Are they trying to connect to TMW's server? Or another public server? Or are you trying to host a server?

We have been trying to connect to TMW sever... it says first "Connecting to account server"--- then an error window pops up that reads "Couldn't connect to remote host"...

Do you mean my ip/dns server?

Thanks

No. Though the server admin might like that routing output. Try PMing her (Platyna). Seems to be a routing issue.

Thank you, I've sent her a message with the screenshot.

Also-- I think this is what you asked for...

name: sallycranberry
password: *******
server: server.themanaworld.org
port: 6901
recent: server.themanaworld.org:6901

One thing to also check: do you have firewalls or such (like your ISP) that's blocking the ports eAthena uses?
