DNS issue

I was dealing with same problem.
Suspecting was DNS issue, I´ve added a line:

set list http://66.111.56.50:81/db

at config.cfg

Now I can retrieve servers list!
But... every server I try says "server not found".

:(

Frustrating, but maybe I´m getting close.

I hope it helps.

Looks like a possible DNS problem, if you can retrieve the list server by IP address, but not by domain name. Do you still get that error if you connect to a server at an IP address? (try 82.38.156.222 at port 5154)

Try turning off your firewall temporarily and see if that works. Also, what version of the game are you running, what operating system, and did you build the client from source?

hm... i've got this problem too, i can't connect with the list server either, i have a brilliant connection, but it comes up with (on the chatbox) "trying..." and it won't connect, i am on a laptop connecting to a school WAP so, i think this might have something to do with this.

Almost definitely... schools can be pretty paranoid about what you are connecting to... with good reason

no one in the school has heard of the game, slighty wierd, but when i go on the internet i have to put in my password to go on the internet, that may be the cause.
i'm missing BZ quite a bit :cry:
