Can't connect to GodSpire
« on: July 28, 2006, 05:25:07 PM »
Looks like GodSpire is still down, or maybe on a different IP. I tried direct connecting to 24.201.85.94:5121 but it didn't work.

OK, I can direct connect to GodSpire but I still don't see it listed under action and Throbble sees me as "offline" when I'm logged in. GameSpy made some changes a couple months back that I think is causing this. It's no longer sufficient to foward the NWN specific ports, it seems that the GameSpy ports must now be forwarded.

Make sure the GodSpire server has these ports forwarded as well as the NWN ones:

Quote
These ports are all local ports which need to be allowed to send traffic both ways. Also, Bioware says that you only need to allow UDP, GameSpy say TCP. I say, with the number of ports you're opening, try just UDP first. If you still have issues, open the TCP as well on an port by port basis, according to the firewall warning log.
   
    6667 (IRC)
    3783 (Voice Chat Port)
    27900 (Master Server UDP Heartbeat)
    28900 (Master Server List Request)
    29900 (GP Connection Manager)
    29901 (GP Search Manager)
    13139 (Custom UDP Pings) *A boatload of traffic hits this port.
    6515 (Dplay UDP)
   
    *Local Port 13139 is where every server pings your client before it lists.

I did this to ThrobbleServ after it stopped appearing in the social channel and it's gotten huge traffic ever since.

It's a shame Gamespy is such a piece of crap.
