Okay that means there is something on port 4000 to accept connections so telnet localhost 4000 will definately hit the mud. If you fail at that stage you should check the logs or add more log func calls to ensure the select() (or whatever you are using) is catching the fact there is incoming data to process and accept() gets called correctly to accept the link.

It is there definately on port 4000, its now a case of if you accept the connection completely

Got it just needed to add the ip binding patch with the addy to my ethernet card. Everything is working smoothly now. Thanks for the help. (Now if I could just find out how to get it to bind without the patch )

That's a bit odd that you'd need to force it to bind a particular IP just because it's an XP box. Hell, you only have one IP in most cases on XP. What else is it supposed to bind to? It would be rather odd to have it not work by using "localhost" or 127.0.0.1 as an address.... but hey. This is a Micro$loth product......

You're telling me its odd..

0.0.0.0 is EVERYTHING.. thus it is supposed to bind all the IPs available on the NIC. If you startup a mud without IP binding, and run a netstat -an and take a look, it will have bound 0.0.0.0, which means you can use any IP on the machine to access it.. (which gets on his nerves as on the box FE lives on he has his own paid for IP and people are binding his IP via this global bind..)

If you've bound 0.0.0.0 you should be ablt to telnet to the ethernet IP, localhost.. anything that would ref to that particular machine...

So if you can't... thats just plain wierd (or XP maybe applying some IP security?)

well i removed the ip binding patch to check out what ya'll were talking about, now it connects at any addy. the only thing i did different was when i installed xp pro i did an upgrade from 98se now i have a fresh install. the only thing i can figure is that it was some throw back to 98.
