What does the error message say? Are you entering the GAME-password, not the WEB-password?
Exactly, you need to set your GAME password HERE then use it for logging in the game.

Anyone help please?
Maybe the TCP packets are getting through but the UDP ones are not (they are used for the List of Hosts - and we don't know if you are having a problem with sending or receiving them - could be either).

What happens if you see the list of hosts at LFS World:
https://www.lfsworld.net/?win=hosts&whichTab=licensed

And you can try the "join" links or alternatively type the name into LFS in "Join Specific Host". This might give you more information.

I don't know why UDP packets wouldn't get through but it could be something to do with your ISP.

sounds like my problem aswell. would also perhaps explain the laghits i experience wouldnt it?

(just thinking out loud) :
could it have anything to do with all the updates on the internet these days ? i mean half the internet is updating stuff now.. just thinking it could clutter or something on some connections maybe..
i started getting weird issues from an official update that later got rolled back. and since the rollback my system started acting weird. i think the update was for .NET and therefore maybe could have some influence perhaps ?



EDIT: i got updates to my browsers now regarding scripts. not sure if could have any influence, but what i experienced was being logged into LFS and facebook at the same time , shut down my entire system as scripts couldnt read. as it shuts down with no warning at all i cant really know exactly what its doing as no files are made for checking it. sort of.. also reason i cant reproduce it on purpose. if i didnt go online in a browser at the same time as being logged into LFS, i had no trouble with LFS at all. but it does have a load issue sometimes on graphics. havent tested it yet nor have i reproduced it yet. but getting to it soon.
My 'Schumie' server is failed. On my config page it says 'Stopped'. I attempt to start it and answers that there is already a server working by the same name, when there isn't one in the M/P list! Help please?

Looks to me a firewall problem blocking LFS. Try turning firewall off and try to unlock then.
Yepper was one of the first things I tried but no cigar ! Was able to sighn on to do update but don't understand why it won't hook up to master now.
Master server doesnt work for me, nor for any of 40 people trying to race on FM fox server.

It happened yesterday also, LFS.net also didnt work.

Same for me. Can't connect to the master server for an hour or so. At least I know now that this is not exactly my connection problem
It's down for all of us
Yeah down. Another DDoS?
still down Frown
Was there anything resolved form the attacks? I seem to have missed scawen even noticing that there was something wrong.

Is a fix to prevent future attacks in place? Or do we just hope that who ever did it has better things to do next time we try to organize 40 car race?
Quote from NumberTwo :Is a fix to prevent future attacks in place?

You can't fix idiots with destructive thinking. Well,other than inprison them or... Well,you know. Internet gives people a lot of freedom,unfortunatelly also for virtual terorism,where most can hide and stay unidentified after their cowardly attacks.
