, and hit Enter.
- go to Epic Games Launcher > Saved.
- Delete the web cache folder.
Open the Epic Games Launcher again and sign in. Finally, try launching the game that was giving you problems, it should run normally this time.
