Can a number of you please check to see if 24/7 FREELANCER UNIVERSE is showing up on the global server list? It shows up for me but it's on my network. Some players are saying that they don't see it in the list despite it showing up on the Most Active Servers list.

Please let me know.

Thank you,
Robo

Any ideas why? Nothing's changed on our end except maybe the IP...

I'll try reregistering the IP

But, that shouldn't make a difference, right?

What would cause it to register on the active servers list but not show on the global server list?

Yeah, mine says server failed to make connection to list server.

Does the list server operator know it's down? What can we do to help get it back up again?

Or, is it abandoned as well?

And, what about the servers that DO show up in the Multiplayer server list? How do we join THAT elite group?

Add your server manually here (with a dns name if you dont have static ip): http://www.flserver.de/add_server.php

And integrate this into your mod: http://www.freelancerserver.de/download/flgls_workaround_v10.zip

Interesting. My router firewall identifies that website as having malicious content and won't allow me to connect.

Regarding the suggestions W0dk4 provided, that's been done on FLU for years.

I refreshed the IP by re-adding the server using the link you provided and the workaround patch is already integrated into the mod. Players are still reporting though that they can't see the server on the list.

The mod is to be run on the client side, correct? The only thing that needs to be done on the server side is to change the list server setting in freelancer.ini.

Right?

The FLU server is in the global server list and has been resubmitted just in case.

Players have the correct files incorporated and they're still unable to see the server.

Anything else to try?

Does anyone else see an IP of 5.9.69.107 in their firewall? It traces back to germany and it's connected to my server even though nobody else is on.

That wouldn't be the global server, would it?

The server doesn't even show up in my list now even though it's connected to my LAN.

Edit: All right, here's some more info.

If I use the fldirectip.hta option to log in I can see the server in my list when I use the WAN IP address but I can't log in. The server waits and then says that a connection couldn't be made.

If I use the same option but use the LAN IP address (192.168.*.*) I can see the server in my list and I can log in.

If I attempt to log in normally using the regular shortcut and global server to access the server it doesn't even show up in the list.

I'm thinking FLU is under attack again. Nothing has changed in the mod or on the server. The server is running and works as evidenced by the fact that I can log in using the local IP address and the fldirectip.hta login method. Something is preventing it from showing up on the global server list and something is preventing the server from being accessed using normal methods.

There are no changes to the router, the modem, the firewall either on the router or on the server.

Any ideas?

Oh, and we're still failing to make connection to the list server.

gun.fllistserver.com is 5.9.69.107
Some routers refuse to pass connections from LAN hosts to the routers WAN IP addresses...mine is one of them. If i want to verify a port is properly opened on my WAN IP I need to scan from a external IP address.

So, that IP address is legit.

Still at a loss as to why FLU does not show up on the list.

Players report this started about a month ago. Interestingly enough I never had a problem being connected directly with the LAN and others have been able to log in as well but it's worse now.

Nobody has logged in since I logged out last night and that's unusual.

I'll review all firewall settings again when I get home tonight but it's a mystery.

Sorry, it seems like there is a problem on our end (updating http://www.freelancerserver.de/serverips.txt does not seem working). So it is not your fault, the GLS workaround does not currently work as it is intended to be. I'll try to fix it ASAP

On 1.10. (a month ago), the HDD of our server at freelancerserver.de blew up and apparently Crazy was also running the GLS on it. So at least rest assured, this is apparently the problem. I'll try to get the update process of the serverip file running again, then the workaround should actually work again.

Oh thank God!

I very much appreciate your work on this W, it's largely due to your efforts and others like Crazy, DownUnder, Adoxa, and too many others to list that FL is still up and running today.
