    Hello tavana

    We recently had a couple of players, including you, reporting that they cannot join our server due to the 2500 ping problem. It turns out that what all of you have in common is being from Iran, which as we know has some internet censorship issues, so the problem might be on your ISPs part, or on our host interacting with your ISP.
    Our system admins have looked into multiple things that might have something to do with this issue but they haven't been able to find anything on our part at this time.
    We will continue to look into this and communicate with you if anything arises, please let us know if anything changes in the meanwhile.
    As a side note it might be worthwhile to check RealityMod forums to search for other users who might have had this problem and maybe find a solution that works for you.

    Hi tavana,
    I've recently looked into your problem and it indeed seems to be an issue with your country's filtering. I can't tell you why it's particularily blocking prbf2 related network ports on our server but it seems to be a fact. As you rightfully pointed out, the block isn't IP based. Hence why you still can access other services like our prbf2 Mumble server.

    You are not the only Iranian player having this issue right now. There is at least 2 other players of which one made a forum appeal just like you and another one contacting me via discord.

    If you are adventurous you could install a little linux in a virtual machine, install nmap on it and do a UDP traceroute scan to port 16567 on eu1.prta.co. That may show you where exactly your packets are filtered out.
    Code (Text):
    1. nmap -T5 -sU -traceroute -p 16567 eu1.prta.co

    I hope your country is not going to permanently block UDP traffic to us and I am sorry, that I don't have better news for you.

    Best regards,
    tobi

    Yea, there's zenmap. I wanted to recommend traceroute at first and there wasn't a version capable of doing UDP traces on windows. At least none for free. Then I realized that UDP traces with traceroute don't reach our server for some reason. Traces always stop at the last routing server. Dunno why, I am a bit rusty with traceroute and thought if I can't do it that easily then I shouldn't recommend using it. So I ended up replacing traceroute with nmap in the text. I didn't think about the windows version at that moment anymore. :facepalma: :biggrin:

    So yea, as temexter said, just install zenmap from the link he provided. That's a lot lot easier. :thumbsup:
