Newbies: Connection Tips

Postby Mantorok » Sun Feb 28, 2016 6:14 pm

Reading that other thread and the troubles connecting via telnet made me realize that could be a real issue for people wanting to try it. So I wanna post this here to clarify how to fix it:

Our reboot time is at midnight server (US EAS) time, and takes 5 minutes roughly. On Friday night we have a long reboot of about 30 - 35 minutes.

Telnet is disabled in Windows 10 by default. Use this link to enable it

The new connection for the MUD is:

game.wotmud.org
port 2224

Some free clients for MUDs on your main computer include:
Ashavar's Legacy
Mudlet
tintin++
tinyfugue

I also found this link:
http://www.mudconnect.com/resources/Mud ... ients.html but I can't attest to any of those part from Zmud personally.

If any new people have further trouble connecting, or want advice about available clients, just let us know here. There is a large amount of available clients for PC/Laptop, as well as mobile platforms such as Kindle, Android devices, and Iphone/IPad. Suggestions for these can be found online, such as:

Mudrammer (Apple products)
Blowtorch (Android devices)

Both of which are found in their respective stores for free.

Had to use this a lot lately. Can I get a sticky for it so it's visible?

Recently figured out that cmud has an issue working through a firewall. I suggest you create an exception in you firewall for cmud and allow the ip adress to be excluded from being scanned by you security program. Ip is 72.52.169.8 for the game.
