Solved - it is probably your ISP (Australia Telstra correct ?)

You need to log into your account and turn "Telstra Protect" setting to "low"

I have reported urbanterror.info as a safe site but still can't connect without doing this.
Must be a new feature :-(


I have confirmed the fix by changing the setting back to "normal" and I once again can't auth

Edit: This just started happening to me today, I immediately went to the forum and was blocked by Telstra with a "malicious content" warning, that's how I worked out what was going on

Some screenshots of the warning/setting here: http://utfclan.net/v...=118&p=161#p161

Edit: I have re-read the thread and noticed that other countries are also effected.
They made a reference to their "security partners" sounds like it is outsourced so could be a global issue.
I would recommend you check with your ISP if they subscribe to a domain blocking service.

Hi All,

I may have been premature in my fix, it still seems to be happening.

Some further detail:

  • I run Ubuntu Linux
  • If I run the game and try to connect to a server, I get auth failed
  • If I then go to the main menu and click "log in" my auth key comes up as 0 (zero)
  • If I exit and re-run the game and go strait to "log in", my auth key is there
  • If I log in, I get a message saying exit and restart game for it to work
  • It doesn't, same problem
  • To get it to work, I must:
  • Run the game and click "log in", the "OK" then "Apply"
  • Do not exit, but click "log in", the "OK" then "Apply" (again)
  • Do not exit, I can now connect to servers until I exit the game
  • At no point does the "log in" change to "log out" as I would have expected


Also, if I run the updater, I get: ERROR: Failed to connect to API

Does anyone have any further info on this issue ?

I don't use Linux at all, so this is just a guess, but what are your read/write permissions?


All good (644 for the files and 755 for the folders)

Edit: My little hack above does not even work now.

Is it still happening to anyone ?

Generated a new game key last night, still didn't work.

Tried today and I got "your auth key is incorrect"

Edited it (is was zero again)

Finally accepted, "log in" now says "log out" and I can connect to servers again

Wahoo !
