Can't connect to multiplayer nor add-on server

Post by Spirit_of_Currents »

This problem has occured with 1.12.2 but not with 1.12.0 (I tried MP). When I tried to connect to the multiplayer server, Wesnoth said that no connection could be created. stderr.txt: "20150425 10:19:05 error network: caught network::error: Could not connect to host." I can still use the net via Firefox. When I tried to connect to the add-on server, I had to wait for dozens of seconds, and then Wesnoth completely crashed without any error message. stderr.txt: "Caught general exception: socket_select_interrupter: Yhteyttä ei voi muodostaa, koska kohdekone ei salli sitä" That Finnish text means "The connection can't be created because the target computer doesn't allow it." Edit: I'm using Windows XP and that version of Wesnoth has worked earlier.

Are you by any chance running a local firewall that’s blocking one Wesnoth executable and not the other, if you installed 1.12.2 and 1.12.0 to different paths?

I did something to my firewall and the Wesnoth problem disappeared. Thanks for help!
