Important parts

What is the issue you’re having? Cant connect to a specific server (tried 4 others and it works)

What are you trying to do?
Trying to connect to a server IP is in the log file.
What have you tried already to fix the issue?

EDIT!: I tried bypassing my router thus using the I think it’s called “fiber converter” and connected my computer directly to that, seems to be my router blocking… wierd cause i’ve tried disabling all firewalls but it still dosen’t work

Deleting cache. Had this issue yesterday and removed a port forward in my router and suddenly it worked (i thought) now it dosen’t work again. Have contacted the server support and they can’t find anything wrong. Admin recomended me a program called cloudflare I think and when I enable that my public IP changes and I can almost connect it then instead rejects me for having a VPN. I have tried restarting router modem everything.
Error screenshot (if any):

What did you do to get this issue? Connect to the server

What server did you get this issue on? Be specific and name some, ‘all of them’ by itself isn’t useful!

I found a fix for it might not work tough. It worked for me so here:

  1. Navigate to FiveM ( C:\Users\youruser\AppData\Local\FiveM\ ) Change youruser with your Windows User name.
  2. Find Data and delete Cache the full folder, not just files inside.
    Enter this folder and do what the next image says.
    That is the folder you want to delete.
  3. Restart FiveM.

I hope this works. It worked for me I hope it will work for you too
