I've been browsing the forums, trying to solve my problems when trying to connect to FS2net.
Mac OS X, running fs open 3.6.9. I got a fresh copy of everything last night, via the java installer (which is pretty sweet).
At first, my symptom was the infamous 'hacked tables'. When I took the media files out of my main directory this went away. I now see "validating tables" followed by "logging in". Each of these messages stays up for quite a while (20 seconds or so). Then the program quits. Once I thought I saw a brief flicker of some other window just before it crashed.
I've got every port open on my router, and firewall turned off. (Security be damned!) I've had no problem hosting or being a client using a direct TCP connection, so I don't think it's a port issue.
Any notion what this could be?
