Server Migration Completed: Issues?
« on: 07 February 2012, 16:32:00 »
As you may know, we have recently migrated servers. The new machine is substantially more powerful, which has improved the performance of all CGL hosted websites, forums and the BattleShop store. Near as we can tell, there are no major issues, but if you've noticed something out of whack, please post it here.


If someone you know is having trouble accessing the site, the below might help them:



Windows:

Go to Start | Run, or type WinKey-R
Type "cmd", Enter
type "ipconfig /flushdns" and hit ENTER
type "ping www.battlecorps.com" and hit ENTER

If text comes up and says this:
Pinging catalystgamelabs.com [67.192.254.201] with 32 bytes of data:

You're on the new server.  If it says [74.205.126.241], you're seeing the old server.

If you want to force yourself to see the new server, open up C:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts in Notepad, and add this line:
67.192.254.201 catalystgamelabs.com www.catalystgamelabs.com bg.battletech.com www.battletech.com battletech.com www.battlecorps.com battlecorps.com shadowrun4.com www.shadowrun4.com forums.shadowrun4.com monstersinthesky.com www.monstersinthesky.com forums.monstersinthesky.com starchallengers.com www.starchallengers.com

It appears that the link to the EPub novel page is not working:

http://www.battletech.com/?page_id=3166

Also the epub novels are not available on Amazon at the moment.

Thanks for looking into it!

Ah bummer about the novels. Hope they're back soon. Thanks for the reply.
