The master server is not responding for online play. Investigating further shows that it is unavailable outside of the game as well (through Internet browsers). The domain, deathmask.net, is listed by the DNS servers, but fails to respond to any HTTP requests or network pings.

Does anyone have any information about this? Is it working for you?

Thanks,
Tom

This site thinks so as well.

It definitely works for some, others it doesn't.  Met some more people on the ciggaweed server last night that dpmaster wasn't working for them. Only reason they could access the server because they had it their favorites. My VPS which runs an OA server still can't access it. So you'll just need the IP of the server you want to play at until whatever is going is resolved.

LOL fromhell nice I am a web developer and I got a little chuckle out of that. WHEN IS THE SERVER GOING TO BE UP? It is so frustrating because I never recorded the IP address for CTF All Rockets or ROFL

People, master server going down is a problem outside of the reach of OA. It even affects Warsow, Xonotic and Nexuiz. There's nothing we can do about that.

There is something you can do however.


Set sv_master4 to 64.22.107.125

It definitely works for some and not others. I've tried using OpenArena with other IP's and I was able to connect to OpenArena. At some people's homes it works, at others It doesn't. I guess a group of IP's are selected at the moment, that can connect to servers.

Currently, I cannot reach dpmaster's web page from my PC, too.

Trying to reach http://dpmaster.deathmask.net from some reachability testing sites:

http://www.internetvista.com/en/web-site-available-check-online-submit.htm
http://www.site24x7.com/check-website-availability.html

Seems to confirm it's reachability is only partial, at the moment... Some servers around the world reach it, others not... I can guess we can only wait...

Thanks, all, for the update. I too checked availability outside of the game with the same results - the deathmask.net domain is unresponsive. When I didn't see anything posted I began to wonder if it was just my ISP, but now I know otherwise.

I will resort to manual entry of server IPs until they get this fixed, assuming I can find the IPs I want.

Thanks again,
Tom

This was posted on another related thread:

I think the reason why it is up for some and down for others is the result of a DNS (Domain Name Server) change. I believe the server has changed IP from 64.22.107.125 to 213.163.83.191, and that they have updated the DNS record for the domain. It will take some time for this to propagate througout the world and it might take up to several days in some countries, just be patient. :-)

You can always reach ciggaweed at: oa.nobitchassness.com


I also updated the config to point to that new euro master server as well.

And I may decide to run my own master server - will let you guys know if I do this.

Does someone (Fromhell, maybe?) know how to contact Willis, Deathmask's dpmaster maintainer IIRC, to ask what's going on?

I'm quite sure the story has been told what's going on with the master server somewhere on the OA forum.

I wrote to willis and he said it was a ddos.

In case this happens again,
you may want to read this post:

Afaik 21 servers are listed now.

As wing0 has pointed out, my master server did suffer a DDoS attack, during which the IP was null routed.

Today, I have moved the dpmaster to a new IP address (107.161.23.68, but same hostname, dpmaster.deathmask.net) which should be more resilient towards such attacks.

For the next 48 hours, listings may be a little odd as some servers will be contacting the old master IP (still running), and some may be on the new.

However, as has been pointed out, an alternative master server is always a good idea.

I should also point out, with the move, the master server now also supports IPv6.  dpmaster.deathmask.net now has an AAAA record, the actual IP address is 2604:180::4ac:98c1

Hi Willis! Thank you for registering on the forum. Having a direct link with who runs master server may be very comfortable. Smiley
And I can finally say "tank you for providing the master server for this free game"...  Smiley


Now, I wonder if that changes something with the problems of OpenArena/IPv6/Master Server...
