Trouble setting up animal crossing new leaf multiplayer

How do i join my friends in this game? I have one friend that already set up port fowarding for us to join but we get an error (unable to connect to host) everytime we join. We already set up accounts and tokens and Going to the train station doesnt work because i get an error saying i dont have friends on my 3ds friends list. So Has anyone gotten multiplayer to work or what are we doing wrong?

Here’s some issues I found with your log that might help.

  • Enabling Accurate Multiplication is recomended in certain games. If you are experiencing graphical glitches, try enabling this option.

Connect using the local wifi multiplayer mode.

It is probably because of Windows firewall, Just follow the steps and find which is version is yours or go try it your self here is the link (it will allow a rule to somewhat by pass the firewall and it will allow you to be seen by other devices or some sort)
(Make sure to do it on both devices because the other device that you haven’t configure cannot receive pings)(In short do it on both devices)Enjoy:3 :
