I downloaded Unreal Engine last month and I have never been able to get it to work. It always told me it was unable to connect,

I figured maybe it was down or something but even today, it is the same message.
Am I missing something here? Do I have to do something else to get it to go online?

Probably need to allow it through your firewall.

Make sure that you have allowed the launcher through your firewall, and make sure that links to Epic Games related sites are working, this may help rule out their servers being blocked.

Make sure to take a look at this thread:!-Connection-to-server-failed :slight_smile:

Thanks all for the replies.
The firewall as already allowing it to pass so I tried the “-http=wininet”
Yes, that did work~ Thanks again.
