How many different servers did you try? Was any of them for the first time?


There is nothing exceptional in your client log that I can see. Why the server closed the connection might be written into the servers log. Often it is a corrupted player file, but that can't be it if it happens even on servers that you visit for the first time.


You could contact one of the server admins and ask him to check his logfile for relevant messages when you tried to connect.





PS: You give 20.1 for your build, but it actually is 20.5(b2). I assume this is just a typing mistake. You didn't try to connect to servers with version 20.1, right?

There is one warning in your log that I don’t normally see in game logs:


WRN NET: Requesting rules from TCP ( timed out


I don’t know if this is a warning that you can ignore or a hint to your problem. That ip address is your ip address as the game sets up for single/multiplayer host game. However the log does say that the server you joined initiated the disconnect rather than something in your set up causing the disconnect. A server log should provide you with more clues as Meganoth suggested.
