I tried logging into the Epic Games Launcher and I get the error “Unable to reach the Epic Servers at this time”, and when I try to sign in I get “Connection to the server failed”?
I added " -http=wininet" in the Epic Games Launcher properties target field to no avail, nor does Run as Administrator work. I also added those lines of code provided in the troubleshoot to my base.ini and am not running on a proxy server. Nothing. Any advice or help would be great!
I had the same problem and none of the posted solutions fixed it. So I opened port 5222 in my firewall and now it works fine.
I recommend checking your 5222 Port status, you can do so here, check to see if your port is open, if the port is open and you still receive the error with the launcher its not that’s the problem.
If you see the port is closed you can open it by going to “Windows Firewall with Advanced Security” Then click “Advanced Settings”, then click inbound rules on the left. Then click create “New Rule…” select port as the new rule when prompted and enter port 5222, and label it UE4. That should fix the problem, it worked for me in Win10.
