Extended server "maintenance" on old-school

Post by whasf » Wed Jun 18, 2014 8:41 pm

Attention all people who play on old-school:

The server will be shut down Friday June 27th, sometime in the evening (eastern time). I will log in and announce it before I take the server down.

The server will be down about a week for a move. Stay tuned during that time to this forum for new connection information. No data will be lost!

I jokingly wondered if this was a way to shutdown the server with less drama. /razz

It's back! We will need to keep an eye on the IP address, if it changes a lot I'll have to pony up for a static IP. If you can't connect, check this post.
Right now it is: 174.69.135.116

DNS names work with the newest launcher so you could use a service like no-ip.com to allow for a continuously valid means of connecting.

no-ip.com does not offer a DynDNS setup that auto-updates your registration info for the redirect. You have to manually update it if it changes.
