The game may be hard to reach, this is how to solve the problem!!!!

http://forum.longturn.org/viewtopic.php?id=507

Hi,

I'm moving my DNS server to new server, while old will be shut off tomorrow. Unfortunately tomorrow I will be AFK and it's very likely that longturn.org will be not resolveable during nearest few days.
So, be prepared to problems with accessing website, forums, etc...
You can connect to game by ip numbers, which for lt34.longturn.org is 212.232.29.125
Sorry for inconvenience sad. I hoped that I will start doing it week earlier.

Please write that IP address down since you may need it for connecting to the game

The usage of the IP number: When connecting to the game, replace lt34.longturn.org (or any other longturn address you currently use, lw2b.longturn.org, lw2c.longturn.org) with that number: 212.232.29.125

Note! If the number is not needed, you can't see this forum either. Not without that IP address.

For connecting to the forum enter the IP address 212.232.29.125 on the web browser as the address

Not working. The game can be connected by the IP but to access the forum you need to add something to it. Plain IP goes to a default page:

It works!

This is the default web page for this server.

The web server software is running but no content has been added, yet.

Can someone tell what to add there?

This is because the http server has virtualhosts defined based on the URL you try to access.
The page you reach when only typing the IP address is the default virtual host (the first one defined).
A temporary workaround I'm currently using (on linux) was to edit the /etc/hosts file and append the following line:

212.232.29.125 longturn.org forum.longturn.org

It bypasses the problematic DNS query to resolve the longturn.org domain names as you've forced the given IP address to be used.
On windows, one should get the same result by editing c:\winnt\system32\drivers\etc\hosts .

Does this mean we're back in the address book?
