i think that the IP might have changed because direct connect was not working for me, had to jump on the server lists. havent taken the time to check though

Currently direct connect is showing 192.38.55.132:5123

as opposed to the 192.38.55.36:5123 it was before. look like the DNS assigned a new IP

I saw it as down under "Favorites" but not under "History" or any of the other categories.

Confirmed, the last oclet of the IP address needs to updated if you are a direct connect user

Go to the Internet tab, find it under roleplay.

Did i miss a post where they were going to change the IP?

Nope, there was no announcement. But it occurred after this morning's crash, it took me awhile to realize others had got in the game again. but i updated my shortcut with the direct connect and it is working so the IP has definitely changed.
Alternatively, like Insomnia mentioned, the gamespy hookup is still working, and that is where i looked up the new IP address, just hate having to launch NWN first, personally.

Hmm, odd, none of us knew of this either. Could seem like there was a power out or similar, but even then, I'm surprised the IP address would change because of that. I'll have Axel look at it (when he's recovered from his hangovers - partied crazy all night!)

If you stick the one you find in the Internet tab into your Favourites, you can delete the old one and carry on as before, unless you're a Direct Connecter.

Favourites never worked for me!  :x But I See it on the list, might be fixed by now although.

Somone would have to change the IP in the Routing table for it to change and propogate. Sorry Network Admin i know way to much.

The same thought occurred to me earlier too.

I don't see PotM in the main roleplaying section, the history section, or the favorites section...

Nevermind I got it now :D

Whats the new Ip?
Title: Re: Server down
Post by: Vokan on July 22, 2009, 03:47:22 PM
Correct, the IP of the server has changed. The server can be found here:

192.38.55.132:5123

So I'm not the only one who was wondering where the server ran off to. I just had wireless setup at my new pad after the past few months without, came home, and went to log in, and nothing.

I'll look for Potm under the general listening.

....all this time I've been worrying as to why it's been down so long. I should check the message board sooner I guess ><

Hmm... I'd like to know if you can access our server from where you are, i.e., if it's "just" a problem with nwn and the connections it use, or if it's something else.

Please try to ping nwn.kom.auc.dk.

If you know how to, then please skip the following:
1: open the run menu
2: type: cmd <enter>
3: in the cmd-window, type: ping nwn.kom.auc.dk <enter>
4: watch the output.


  You can ping the server still that way.  It is there, like Soren said, but I can't find it games wise.  It looks like the IP rolled again, anyways.

My mistake, it is still reporting as 192.38.55.132 pinging it that way.
