not connecting - how to fix
Monday, July 7, 2008 5:14 PDT -07:00 Featured
Ares users have been reporting the return of the problems getting Ares connecting to the network. The problem is in the servers used for the initial connection to the Ares network, making it difficult for users to connect the first time they start Ares.
Once Ares starts and connects to its network, it has a list of `reliable' IP addresses and keeps them for the next time you fire Ares up, so it's really just the initial connection that is a problem.
Ares Vista has solved the problem with an advanced technique for pushing an updated list of host servers out to users to connect to, so is not dependent on the initial list of cnodes like the older versions such as Ares Galaxy are.
It might be a hassle changing over but the 15 minutes it takes to download and install the new version of Ares vista will save you much frustration.
I got to fix it. if any questions just email me email@example.com
