Connection problems
« on: August 02, 2009, 01:42:39 am »
Players experiencing trouble connecting to the game at tharel.net should instead use our IP address, which is currently 74.54.135.2  Still port 5005.

This is not the long term fix, our host RPG-WORKS.NET is replacing Eddie, our server, we will ene dot shutdown and restart on the new one :)
then we can use the IP  that tharel.net is resolving to.

You're a dead man if I have to master rebuild for a third time just quietly.

Seems Jeff and I forgot about changing the domain name tharel.net into my name and contact information.  I have contacted Jeff to see if he can not resolve this issue.  We may have lost that domain name forever....I am again not sure.  At this point, until I hear back from him we are in limbo.

Well, a domain is never lost forever.
If it is no longer registered to a person, anyone can register it, so you'll have to be fast to check that and re-register.
You could also ask your administrator to register it as a take over.
And see if the person to whom it was registered confirms your request.

Actually the godaddy whois info just shows that the domain is registeren untill  13/08/2010 and that is can not be requested for transfer, renewal update and deletion.
Which actually means nothing... it's still valid.

As I see it, the nameservers ns1.rpg-works.net and ns2.rpg-works.net are not properly configured for tharel.net, something godaddy has to fix.
Had the same problem with my own domain before and they had to get rid of mine and reset in in the system and it worked...
Has nothing to do with the person to who it has been registered.
The prohibited thing are normal with a .net domain. If you request a transfer, renewal or update with you company godaddy.com they will make it happen.

(please note i could be wrong aswell, but this is based on my own experience...)

In the meantime everyone can still connect via the IP address.  Our sincere apologies for the recent wonkiness.
