Trouble to connect to my server!

Post by Sniper 50 » Thu Jan 09, 2003 6:30 pm

Hi!
I have sometrouble to connect on my server.
The server get on the serverlist and anybody can play but me, sure its great some one wants to play there but i would like to that to :cry:
When im trying to connect i get the message No data for host (11004)

The script is:
bzfs -p 59999 -cr +r -mo 3 -mp 0,3,3,0,0 -ms 2 -public "testing" -publicaddr 213.112.135.75:59999 -lagwarn 300 -lagdrop 3 -maxidle 180 -passwd ..... -time 1800 -requireudp

I might add im running Windows XP, if that have something to do with it.

Anybody who can help me out here, and dont forget im a first timer at this :D

have you tried it on the normal port (no p or pr switches)? There might be something using that or wanted to use that but i dbout it but it would be something to try first.

Sniper,

The developers still have not correct problems with BZFS running on any Windows platform. Strange things happen when a Windows system attempts to run a server that is on the public list. Otherwise, running a server over a lan or locally is fine.

I received this information directly from dutchrai, so you might want to ask him about it.

Hope that helps.

I have a widnwos server here that runs 6 boards on it here and it generaly runs good sometimes you fail to connect but if you retry it works. The servers aren't public but i wouldn't think that would change much other then the listserver checking your server every so often.

Its a known problem that a Public server will just not run on a Windows computer. You can tweak at it all ya want, aint gonna happen.

Yup, the problem with BZFS on Windows is that LAN and Local games are fine, but Internet games are not (server could easily crash when a player disconnects from the game).

However, that does not explain your connection problem. I noticed however that you use a very weird port, 59999. Try to omit the port and see if it works (it will use the default one of 5155).

Nope, You can't use 5155 on windows, it is already in use by windows. So try

-p 5156 -pr 5157

Hi again!


The port number 59999 was my last attemt to get it to work, i allready tried the others 5155 5156 5157, so my guess was that the problem wasnt that, maybe i should told that before sry

MrApathycream, tx for the 5155/Windows thingy...didn't know that :o


Sniper, could you post the complete BZFS string you used? Maybe there are weird things in there...who knows.

However there is probably not much point in trying to solve it since your Windows/BZFS server will crash anyway after a short while, even if you manage to connect to it yourself. If you're serious about running a BZFS server I advice you to use Linux for that, it's what I did to get my BZFS going (dual booting my machine now).

It's in his original post:
bzfs -p 59999 -cr +r -mo 3 -mp 0,3,3,0,0 -ms 2 -public "testing" -publicaddr 213.112.135.75:59999 -lagwarn 300 -lagdrop 3 -maxidle 180 -passwd ..... -time 1800 -requireudp
I gave Sniper the string, we've tried other ports and reconnect ports. I've seen funny things happen when trying to play bzflag on the same pc that is running bzfs. I'm currently running my bzflag server on win2k pro, (possibly changing that soon). The server seems fine for all users that connect to it. It seems the problems I've had (when playing on same pc running bzfs) happen if I'm using random worlds (ctf random or ffa random). If I use a custom world (which I'm currently running), I have no problems.
The problems I've had aren't like Snipers, I was able to connect to the server, as long as it was using a port other than 5155. They were "kooky" in nature; in ctf (-cr) I would see players carrying a team flag that were not actually carrying the flag, or the flag would disappear all together (when using 1.7e6 for server). Another one was, I would appear "stealth-cloaked" to all players, but they appeared fine to me (when using 1.7e4 for a server) and I could shoot them.
