Can't access the HL server

Is that maybe a port issue? Can anyone offer a solution?

The HL server is down, as Eep prepares new product announcements and Finney is still working on hijacking that Apple truck - so the goods that will be for sale are still, as of yet, unconfirmed.

One thing is for sure... there will NOT be a waxing kit for Finney the Human Gorilla, for sale via the HL Server.

Yeah, I can't get there either... However, it might be a "port" issue seeing I'm at work...

So, give it up... What port do I need open?

Thanks!
Bill

Shunning, it's sad but it happens.

A Google search yields:

The default port for Hotline Connect Servers is 5500, and Hotline uses ports 5500, 5501, 5502, 5503, and 5498 for incoming and outgoing TCP/IP connections, and port 5499 for incoming and outgoing UDP connections. If you cannot connect to a Hotline Server, and you are sure the IP address or Domain name is correct, make sure that the Server you're trying to reach isn't using a different port.

Try using dealchat.no-ip.com, that has always worked for me.

Thanks, Tom.

As I can't connect, even with OS X's firewall turned off, can I assume that the port is blocked from elsewhere on the grounds of this particular gigantic telecom company besides my desk?

Name: dealchat.no-ip.com
Address: 151.204.245.72

Name: macresource.no-ip.org
Address: 151.204.245.72

Note the different TLD of .com versus .org.


Seemingly unrelated is...

Name: dealchat.no-ip.org
Address: 127.0.0.8

and macresource.no-ip.com doesn't resolve to any IP.

Is there a work-around web page client for hotline that can circumvent the port blocking by going through port 80 instead? I think AOL provides something like this for AIM for those users who have only access to a web browser.

Me too, I posted on the sticky before I saw this thread. Must be a firewall or block here at my university.
