Problem with Origin
I have a problem downloading stuff with Origin on pfSense 2.0.3. When I click on any game it just stays on preparing download and doesn't do anything except error out after a few minutes.
Now for some technical info: I have set up squid, havp proxy and Snort on my router. Snort is disabled currently so that I could rule it out and I've opened all the appropriate ports and made the required NAT rules so it should work. I even enabled UPNP but Origin doesn't open any ports on it. I tried two different computers and to check that it wasn't my internet connection I even plugged my PC directly to WAN and Origin started working.
Can anyone help me solve this issue?
Edit: For anyone else with this problem. It's HAVP that's acting up. I'm looking into it as I type this.
Edit2: Some exclusion (.ea.com/ and .origin.com/) to whitelist in HAVP and I'm back in business.
Yeah I was having the same problem with downloading battlefield 3. Squid would max out the connection but it wasn't sending the data to the user. Excluded "akamai.cdn.ea.com" as it was the cause of the problem and fixed it.
this is an old topic, i know….
thanks for the simple answer, this solved my origin problem.
