August 17, 2007: Error connecting to Master Server
« on: August 17, 2007, 09:19:40 AM »

Hello FSHost admins,

Just wanted to let you know about a potential problem you might be having with getting FSHost to register with the Master Server (so that it'll be listed in FSHostSpy).

My web hosting company just recently changed the numeric IP address for www.chocolatesoftware.com (where the Master Server is located), so any FSHost servers that were started before the IP change will now be trying to connect to the wrong IP.  If your FSHost is having this problem, you'll see red error messages at the bottom of the log window saying it wasn't able to connect to the Master Server, and that it will retry again every 60 minutes.  If you don't see those messages, your FSHost is probably fine, because you most likely restarted it after the IP change a few days ago.

To fix the problem, close the FSHost program completely and restart it.  After the FSHost game servers start again, you should see the message "Registered with the Master Server" in black text, indicating that it's all ok.

Thanks!
Russell
