Error 3006: Your Request Timed Out

  • I have been experiencing this issue since I installed the game last night. I am running OSX 10.7.2 on a mid-2010 iMac with the latest Software Updates installed. I am NOT running a firewall, antivirus, or peer-blocking program such as Little Snitch. All of the ports required for the game are open on my router, and I can connect to both World of Warcraft and StarCraft II just fine.
  • This is mainly a network issue of of thing. Are you able to try flushing your DNS and see if it helps? We can help determine if this is a Mac only bug or not.

    Flush the DNS
      1. Navigate to /Applications/Utilities/ and launch Terminal.
      2. Copy/Paste the following:
      <code>dscacheutil -flushcache</code>3. Press return.
      Note: You will not get any feedback from Terminal if this is done correctly on any OS.
      4. Test.

    I am running the D3 beta on my PC (Windows 7). I have been able to play the game quite a bit without any problems, until tonight where I timed out with error 3006. At the time it went down for me, I was joining and leaving games rapidly. Mabey this may have something to do with it (cause i know if you join and leave quickly in D2, you get booted from the server for 15mins). Either way, I'm not using a Mac.


    You might benefit from posting in the D3 Beta Windows Tech Forum, since this might be a different issue. Mac users reported having this happen for days at a time. The friendly Windows Tech blues will be able to assist you from there.

    flushing the DNS as instructed above fixed it for me.


    Cool. I'll send the feedback up too. :)

  • You may require a bit more in-dept DNS flush. Try this out to see if it helps.


    1. Navigate to Applications/Utilties and open Terminal
    2. Type in the following commands one by one, and enter your admin password:
    <code>sudo killall -HUP mDNSResponder</code><code>sudo killall mDNSResponder</code><code>sudo dscacheutil -flushcache</code>
    3. Then go in your Network pref pane -> Advanced and click "Renew DHCP lease"
    4. Attempt to connect to the game.
