Anyone else having trouble connecting to the Graal Serverlist? It gets me to where it says its connecting to the serverlist and then says "Connection could not be made"....Yes I'm on the internet or I obviously wouldn't be able to post this..

I hope its not down to long and i hope no playerworld data is lost. I would imagine they do backups

Servers seem to be online!

It looks like their list server(s) DNS just isnt resolving....

So yes anyone who was on until DNS died is still on.....
Also CID thanks for the vote for my forums rating i voted you up too!

The serverlist DNS is working, but the serverlist software is not running.

The serverlist runs on port 14922, which gives a nice connection refused when you try to connect to it.

Stefan should make the next version connect to the IP instead of the DNSes... since this happens so often

it is not the DNS problem, the serverlist ISNT very strong, it could EASILY be frozen if enough data is sent to it to stop it from responding (which is what viper did, he had a ton of people ping the IPs)

Wow. Thanks for advertising this; I'm sure all the hackers out there would like to know that. It was a really good idea to not only say this but emphasize the EASINESS of it. Genious.

Idiot.

Well, I'm pretty sure if there were hackers that they would know the basics of what they were doing, and that information would be no new news to them. When Viper shut down Graal for a day and a half, it was a hot topic on the forums.

any 'hacker' would know that, even though viper IS an idiot he was smart enough to know that pinging the serverlist enough stopped it from responding, in fact anyone with HALF a brain would know that when too much data is sent to somethin, it does tend to freeze

In order to freeze the server list he has to ping Stefan's computers to crash them causing them not to send information to the servers in Europe and in America.

Perhaps they may know it, but you must admit that that post does not help in any way. The point is, you shouldn't post security vulnerabilities at all. Tell stefan in an email or something, but posting them here is simply stupid. "Hello! Hack graal! It's EASY! Here's how!" Quite a lot of emphasis on easy too.
