How To Fix Connection Timed Out In Satisfactory

The connection timed-out error indicates that your PC could not connect to the server fast enough, causing you to disconnect. However, this can be easily fixed by making some changes to both your server and your client.

Increasing your Servers Timeout Limit

It is possible to increase the amount of time given before being timed out in the server's Game.ini file.

  1. Access your control panel and Stop your server.
  2. Navigate to Files > FTP File Access.
  3. Navigate to /FactoryGame/Saved/Config/LinuxServer/ and edit Game.ini.
  4. Below [/Script/Engine.GameSession] add the following lines of code:
    1. InitialConnectTimeout=180.0
    2. ConnectionTimeout=120.0
  5. Save the file and Start your server.
  6. Via your Satisfactory Client, Go to Settings > Gameplay and set Network Quality to Ultra.

You can change the values entered to Game.ini if you wish to give yourself more time to connect, however, these should be suitable for most players.
