I am behind a firewall that blocks me from connecting to the chat service, so I created a tunnel and have successfully been tunnelling chat (port 5222) through it and it has been working great – up until about 3 days ago, now I can no longer connect.
Did something change, like the port number?
Please let me know. Thanks.
Well, after some digging (I am way too persistent) I have found the solution. Turns out I needed to connect to a.kongregate.com, not chat.kongregate.com. I am now successfully connecting to the chat server from behind a firewall.
