unable to join main 1.14 server

Post by bitcoin »

Hi. I'm running 1.14.9 on linux, right now the newest version is 1.14.14.
I can join server2.wesnoth.org but i can't join the main server. I tried:
sudo apt remove wesnoth
apt update && apt upgrade
sudo apt install wesnoth

is the main server on ?
this is from the nmap exit:
nmap -v -A server.wesnoth.org -p 15000

PORT STATE SERVICE VERSION
15000/tcp filtered hydap

sorry i'm noob. it's been a while I'm unable to connect the server.

You can check if the main server is running here:

https://status.wesnoth.org/

It seems to be up and running right now (I'm not sure if it was when you tried it before).

it says "Waiting for server" forever.
I suspected that my username has been banned. so i created another username and i tried. no success. I can connect server2 however.
Could it be my IP ? the location I'm connecting from?
could it be my version?
I could connect 3 months before. By your reply i fully uninstall and install again and see what happens.
I can join server2 now, but i can't join the main server. I use Iran's IP. Is it banned on the main server?

Something that would help as well would be if you could post the output from Wesnoth with the --log-debug=network option set after failing to connect. So on Linux that would be running wesnoth --log-debug=network from the terminal.

It seems like your connection to wesnoth.org is bad. The filtered in nmap output means it got no response.

You could try connecting to server.wesnoth.org:14999 and see if that works a little better.

Do you notice issues when loading webpages on wesnoth.org as well? do you use the same device to browse wesnoth.org and run wesnoth?

Today I could connect only once. So some familiar players online. Then I disconnected, tried to connect to the add-ons server and no success, then I tried to connect back to the server, no success. I tried port 14999 , no success. God ! I miss this game :(

It does sound a lot like there's something weird with your connection going on since you were able to connect once but then couldn't reconnect. A couple other options would be to try using Wesnoth from Steam or Flatpak since they have the most recent version of Wesnoth available and maybe that ends up helping, or you could try using a proxy or VPN if you have one available and see if that helps.

When I had VPN and I was using it I could never join the wesnoth server.
I think that I tried another linux installation with wesnoth and couldn't join the server. I also used internet from cellphone internet and I had no success. I will try windows and android versions soon and will see what will happen.

Seems to have been solved. I changed the DNS server to 1.1.1.1 , 1.0.0.1 , although the ISP-admin told me to change it to 8.8.8.8 and some others. I will have fun changing network settings sometimes and see if every normal thing in life works as it should. VPNs don't work with wesnoth.
