Unread post Strange Activity on TWGS
I was just looking at my server and found 4 connections that looked really strange. The users all showed as init. never established a game connection? I checked the IP addresses and found all 4 come from China. Any ideas what they are doing???
Addresses are
220.248.163.127
180.141.58.82
113.138.147.241
171.104.239.88

probably just pissy little hackers trying to get in or someone trying to spam your server.

Most likely trying to steal the game and resell it at a discount.

They probably think they are hacking firewall, and never heard of TradeWars.

So probably no harm can be done by them hitting the game server???

What port are you using? Everyone knows port 23 is for telnet, you can change your game port # to something different. I think most here use port 2002. I think this cuts down on kiddie hack attacks.
