Anyone playing through 602Pro Lansuite?
Hello all

I wonder if there is anyone out there who has successfully configured 602Pro software's Lansuite proxy software to allow data through the necessary ports? I can't get past log-in.

I'm using the free 5-user version and have followed the instructions to map a link from any device on my network through the proxy on ports 4007 and 80 and out to ports 4007 and 80 on 64.95.126.131 - which is the IP for www.puzzlepirates.com

This hasn't done the trick. If anyone is more familiar with this software or something that works in a similar way I'd be grateful for their advice.

Thanks in advance

That's one of the IPs for www.puzzlepirates.com. There are two others. But I suspect none of them is what you want (or at least not all you need), as there are also two IPs for midnight.puzzlepirates.com.

Tried changing the mapped link to point to ports 4007 and 80 on 64.95.126.132 which is midnight.puzzlepirates.com but still no good.

Also tried pointing it to midnight.puzzlepirates.com instead of using the IP address but no difference. Thanks for the info, though.

Unfortunately, I don't think it's that simple. It seems to connect to more than one IP. Hopefully someone with Actual Knowledge will weigh in to head off more digging and speculation by me.

Re: Anyone playing through 602Pro Lansuite?
This is just my quick assesment from what I can tell on software 602's website:

I don't think mapped links will work. from what I can tell, a mapped link is not a "let this traffic through", it's a "when someone connects to the proxy on port X, forward the data to server y on port X"

You probably need to figure out a way to get YPP to use the socks proxy provided by the firewall, or use a firewall that supports NAT (Network Address Translation).

On the midnight.puzzlepirates.com addresses, what they have setup is a Round-robin DNS record, there are 2 IP addresses associated with the DNS name for midnight, and the DNS server will send out one of the 2 addresses when you query it. Alternating which one it sends each time, priving a cheap form of load balancing.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for that.

Most annoying - I think it's time to use a proper router!

Re: Anyone playing through 602Pro Lansuite?
Ye should also note that there are 3 midnight servers;
midnight1.puzzlepirates.com
midnight2.puzzlepirates.com
midnight3.puzzlepirates.com

Not sure if that even matters, jest thought I'd note it.

Aye, very good point. I was just going by the entries in the DNS record for midnight at that moment last night. Looks like midnight2 isn't currently in the rotation.
