Doomseeker connection timeout when querying.

Post#1 by Gogmagog » 2 months ago

This issue inexplicably appeared yesterday. No matter what I try or what settings I change, Doomseeker will give me a connection timeout error when querying the master server. IDE, using the same connection settings, will retrieve a list of servers with no problem.

In other words:

Doomseeker tries connecting to master.zandronum.com:15300, and fails.
IDE tries connecting to master.zandronum.com:15300, and succeeds.

I can't understand why Doomseeker isn't working. I know traffic is being correctly sent and received between me and the master server because IDE works fine, but I double-checked all of my network settings just in case. Windows Firewall is (and has always been) off, and all of the necessary ports are forwarded. As far as I can tell, with the exception of Doomseeker's behavior, nothing has changed in the last 24 hours.

I've tried wiping and recreating my Doomseeker configs, but nothing changed. I thought it might have been a bad update, so I downloaded Doomseeker again and refused auto-update on first launch, but again nothing changed.

Help. :v:

Do you use any anti-virus software? This can also block programs and can also have firewalls disguised under unsuspecting names like "network security". Alternatively you might try to update to the newest beta. Just configure the beta auto-update channel in options and update from the help menu.

Beta update seems to have fixed it, but I don't know why.

Anyway, thanks.

I'm having the same issues. Doomseeker was working fine 2 days ago and today I try to pull it up and all i get is this message: "Error: Master server for Zandronum Connection timeout (45.56.67.39:15300)."
