Okey dokey - thanks to a very permissive terminal in an internet cafe and a lot of help from Tique and a very expensive international data/call bill we should hopefully now be back.  I have had to seriously hack around to make this work however as the network instability is still in the background so please bear that in mind as I will need to sort this mess out eventually when I get back

Server State seems to be that of one week ago, anything that occurs on that server will not be carried over to the actual MUD once reopened.

Website is down again, could that mean repair has started?
+
 
+
EDIT: When it first went offline, the server would connect, and not display the webpage/MUD/any data. Now, it won't connect, indicating either that the website is indeed down for repair, or that it is suffering even more problems. (first option seems both more desirable and more likely).

:::Did you try using the ip address to connect to the mud instead of the name? Put 82.68.167.69 as the address and you can try either port 23 or 4242.

:::: I always use the IP address to connect, so it can't be DNS. I suspect something very odd is going on with my ISP.

Discussion

  • Up - Since around yesterday afternoon (GMT) the Discworld is online again. Darkfrost (talk) 07:47, 17 October 2020 (EDT)
  • Down - Inaccessible as of 7:45AM GMT/UTC 0. discworld.starturtle.net port 4242 and disctemp.starturtle.net port 23 are both down. -- Qingfeng 8:45am UTC 0, 16 Oct. 2020
  • Up - Once again accessible as of 10:45 GMT-5. --Inabun (talk) 10:45, 19 Sept. 2020
  • Down - Inaccessible as of 22:00 GMT-5. --Inabun (talk) 22:01, 17 Sept. 2020

Should be accessible with disctemp.starturtle.net port 23.

...or if that isn't working for you: 80.192.66.125 port 23.

Alas, disctemp.starturtle.net (82.46.102.104) is not accessible for me. "operation timed out. unable to connect to remote host." (from new jersey usa) -- Jaceth.

The main address discworld.starturtle.net (82.68.167.69) is down for me, too, but the backup link disctemp.starturtle.net (80.192.66.125) works for me at 17:37 London time. -- Jeanie (talk) 12:37, 18 September 2020 (EDT)

The main address discworld.starturtle.net (82.68.167.69) is up again for me at 13:00 London time. -- Qingfeng

  • Down - 2021/09/02 10:26 [CEST] - The main address discworld.starturtle.net (82.68.167.69) is down. The backup link disctemp.starturtle.net (92.233.72.15) responds to PING but won't establish a connection. -- Spip
  • Up - 2021/09/02 14:51 [CEST] - The main address discworld.starturtle.net (82.68.167.69) is working for some people, but some are still reporting issues. The backup link disctemp.starturtle.net (92.233.72.15) seems to be a valid connection alternative in such cases, using port 4242 (port 23 might not be working on either address, at least for some people). -- Spip

IPv6

There are several so called IPv6 brokers that can allow one to access the IPv6 network without having an IPv6 enabled internet connection. Some are free. Some require registration.

See the IPv6 page for information.
