Uogateway owner here, question about ping packet
I run the site uogateway.com. I've had some Sphere shard owners occasionally have issues with their shard showing offline, as it is not sending the right info. I believe this is something that is an issue with older Sphere server versions and newer ones work. At least that is my understanding.

I am wondering, from a dev point of view, if there is anything I can do on my side to accommodate these old versions? Ex: are they expecting a different packet? It seems the issue is that the packet gets sent by the poller but the shard does not respond.

This is currently how the packet communication works: https://www.uogateway.com/forum/index.ph...c,4.0.html

This works with RunUO, ServUO and I think Polserver and newer versions of Sphere but if the fix to accommodate older versions is not too hard I will look at implementing it.

AFAIR, the older Spheres returns its information if you send a single byte (0x22 or a single double quote " ) right after opening the TCP socket.

Thanks will try that next time I run into it and if it works I'll update my poller to try it if the first attempt fails.
