You can follow a guide here for NAT: http://support.netduma.com/en/support/solutions/articles/16000076587-dumaos-optimal-settings-guide-o...

Using a VPN adds extra hops and latency, you're also likely connecting to a VPN/forcing a game server far away which will mean longer search times - that's normal and that is why we don't recommend it.

Re: Game Searching

This could be anything, it could be the VPN server is under load or the game is trying not to put you in games where your ping would be so much higher than everyone else

Re: Game Searching

Are you trying to connect to very distant servers? If so, it's likely just the fact that the game server is reluctant to put multiple players with high ping into a game. You'll have a much better experience filtering local servers.

Re: Game Searching

No I only connecting to close servers, so why is it taking so long, what can I do to speed it up?

Re: Game Searching

Where abouts are you located and where are the servers you're trying to force?

Vpn only helps the game change to another address, will not make it faster.
