Tcp port 24000-24100

Trying to play Lexulous formerly known as Scrabulous. Cannot connect to the server. Tells me if I am on a wireless connection, to enable TCP ports 24000-24100. Its still not connecting. Odd however, that yesterday I played the game without any problem connecting. Help please/ I am having the same problem. I have been playing Lexulous(previously Scrabulous) for over a year without a problem. Now I can only get into the Blitz rooms. As far as I know, nothing has changed on my pc. I have tried a different modem without any joy. I have also contacted Lexulous who have failed to respond, which is unusual as they normally respond quickly. A friend in Greece can login OK using my details. This makes me wonder if its a server problem. My IP is Tiscali.
Any ideas anyone?

I would check your router's port forwarding settings and also make sure you have those ports listed in your windows firewall exceptions list.

Try these steps:

Let me know if that helps.

LINUX SQUID SERVER IN TRANSPARENT MODE


Dear Friend....
The examples below are based on the discussion of Linux iptables in Chapter 14, "Linux Firewalls Using iptables". Additional commands may be necessary for you particular network topology.
In both cases below, the firewall is connected to the Internet on interface eth0 and to the home network on interface eth1. The firewall is also the default gateway for the home network and handles network address translation on all the network's traffic to the Internet.
Only the Squid server has access to the Internet on port 80 (HTTP), because all HTTP traffic, except that coming from the Squid server, is redirected.
If the Squid server and firewall are the same server, all HTTP traffic from the home network is redirected to the firewall itself on the Squid port of 3128 and then only the firewall itself is allowed to access the Internet on port 80.
iptables -t nat -A PREROUTING -i eth1 -p tcp --dport 80 \
-j REDIRECT --to-port 3128
iptables -A INPUT -j ACCEPT -m state \
--state NEW,ESTABLISHED,RELATED -i eth1 -p tcp \
--dport 3128
iptables -A OUTPUT -j ACCEPT -m state \
--state NEW,ESTABLISHED,RELATED -o eth0 -p tcp \
--dport 80
iptables -A INPUT -j ACCEPT -m state \
--state ESTABLISHED,RELATED -i eth0 -p tcp \
--sport 80
iptables -A OUTPUT -j ACCEPT -m state \
--state ESTABLISHED,RELATED -o eth1 -p tcp \
--sport 80
Note: This example is specific to HTTP traffic. You won't be able to adapt this example to support HTTPS web browsing on TCP port 443, as that protocol specifically doesn't allow the insertion of a "man in the middle" server for security purposes. One solution is to add IP masquerading statements for port 443, or any other important traffic, immediately after the code snippet. This will allow non HTTP traffic to access the Internet without being cached by Squid.
If the Squid server and firewall are different servers, the statements are different. You need to set up iptables so that all connections to the Web, not originating from the Squid server, are actually converted into three connections; one from the Web browser client to the firewall and another from the firewall to the Squid server, which triggers the Squid server to make its own connection to the Web to service the request. The Squid server then gets the data and replies to the firewall which then relays this information to the Web browser client. The iptables program does all this using these NAT statements:
iptables -t nat -A PREROUTING -i eth1 -s ! 192.168.1.100 \
-p tcp --dport 80 -j DNAT --to 192.168.1.100:3128
iptables -t nat -A POSTROUTING -o eth1 -s 192.168.1.0/24 \
-d 192.168.1.100 -j SNAT --to 192.168.1.1
iptables -A FORWARD -s 192.168.1.0/24 -d 192.168.1.100 \
-i eth1 -o eth1 -m state
--state NEW,ESTABLISHED,RELATED \
-p tcp --dport 3128 -j ACCEPT
iptables -A FORWARD -d 192.168.1.0/24 -s 192.168.1.100 \
-i eth1 -o eth1 -m state --state ESTABLISHED,RELATED \
-p tcp --sport 3128 -j ACCEPT
In the first statement all HTTP traffic from the home network except from the Squid server at IP address 192.168.1.100 is redirected to the Squid server on port 3128 using destination NAT. The second statement makes this redirected traffic also undergo source NAT to make it appear as if it is coming from the firewall itself. The FORWARD statements are used to ensure the traffic is allowed to flow to the Squid server after the NAT process is complete. The unusual feature is that the NAT all takes place on one interface; that of the home network (eth1).
You will additionally have to make sure your firewall has rules to allow your Squid server to access the Internet on HTTP TCP port 80 as covered in Chapter 14, "Linux Firewalls Using iptables".

Good Luck!

Cannot connect to the Server when trying to play Lexulous


I started having the same problem. I have 3 macs, not PCs. Have spoken with other Mac users who can no longer access the game rooms on lexulous as of February 28. I went to the Apple store with my computer and they said those TCP ports were already enabled. Their take was that lexulous modified something on their website and did not do a "patch" or something to have it work for Mac users. I have emailed the site administrator but have not received a response, which is unusual.

Sure hope they fix this. Its weird that there is still a fair amount of traffic on their website.

Tcp port 24000-24100


Hi Sorry to hear you are having problems,
MacOS 10.4 has a firewall built into it ( Of course all MacOS X versions have firewalls ) that can have ports opened on it. You say it was working fine yesterday, did you change anything ?
Fastest and easiest way to open ALL TCP/IP ports is to turn off your FireWall for the time you are playing then re-activate it when you're done.
This can be done in the sharing pane of the System preferences, choose firewall and turn it OFF.
You could of course open just the ports 24000-24100 in the same preference pane...
But chances are it might be something else if you did not modify your system since yesterday.
Are you on the same network as yesterday? Are you able to play on another network ?

Opening ports would not work to play the game


Looks like others have had this problem and have fixed it by enabling UPnP on the router. I've never tried this myself as I don't play scrabulous--or other games, mostly for lack of time...

Having a prolem accessing a Hawking wireless camera from the internet.


Also In order to connect to your camera you may need to get access from your computer. I would ask a friend to send a signal from there computer to your computer and see what happens on your end. That may solve your problem.

Hope This Helps

Connection


If you're behind a firewall or using a proxy server, you may be unable to play Yahoo! Games. Firewalls need to open port 11999. You'll need TCP inbound and outbound access for this port. The games hosts are currently yog1.games.scd.yahoo.com, yog2.games.scd.yahoo.com, ... up to yog70.games.scd.yahoo.com. You'll need to do a ns-lookup on these hosts to find out the IP addresses.
