BYOND Version:N/A (Website Bug)
Operating System:Windows 10 Home 64-bit
Web Browser:Firefox 75.0
Applies to:Webclient
Status: Open

Issue hasn't been assigned a status value.
Descriptive Problem Summary:
When attempting to join a game through WebClient, DreamDaemon rejects the connection with the following error message: BYOND Error: failed to certify (null) from ip ****** origin ******:2000

Looking at the browser's logs I see a failed Post request to

Request URL:
Request Method: POST
Status Code: 503 Service Temporarily Unavailable
Remote Address:
command: keyreq
url: http://****:2000

Looking at the Response Body it contains the following:

"Checking your browser before accessing
This process is automatic. Your browser will redirect to your requested content shortly.Please allow up to 5 seconds."

I assume that CloudFare's ddos protection is blocking the request for a key.

Numbered Steps to Reproduce Problem:
Make an empty game, host and connect through the web client.

OR connect to:

Expected Results:
The game should load even with client/authenticate set to 0.
Actual Results:
The connection is forefully ended by Dream Daemon.
Does the problem occur:
Every time? Or how often?
Every time. (Web client is unusable)
The Http Post error doesn't always happen but DD closes the connection regardless. Note that there is the following message also: Version: 512, 498

Did the problem NOT occur in any earlier versions? If so, what was the last version that worked? (Visit to download old versions for testing.)
I've tested over 8 versions and none work.
Yeah this is a bug with the web client that has been around for at least a year now. Definitely not a server-side problem. I really wish we could see this get fixed.
