but no, afaik is valve rotating IP's too much to keep a "fixed" allow list or w/e.

if I remember correctly on the linux list there was some time (3-9 months) ago mentioned some script that needed regular running to update that IP list or w/e.

Hey guys,


My datacenter was being targeted by some aggressive assaults lately and decided to implemment a rather restrictive firewall that requires our operator to manually whitelist the valve servers everytime there's an update.

Is there a list of the update servers addresses avaliable somewhere!? So we can add them all at once?

Cause the system went back to manual updates for the past few weeks and that makes the proccess very laborious and slow.


Thanks in advance!

Re: Workaround to a update being blocked

Not sure, but whitelisting all their content servers might help:

Re: Workaround to a update being blocked

<at> kirby "Get a new datacenter. " Geez, man. Thanks. That was the kind of answer I was looking for. ¬¬

<at> Mart: Did a quick search and didn't find anything about it. Do you remember any detail that might help searching for it through the list?

<at> Jevgenjj: If only it had a list of IPs... but most of them are just #numbers which reverse to nothing concrete. So no luck there. Thanks for sharing, though.

Re: Workaround to a update being blocked

That's an incredibly restrictive firewall for a datacenter... from my experience most datacenters are able to isolate specific patterns or types of data and be very specific about their blocks rather than just doing a blanket blocking.

Secondly, I seem to remember a way of manually setting what server the update actually pulled from was posted on this mailing list. Unfortunately, I also do not remember and can't seem to find it. Does anyone remember where it was that you could edit a file to manually put in what server you wanted to pull from?

&gt; My datacenter was being targeted by some aggressive assaults lately and<br>
&gt; decided to implemment a rather restrictive firewall that requires our<br>
&gt; operator to manually whitelist the valve servers everytime there's an<br>
&gt; update.<br>
&gt;<br>
&gt; Is there a list of the update servers addresses avaliable somewhere!? So we<br>
&gt; can add them all at once?<br>
&gt;<br>
&gt; Cause the system went back to manual updates for the past few weeks and that<br>
&gt; makes the proccess very laborious and slow.<br>
&gt;<br>
&gt;<br>

Re: Workaround to a update being blocked

Which Datacenter is this so the Valve Community can stay away from it.

                      &gt; Is there a list of the update servers

Re: Workaround to a update being blocked

Oh... that might actually help, even if it doesn't work at all times.

I'm a bit confused, though. Was "123 150 229" supposed to what? Doesn't look like a valid IP number.

Many thanks!

Re: Workaround to a update being blocked

Those are content server numbers which are listed here http://store.steampowered.com/stats/content/

There are no IP's listed for any content servers and those IP's are not listed anywhere either.

Oh... that might actually help, even if it doesn't work at all times.

I'm a bit confused, though. Was "123 150 229" supposed to what? Doesn't look like a valid IP number.

Many thanks!

That's an incredibly restrictive firewall for a datacenter... from my experience most datacenters are able to isolate specific patterns or types of data and be very specific about their blocks rather than just doing a blanket blocking.

Secondly, I seem to remember a way of manually setting what server the update actually pulled from was posted on this mailing list. Unfortunately, I also do not remember and can't seem to find it. Does anyone remember where it was that you could edit a file to manually put in what server you wanted to pull from?

<at> Jevgenjj: If only it had a list of IPs... but most of them are just #numbers which reverse to nothing concrete. So no luck there. Thanks for sharing, though.

                                  &gt; Cause the system went back to
                                  manual updates for the past few weeks

Fwd: [hlds_linux] Friendly warning, map exploits on the wild, upwad & frontier

There seems to be a couple of exploits on both of these maps. Frontier 
has sentries inside the wall, pretty much same kind as yukon had earlier 
and another rear end of the pit where engies can shoot themselves to and 
build teleports. Upward has deathtrap tele and ability to build on some 
of the roofs. Watch your servers when those maps are on

No setmasters on pc that have Steam installed

Hi!

I'm not sure if this is a hlds or steam issue, but here we go:

It seems that i got an issue here. Any GoldSrc server that runs on a pc that
have Steam installed wont show up on masterserver.
There are no setmaster ips, and if i add manually, it give me a error 
invalid address". 

] setmaster
Usage:
Setmaster <add | remove | enable | disable> <IP:port>
Current:  None
] setmaster add 68.177.101.62:27013
 Invalid address "68.177.101.62:27013", setmaster command ignored

Now if i uninstall Steam completely and run hlds, everything works like a
charm!

] setmaster
Usage:
Setmaster <add | remove | enable | disable> <IP:port>
Current:
  0:  69.28.158.131:27011
  1:  68.177.101.62:27013

All tested on a clean hlds install. Just tested everything 4 times on 3
differents PCs, all same issue.

When i tried remove steam with hlds opened, it doesn't remove some dlls
because that was be used by hlds (standalone version!) instead of dlls in
hlds folder (steam.dll, steamclient.dll and so on).

So it's possible to fix that (to avoid hlds standalone to try use dlls from
Steam folder) ?

And sorry for mistakes, english isn't my native lang :D
