160918 14:01:45  ERROR creating FS2004 and FSX session. DirectX is reporting an error because UDP port 6073 is already in use. This can often be fixed by disabling your firewall or reconfiguring it to allow this port to be used by FSHost. McAfee's PrivacyService can also cause this problem. Some users have also reported that disconnecting their router from the internet before starting FSHost can fix the problem.

Everything was working great up until about 6 months ago when something changed and I was no longer able to launch the service. My firewall has all the same ports both at the perimeter AND on the local server (Norton 360), and the netstat above shows nothing conflicting with 6073, so I'm leaning more towards a service problem (maybe Direct Play is fubared or something?).

I can connect fine to other FSHost servers and see all players, so the client is working fine, I just can't host. =(
Any ideas?
