Suddenly nobody playing online anymore ?

Tried now on two different pc's & two different internet connections - server is down.

I can only see HTTP, FTP & SSH ports on dofgame2.com

Nobody monitoring this service ?

Everything is working great, we had no downtime of any time.

Try restarting your wireless modem/router, and PC, that`ll solve this problem.

As I said I have restarted my pc & router several times, tried on second different pc and also used two different internet connections, one is via wifi router and the other is via 4G USB stick which has no routing capabilities inside.

Also all firewalls & AV disabled.

How is the initial connection being setup ? Is KWB first trying to establish communication on dofgame2.com:30851 then dofgame2 assigns a random port in the xxxx range ? It is connecting again now, but it does not make sense why it did not want to connect or not in the first place ?

Well I cannot access the server once again and for no reason :(

I suspect it is my ping that is sometimes too high 350ms.

What is the timeout on this server ?

Is it not possible to slightly adjust the time out ?

Just an update:

Now it connects only after 20-30 tries :(

I have used wireshark to check if there is communication both ways between my pc & dofgame2.com and found that even if the game would not connect online, both parties comunicate with each other.

Have tried this on a third pc as well - no go.

Reinstalled Windows 10 - no go.

Tried with a different ISP - no go, although I get a decent DOWN/UP speed of 20 megbits per second.

At last, the only thing that consistently connected was to install a VPN (Okayfreedom & Windscribe)

It does not make sense that I need to use a VPN as nothing is blocked in my pc/router/ISP as I have seen in the wireshark trace.

I can ping dofgame2.com with about 350ms average - the VPN does not reduce the ping, only brings down my speeds from 20 to 5 megabits per second, but at least I can connect.

So it seems that either one or both dofgame2.com & kwb2 is very finicky when it comes to making a proper connection.

Sorry for the late reply.

Yeah this is really strange indeed, especially have no idea why it requires you to use the VPN. Connection works just fine for hundred of thousands of players around the world, However - we did have a very small % of players who just couldn`t connect... but we were never able to figure it out.
