Title: CentOS 6.2 Sever Functional But Can't Join
Post by: Raijin on April 25, 2012, 05:37:49 pm
Well, everything seems to be running fine on the server side.
But when anyone tries to connect to the server it just sits at AWAITING CONNECTION.
I'll share my config and some output.

I followed this tutorial in a nutshell: dmitriy.us/blog/3/setting-up-an-openarena-server-on-ubuntu-linux/

It's worked for me several times on different servers but this time it isn't.

Everything was working fine until a few days ago.
No one can connect anymore.

Again, I'm running CentOS 6 on the server.
Thanks.

Can you see the server on the master list?

No I do not.

hmm, possibly something is misconfigured in your server.cfg in baseoa. You can post up your server.cfg file here (attachment?) and maybe I can pinpoint exactly what's going on.

I've attached it. Let me know what you think.

It looks fine. I don't think its your server.cfg. Are the ports open? Can you see the server if you connect a machine in localhost?

What do you mean my server.cfg? Also, it's a VPS running CentOS not a local computer I have physical access to.

I meant your server.cfg is configured correctly. I thought maybe it wasn't communicating with the master server but that value was set correctly in your file.

I have disabled and flushed IPTables via SSH to my server, same response.

Also, I attached my q3confg_server.cfg.
