Trouble Logging In on Comet Source

1
Hey! 👋 I could use some help with an issue I'm encountering while trying to run the Comet source server.

I recently started learning C# and decided to create my own server using the Comet source. I followed the instructions provided on the page meticulously. Everything seemed smooth until I tried to log in to the client.

The problem is, that I keep getting an error message saying "server maintenance." But as far as I can tell, the server should be up and running.


I'm using client version 5187, which was provided by Spirited. I've also cross-checked the IP address inside the config file and on the loader, and they both seem to be correct.
Using conquer loader!
Has anyone else faced this issue before? Any ideas on how to resolve it?
Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated!
attached screenshot of the issue!

Oops, copying and pasting what I put on epvp.

Is the IP address you're using your public IP? Or is it a private one within your home network (usually in the format 192.168.x.x)? If it's a public IP address, then make sure you're port forwarding correctly (there're guides on how to do that with your router if you're not familiar with what port forwarding is). Also, make sure you have the ports punched out in your firewall (whether it's a public or private IP).

you catch me :'D looking for solution

Thanks for your reply, yes I did it.
i was looking for a solution on google and found a thread for you speaking about common issues like "server maintenance" and how to forward port to fix it.
i make it and still get this message.

check the screenshots for port forward

What does your LoaderSet.ini file look like?

I redownloaded Conquer Loader from the official site and checked it again. attach screenshot files inside.
Oh, I'm not familiar with that loader. This is the one we use here:
co-private-servers/guide-client-downloads-t8.html

Though, it doesn't have a workaround for flash built into it.

If that loader also doesn't work, then I'd check the realms table and make sure the server name is correct there. It looks like you're using Storm, so that's what I'd expect to see in the realms table.

It works now, work with the loader you posted.
Many thanks bro
