How to Fix Error 67 in Rocket League (Solved)

Being unable to play online is frustrating, especially when you're being stopped by a code that you likely don’t know the cause of. The code in question is often referred to as ‘error 67’.

What this error essentially means, is that you are unable to participate in online gameplay until this issue is resolved.

Why Does Error 67 Occur?

This error can occur for more than one reason which can often lead to a long troubleshooting procedure until you find the root of the problem.

One reason why this error can occur is due to Steam running without authorization from the system admin. This is, of course, a PC only issue and a common one if the system has multiple users.

This is not the only PC only issue, however. Another reason could be that your antivirus/firewall is blocking access, or your router ports need to be forwarded.

Finally, the last well-known issue linked to the error is that UPnP is not activated. UPnP stands for Universal plug and play and relates to a set of protocols that effect networked devices.

How to Fix “Error 67” in Rocket League

Though these problems perhaps sound rather technical and daunting, there is no need to worry.

For each occurrence, there is a simple solution that will get you back on the Rocket League pitch in no time. We have compiled a guide for each situation so no matter what obstacle you have to overcome, we can give you the tools to do just that.

Method 1 – Run Steam as the Administrator

When it comes to running problems without administrative privileges, it simply requires the player to allow said privileges to get things back to normal. Thankfully the process is very simple.

You need to have the ability to enter the administrator login credentials if needed .If you're using a PC with multiple user accounts, it's possible yours isn't the admin. If you have access however, then this fix is not difficult at all. Here is a step by step guide on how to do it:

  1. If you have steam currently open and it’s running without administrative privileges, simply close down steam.
  2. Once you have closed steam, locate the shortcut for steam either on your desktop, taskbar or in your program files, and right-click on it.
  3. When the right-click menu shows, select ‘run as administrator’. If you need to enter login details it will prompt you to do so.

Once you have changed this and ran steam as an administrator, the program should have access to the ports and online components that are needed and you shouldn’t have any issues regarding error 67.

Method 2 – Adding an Exception to Antivirus Software and Disabling Firewalls

The next problem that can cause this issue is antivirus software or firewalls preventing steam from accessing ports needed for matchmaking.

These systems are known to often block communication to programs that use third-party servers such as Rocket League. So for that reason, it is sometimes necessary to check the settings for these systems.

This is such a common problem that a number of other errors, such as error 48, error 58 and error 68 can also be fixed via this method.

There are two ways to go about relieving this issue.

The first is entering the settings as aforementioned and establishing new rules for the ports related to Rocket League.

Once done, you need establish that there is an exception made for these specific ports. This allows the software to continue protecting your system while allowing access to the needed ports through a manually made rule.

This is not always possible for players to do, especially when working with firewall software.

So the second way requires the player to disable or uninstall the system responsible for the blockage or breakdown in communication.

Method 3 – Forward the Rocket League Ports

Interestingly, this can so often be the problem that many other errors can be fixed the exact same way, including error 42, error 58, error 67, and error 71, among others.

This basically involves players entering their router’s settings and adding specific ports that are needed. Here is a step by step guide for you:

  1. First, access the router settings. To do this you need to open a Web browser and in the search bar, enter your personal IP address. This should bring you to the settings menu
  2. Before being given access, you will be prompted for your login credentials. Enter your username and pbuttword correctly to continue.
  3. Now you will have access to the router settings and will have the ability to forward any additional ports that are needed. Depending on the system in question, these can vary quite a lot. Here is a quick list of the ones that you will need for each respective system
  • Steam: TCP: 27015-27030,27036-27037; UDP: 4380,27000-27031,27036
  • Playstation 4: TCP: 1935,3478-3480; UDP: 3074,3478-3479
  • Xbox One: TCP: 3074; UDP: 88,500,3074,3544,4500
  • Switch: TCP: 6667,12400,28910,29900,29901,29920; UDP: 1-65535

After you have successfully added the necessary ports, turn off the WiFi system and/or console. Then restart the system and check if the problem has been resolved.

Method 4 – Enable UPnP in the Router Settings

If all the above methods have failed, there is still hope. You can use this method and more than likely, it will aid your situation.

This method entails entering your router settings and enabling UPnP settings. This allows all WiFi-based software to communicate freely and negates any blockages or breakdowns in communication.

So here is a step by step guide on how to enable these settings:

  1. First, access the router settings. To do this you need to open a Web browser and in the search bar, enter your personal IP address. This should bring you to the settings menu
  2. Before being given access, you will be prompted for your login credentials. So simply enter your username and pbuttword correctly to continue.
  3. Once you have entered the router settings within the browser, you’ll want to locate the ports section. Within this section there should be an option to enable UPnP. Find this and then select enable.
  4. After you have enabled this, make sure that you have saved the changes to the system and then restart the WiFi system. Allow up to 60 seconds for the system to reboot. If done correctly, you should not see the error message and be able to join and compete in online matches.

Of course, you need to bear in mind that the picture above is just an example, not every router is the same, and consequently not every router will have the same design and layout of its settings tab.

Still, if you follow our instructions above the image, you should be able to find and enable UPnP on your system.

An Error That Shouldn’t Cause Terror

As mentioned, not being able to connect and participate in online matches within Rocket League can lead to a very diluted and limited experience.

Through the tips, tricks and step by step guide provided, we hope that you can quickly identify the problem causing that pesky red script when matchmaking and get straight back into the action.

One of the best things about Rocket League is the community and the challenge of multiplayer, so don’t let your gaming system hold you back from a myriad of fun matches and the exhilarating experience of climbing up the ranks.
