WHEN YOU PUT A DISK IN AND IT MAKES YOU DOWNLOAD ORIGIN, DOWNLOAD IT STRAIGHT FROM THE INTERNET INSTEAD. I HAVE WINDOWS 8 AND THE PRE LOADED VERSION OF ORIGIN IS FOR WINDOWS 7 ONLY.

Get your **bleep**ing **bleep** together EA. I have no where near the amount of problems with Steam. I pay for games through your service and I can't even **bleep**ing play them.

I have done what you said and it has come up with this : ' Port 443is closed on My IP.'  Now what do i do??????

To expand on what frambinni posted above...and why that works.

 

Origin creates a secure tunnel to the login server using a standard HTTPS request on port 443. This is similar to any website that uses a secure (SSL) connection.

 

If you are running security software, Windows Firewall or an aggressive router that is actively blocking non-browser applications from using SSL/port 443, you will get this error.

 

Here's a quick way to check if your port is blocked:

1. Go to a site like http://www.ipchicken.com/ or whatismyip.com to get your external IP address.

2. Copy that IP address and enter it here:http://www.yougetsignal.com/tools/open-ports/

3. Enter 443 in the port number field and click the Check button.

 

This will tell you if your local machine or network is blocking secure traffic.

Check your system time and date - If they are out, it will result in a "Must Be Online" error, even if your compter is speaking to the server just fine...

 

Hope this helps Standard smile
