Wanted to give EVE a try, but I ran into a snag. I first started it and downloaded the patch, updating the client to the latest confirmed patch. Next to my login input box, I see Server: Tranquility, Status: Unknown.
"Could not connect to the specified address. Odds are that you have not established an internet connection, the server isn't running, or the server address or port number was wrong."
Tried opening the ports through my router, failed. Tried changing to the alternate provided port, failed. I've tried to ping the server, failed. Also followed every step on EVE's troubleshooting page for server connection problems, and none of them helped.
The only conclusion I seem to be able to draw, which was also echoed on that page, is that "It's not CCP's problem."
.. But in a good way.
