LogAddress: Time out
From HLSW Wiki
Log Address: Timeout Troubleshooting
This is an error message within HLSW that can occur when an RCON administrator is trying to download the server logs. This wiki covers possible causes with solutions for this error.
If the "LogAdress: Time out!!!" - error message appears, HLSW tried to redirect the Server Log, but did not receive Server Logs in a specific period of time.
The problem is that many computers are wrong configured, so that network packets sent by the HL-Server cannot be received by HLSW. It is also possible that HLSW set a wrong IP/Port at the server and therefore you can´t receive the log. The simplest way to receive high quality essay papers is to come to the greatest essay writing services. I really know that some academic writing organizations provide reasonable prices.
HLSW uses port 7130 (UDP). With multiple startups the port number raises (7131, 7132, ...)! You can set the port using the parameter "-PORT:xxxx" on startup. You should use ports from 7130 to 7139 only. See below for more!
Notice that HLSW experiences this error messages also during times when your connection is not working properly. If you have many TCP/IP ports open (downloading files in segments like bit torrent) this can lag your internet connection to the point where its unuseable. You should try resetting your router, and modem (cable, dsl).
If Internet Connection Sharing (9x/ME) is activated or in use you won´t be able to receive Logs. No matter if you are ICS Server or Client. But you have a couple of possibilities:
- Deactivate ICS, if you are the ICS server.
- There is a tool available which you can use to configure the ICS to receive HLSW Log Files. The tool is availabe at http://www.csc-aachen.de.vu/icsconfig.htm. I don´t know exactly hot to configure the ICS to receive the logs but if you find a way, please post a detailed description to the forum.
- Don't use the windows ICS. There are a lot of other tools that can handle internet connection sharing for your local Intranet. WinGate (www.wingate.com) for example. Using this tool allows you to receive HLSW Log Files without any additional configuration.
This error message often occurs on computers behind a router. To enable HLSW to be able to retrieve the server log (which includes server chat, global player ID's, scores, etc), you will most likely need to tell your router where to send HLSW information (where to forward the port). To be able to do this, you must be able to access your router's access page (a website with your routers settings that you can change). You need to find a section called port forwarding, and it will ask you what you want forwarded. You should enter your computers static IP address (set it manually), and allow TCP connections on port 7130 (standard HLSW port).
Do not enable DMZ on your computer for this problem, as this allows HLSW, but also assures you will be hacked.
So, let say it again - you have to setup a port-forwarding for port 7130 (UDP) from the Router/Gateway to the LAN-Ip-Adress where HLSW is running! At portforward.com you can find a huge list of rounters with tutorials how to set up port-forwarding.
- Example for a Win2k Gateway
Properties of the dial-up Connection -> "Sharing" -> "Settings" -> Services
Add a news service. For name of the service enter "HLSW Service". The service port number, of course, is 7130, UDP. The name or address of server computer on private network is the IP-Adress where HLSW runs (eg 192.168.0.1).
- Setting up port-redirection on a linux router
/usr/sbin/ipmasqadm autofw -A -v -r tcp 7130 7130 -h $HLSW_IP /usr/sbin/ipmasqadm autofw -A -v -r udp 7130 7130 -h $HLSW_IP
(for "HLSW_IP" you have to give the IP where HLSW is running)
Receive Logs with more than one PC
You have to configure your Router/Gateway as shown above, but you give other port-numbers for every computer on LAN. That means port 7130 => PC1, 7131 => PC2, 7132 => PC3, etc. For PC2/PC3 you have to configure the correct Port (7131/7132) using the parameter "-PORT:xxxxx".
HLSW is using the wrong IP-Adress
If you are connected to the internet using the Dial-Up Networking you can solve the problem with a click on the "Get Log (LAN)" Button.
If you are connected via a Router or Gateway you have to enter the Log-Adress into the console manually to redirect the log. To do so enter the following into the console:
logaddress [Internet IPAddress] [Port]
logaddress 188.8.131.52 7130
If you dont know what ip you should enter , connect to game and check your ip in HLSW typing "status" ,next just get it and enter in console something like this:
logaddress_add 184.108.40.206 64376
