    Default TS Server Change

    Attention all members

    We know there has been frustrations with TS stability for months now. Kid A has been working with our TS provider all this time to try to resolve the issue, but we're now at a point that neither us nor the provider think it is a configuration or server issue. The Datacenter we're in is not large and gets hit with frequent (sometimes daily) DDoS attacks that our provider has no capability to avoid. Given the situation, Kid A and I have discussed moving our TS server to a new location with the same provider.

    We expect this move to be triggered tomorrow morning (Thursday Oct. 28).


    What you should know

    1. There will be a brief outage during the change. For some, the outage may last up to 60 minutes depending on how quickly your region's DNS converges.
    2. If you connect directly using IP (I know some of our EU friends have had issues with DNS), then you will need to get the new IP after the update and update your bookmarks.


    Of course we will be available in Discord to assist any issues. Thank you for bearing with us as we try to handle the issues and please accept our apologies for the short notice and any interruption you experience.

    Hi SaltyDogg, the IP is at the link you quoted. Look underneath the line that says Server:

    Read and understood. Awaiting the new update, as of right now, all I get is "error".

    Icon4 DDoS Attacks and you

    For anyone not tech savvy enough to know, a DDoS (Direct Denial of Service) attack works very effectively if you pick the right delivery. Typically, someone pays a server farm (or a controller of a bunch of zombie clients - more on that at another time) to "ping" an IP address with tens of thousands of computers at the same time. This bottle-necks the destination IP and makes traffic come to a dead halt. Think of it as a two-lane road being suddenly bombarded with three thousand semi trailers at the same time.

    What makes this so hard to combat is the fact that all that traffic is coming from thousands of sources, so you can't just block the source.

    ISP's typically have counter-measures in place, and if our current TS provider can't utilize their ISP's anti-DDoS tools, we definitely should seek another host.

    There are 10 kinds of people in this world: Those who can count in binary and those who can't.
