Ship Simulator Multiplayer server maintenance
« on: November 07, 2008, 15:26:27 »

Dear Users,

Some of you might have noticed that the Official VSTEP servers are currently not reachable for online gaming. (although they are listed in the Server list)

This morning at 09:00 we have started replacing our multiplayer servers with new ones.
These new servers should prove faster and more stable than our previous ones.

Unfortunately there is still a problem, which cause them to be unreachable from outside connections. We are working on a solution and I will inform you in this topic if there is more information available.

More news later!

Another small update:

The connection has improved, but appears to be unstable at times.

We will be working on the servers for another few hours tonight and probably all day tomorrow.

We will keep them online for testing purposes, but they might be closed down for maintenance purposes at any given moment. Since we are uncertain of the cause of the problems, it is very difficult to say when the servers will be completely up and running.

We are sorry for the inconvenience and we will try to get everything working as soon as possible.

Regards,
Mark

Hi All,

It seems we have not gained much improvement in the connectivity.
We are calling it a day for now, but will resume our work tomorrow.

Our apologies that the Official servers are not of much use to you tonight. You might be able to connect, but there will probably be a relatively large latency in your connection.


More news will follow tomorrow.

It is me again with some bad news.

We are afraid we are not able to fix the problem today.
The problem with the new servers seems to be a mixture of different causes and we need our hosting provider to further look into the problem. This means that we will have to wait until Monday morning before we can call them and have them monitor all the traffic during our different tests.

Enjoy your weekend and let's hope for the fast results this Monday morning.

All problems with our new MP servers seem to be solved.
We will continue to monitor the server connections in the upcoming weeks to see if we can improve things.

Best regards,
