I cannot join a friend and he can't join me. I saw that my NAT is strict. Can it be the root cause ?

What ports should be opened ?

after enabling UPnP, NAT is TBD, but I still can't join my friend

yes NAT Strict will affect your multiplayer connexions

The problem was my router being pfSense, so I needed to set up an Outbound NAT rule. I remembered doing that for Destiny 2 but at the time it was for a different reason that I had to do it (double NAT that I don't have anymore).

I don't know why Satisfactory required this.

What rule did you have to make for Outbound NAT?
by (130 points)
NAT: Outbound
Hybrid or Manual
Source is your IP/32
Check Static Port box
make sure rule is at the top of the list.

Connection successful.
