Going live

Flattr this!

As I’m writing this, I’m at Oslo Airport Gardermoen, waiting for a plane to take me back to Bodø.

Technically speaking, Kon Tiki was considered done a couple of days ago. I have procured a server at Accuwebhosting, and the Loginserver is currently running.

However, I am unable to log in with the client, most likely because of an issue known as NAT traversal. What this means is that packets sent from a client behind a router need to find their way to the server (which is also typically behind a router) and vice versa.

It is possible to do this manually by forwarding ports in one’s router, but I am trying to avoid this by programmatically forwarding ports. This means more code and a few more days of waiting, but everything good shall come to those who wait!
