msg: contacting server

you will have to forgive me i cant post what i got on the tracert and i cant get the telnet to work

i just tried the status page and a telnet to the server info you posted and was unable to get a response.

either you have the wrong ipaddress or port#, or the server is offline.

Prog-Rocker 07-06-2011 12:38 AM

looks like your DNS cache is out of date

try this ipaddress for the server:

Inie1 07-06-2011 12:44 AM

i could connect but couldn't authenticate

i know the server is up my brother is on it along with some friends of ours

for authentication you will need to contact a server admin and have them check your permissions.

passwords are case-sensitive

i dont know a server admin on that server you linked me but i am one of the admins on server i cant contact

well, glad to here it's working but i'm in wonder that you're able to connect. the portquery is only to test the connection but in your case it must have triggered something to allow the UDP packets thru.

Your right... it temporarily allowed me to get in vent last night, I went to quickly check it this morning and same problem has crept back up again... MSG: Contacting Server :@

I did another port Query


 Starting portqry.exe -n -e 44015 -p BOTH ...

Querying target system called:

Attempting to resolve IP address to a name...

IP address resolved to


TCP port 44015 (unknown service): LISTENING

UDP port 44015 (unknown service): LISTENING or FILTERED
portqry.exe -n -e 44015 -p BOTH exits with return code 0x00000002.
