Global Logins with WIN32 server

Post by anarchogeek » Tue Apr 05, 2005 3:06 pm

Hi,

I'm running a server on a Windows XP machine. Having just fixed my EGAIN error, I've discovered an issue with global logons. Nobody is able to use global logons to access my server. Several other WIN32 servers have the same problem, but I've noticed that there are others that seem to work fine.
So. Is this my messup (missing BZFS argument?) or a bug?

Thanks,
-HTanker

make sure you don't use a passwords file.

make sure your ISP dosn't use a caching proxy, or you may get old tokens.

a.k.a. change in your config file set list http://list.bzflag.bz to set list http://list.bzflag.bz:81/db

Should it be set list or -set list or -setlist or what in the config file?

It's :
-publiclist http://list.bzflag.bz:81/db

According to man bzfs

Spldart, it's set list . No hyphen before it.

Sbgodin, -publiclist works in a server config file. The set list works in the game config file.

I personaly see many MsWindows servers which did not allow global login for every players, wheras other work for me and other players. Only (or most of the time) MsWindows bzflag servers did that to me. Never saw any Linux bzflag server which refused the global login.

That's why I think it's a server-side problem.

Perhaps Linux users are more aware of this problem? So they don't get trapped into such a problem. Or, more simply, it's a bug on the MsWindows version of bzfs...

yeah.. I think it must be some bug in bzfs, otherwise, what could have explained how my compiled bzfs worked... without me changing anything in the conf :roll:
