UOTrace "socket error getting server list"

Discussion in 'UO Resources' started by Marshall Inc., Oct 30, 2009.

  1. I downloaded UOTrace off the uo.com website because I've been experiencing lag spikes over the past few days and thought I'd try to pinpoint the problem. Most of the technical aspects around the program escape me, but I figure once I pinpoint the problem I can go from there to see if it's something I can fix. How do I fix this error? Thanks

    This more than likely is due to some firewall magic happening on your end.

    Try this.

    1. Click start
    2. Click RUN
    3. In the run box type cmd and press enter
    4. In the black box that pops up, type the following, without quotes:

    "tracert shard_name_all_one_word.owo.com"

    i.e. for Lake Superior, it would be "tracert lakesuperior.owo.com"

    Copy and paste the response you get in this thread, or in the other lag thread.

    yes, the ability to download the server list has actually been gone for quite some time (longer than I've been playing, in fact).

    you have to hand-build the list for your own servers.

    Of course, you can ALSO use uotrace to trace and poll NON-UO addresses, making it a fairly useful utility for confounding tech guys everywhere when you make a service call.
