Cannot connect to Wilderness, Le'Or, Visimontium - RESOLVED!

Post by Manuel the White » Sat Aug 10, 2013 7:18 pm

Servers do not display in gamespy listing. Using direct connect. Just times out on ports 5122, 5124, 5129. Turned off my Firewall. Checked my router. Anyone seen this before?


:cry: <- like a whiny bitch

All modules are up here. They run from the one Avlis Beast server in separate virtual machines, so if you are only seeing some of them, then it is on your end (or the route between).

Using direct connect is far more reliable with the IP#, not DNS name too. Avlis has a static IP, so you can use 96.57.173.162:port# to avoid any delay/fail with your DNS servers looking up the world.avlis.org DNS stuff before translating to those numbers.

viewtopic.php?p=1199842#p1199842
Grunt explains using batch files in a simple way in the link above, but I'd use the IP number instead of world.avlis.org there. It isn't going to change, and skips all DNS hiccups (always faster too, even if you cache DNS stuff, since you are cutting out that step entirely).

If you like checking server stats for how many are on, but don't hang out in IRC with us, I always suggest ServerWatch. One of my spam posts about it (with instructions) here: viewtopic.php?p=1320859#p1320859

*Edits* And you do know that Gamespy doesn't work for NWN anymore, right? Maybe old favorites or whatever, but they dropped the game 10ish months ago. viewtopic.php?f=4&t=127846

Thanks folks! Special thanks to Gorgon for such a detailed answer. I will try IPs and update in a couple hours. 8 )

Bleh. No dice. Same thing happens when attempting to portal to one of the servers from one I can connect to. Let me run some tracert type analysis and see what's going on..

hope you can figure out what is going on. i have been having the exact same problems here myself.

i use the gamespy part to have the severs available in one spot without having to do the other things Gorgon posted. more convenience then anything for me.

the severs are blacked out like they are resetting. strange thing is they will sometimes be blacked out on one list and not the other.....

if i see it blacked out and try a direct connect it still fails, so i was just thinking they were in reset mode.

*shrugs* i am not a IT guy so i truly have no clue what is going on........

Trying to connect to any server just hangs at the moment. Same for Hala/Ysgard to figure an alpha issue?

Nope, it happens for me as well. I see all the servers, it finds it - and trying to log on, and then is timed out.

Ditto on the hang up even when typing the ip+port into direct connect.

QA1/2 problems (fixed) are unrelated to Alpha but the rest of what badja lists definitely looks like a global authentication issue. X:|

Sorry just saw this (been in meetings all afternoon). I just restarted the Alpha service and was able to log in again to Wilderness. Pretty sure I know the issue so it shouldn't happen again.

*casts raise dead thread*

So, I'm having a similar problem to this. I can see (and log into/portal over to) exactly three servers (Wilderness, Le'Or, and Deglos) and all the others are greyed out and neither direct connection nor portaling works. Halp?
