So... I have edited the source code of dpmaster and change the timeout value from 2 seconds to 60 seconds, to see if that works better this way.
If it still doesn't work, maybe I should ask again to Tequila if there is something bad in the firewall...


I would assume the latter is correct :|

So, I still don't have any response from Tequila, and since we need to move quickly, I have done something usefull: now the built-in server tracker scan all master server found, not only sv_master1 (SVN r631).

If master.smokinguns.fr is not ready, it will not slowdown the release process, since parttimegeeks and q3alive can be used as backup (sv_master2 and sv_master3).

Additionnally, I set up a master server on my virtual private server:
soulserv.net:27950

It looks like this one is working better.

master.smokinguns.fr is now empty (not even Q3alive.Net is listed):

soulserv.net lists all three Bude servers:

You could use qstat -q3m soulserv.net to query the public state your master server.

@ The Doctor:
Thanks for adding soulserv.net to all your server. ;)

For master.smokinguns.fr, I have done some testing with Wireshark (run localy), it looks like no packet can go out. The master server receive heartbeat, send response, but the response is either not routed out, or is simply blocked... Anyway, I can't solve it by myself, I have no idea how his server network is built: the server itself has no iptables rules, so I guess there is a gateway doing the job... I give up.

Anyway, since the next beta will be able to use all master server available, that's not really a problem, and we will avoid single point of failure in the futur...

You should nonetheless promote ONE official master server ala master.smokin-guns.org (and CNAME it to one of the working masters).
This allows you to easily fix things even when binaries have already been released.

For instance, master.smokinguns.fr IS the official master server.

If Tequila feels like this, he can point master.smokin-guns.org:27950 to the same server/service than master.smokinguns.fr.
I agree that it make more sense. (but for the record, we get smokin-guns.org only few days ago).

Note that the firewall issue is solved on master.smokinguns.fr.

ATM, we have got 4 master server:
- master.smokinguns.fr ==> official
- soulserv.net:27950 ==> half-official (since it's my own server and I'm a Dev member, it will not disappears suddenly)
- master.q3alive.net ==> 3rd party
- parttimegeeks.net:27950 ==> 3rd party


Also a big improvement is that the built-in game tracker of the client of the next beta (1.1beta5b) support up to 5 master server.
So we can avoid single point of failure: if the official master server is down, we will not revive the master server crisis we have got.
