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 byond.com
Request URL: http://www.byond.com/
Request Method: POST
Status Code: 503 Service Temporarily Unavailable
Remote Address: 126.96.36.199:80
Looking at the Response Body it contains the following:
"Checking your browser before accessing byond.com.
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:
The game should load even with client/authenticate set to 0.
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 http://www.byond.com/download/build to download old versions for testing.)
I've tested over 8 versions and none work.
