addr_server.exe for Win32
« on: September 19, 2006, 01:29:15 am »
Cratylus,



Would you consider releasing addr_server.exe in the next win32 release. I have been running it on 2.1 via the wscript files I wrote and it is working for me as expected, even during a reboot.



I would like to do some further testing on the latest release.

Saq,



I'd meant to remove addr_server.exe from the 2.1 distribution,

but somehow it found its way back in there.



The reason is that using it appears to have made people's

muds crash, and so few people actually tried that it seemed

not worth the time to track down why.



Recently someone supplied me with a sockets fix for

MudOS that might fix this problem. If it does, then I

will put addr_server.exe back in the distro.



Otherwise, I feel that including an executable whose use

causes the mud to fail is something I'd like to avoid.

Thanks for update. I shoud get around to posting the wscript to run the mud on Windows on the new forums, as I found it to be more stable than running the standard batch files.
