Enterprise Gaming Wiki

Posted by aRt)Y on Tue Mar 18, 2014 12:50 pm

As you might have noticed, the Information and Download section have been removed. As a replacement, we've added ENT's very own Wikipedia, providing you a perfect overview and making reading so much more enjoyable.

:arrow: http://entwiki.net/index.php?title=Home

Our plan is to stop spreading information on the forum and to move all kind of guides and information to the centralized Wiki which also means most of the mass-stickies will be removed.
Within this process, detailed guides will be created for any service ENT provides for free with the huge possibilities a Wikipedia has to offers.

Please make sure to go through the rules again. Some of them have been slightly changed or reworded.
For the future, any rule change will be added to the news.

For feedback, please reply here.

Public hosting bots on EuroBattle.net

Posted by uakf.b on Thu Feb 27, 2014 1:44 pm

Since a large number of users have requested it, the public hosting bots have been reactivated on EuroBattle.net (Europe and Atlanta only).

DDoS

Posted by uakf.b on Mon Feb 17, 2014 8:43 pm

Servers are getting DDoS'd at the moment, but they should be up after the DDoS attack subsides.

Edit: the attack has stopped.

Another server move

Posted by uakf.b on Mon Feb 17, 2014 9:39 am

Servers have been moved again due to spikes on the previous host. Let us know if it's more stable or not.

Re: Massive DDoS attack

Posted by uakf.b on Sun Feb 09, 2014 9:49 pm

We are in the process of migrating the host bots to servers with DDoS protection, this is expensive but becoming necessary. This is in a different location (NJ) so you may notice higher/lower ping to the bots. So far about one-third of the autohost bots that were in Atlanta have been moved.

Massive DDoS attack

Posted by uakf.b on Sun Feb 09, 2014 5:10 pm

The attacker has launched another DDoS attack, with over 10 gbit/s capacity, against multiple servers, including both the autohost and public hosting servers in Atlanta, as well as the Europe autohost server. There is nothing we can do to stop the attacker except wait for the attack to die down.

More network issues

Posted by uakf.b on Sat Feb 08, 2014 11:59 pm

Approximately thirty minutes ago, most of the autohost bots in Atlanta went down because of a distributed denial of service attack targeting our IP addresses there. Our server provider then blocked all traffic to those IP addresses for twelve hours (still blocked). We have relocated the host bots to a different server and they should be back online now; replays will not be stored.

Network issues

Posted by uakf.b on Thu Jan 30, 2014 12:01 pm

The network issues causing random disconnections for some users over the last twenty-four hours seems to be resolved now.

Our server provider believes that one of their upstream providers was causing the problems, and they have temporarily disabled that upstream provider while they continue to investigate.

ENT Connect certificate issues

Posted by uakf.b on Fri Jan 17, 2014 12:16 am

We have updated the ENT Connect JAR to used a certificate signed by our own certificate authority. If you have previously followed instructions from the Resolving certificate errors guide, then you may need to go through the guide again.

There are a few differences in the guide: first, the entconnect.csr file itself has been updated (with the same download location). You do currently have to set your Security Level to High instead of Very High. Lastly, you will need to add the entconnect.csr file as a "Signer CA" instead of a "Trusted Certificate" due to updated Java restrictions.

You should also be able to simply set your Java Security Level to Medium. This is not less secure as long as you pay attention to the Java prompts, and only allow non-sandboxed Java applets to run on websites that you trust.

Codelain.com replacement

Posted by uakf.b on Sat Dec 14, 2013 5:51 pm

As you may have noticed, codelain.com has been down for a while with a
password-protected restriction. I have contacted leax (the codelain.com
admin), however have not been able to get a response. I believe it may
have been hacked and am not sure if leax will be fixing the issues.

As such, here are some updates:

1) I have created a new forum at https://www.ghostpp.com/ which can be
used. Hopefully the Warcraft III host bot community doesn't die! There
will be no ads on this website.

2) If you reused your codelain.com password on any other websites, I
recommend you to change your password on those websites immediately, as
the codelain database may very well have been compromised.
