Why is the teamspeak server still down if it wasn't affected?

Just a quick update on this.
I need to build an IP filter for the TS server before I launch it again, this will limit traffic to NZ users.

I was hoping to have it back up on Wednesday but got very tied up, ill have a crack at it tonight.

So what's the deal if someone has a friend from another country they want to talk to? Surely I'm not the only one? Seems like an unnecessary feature considering if it's just for the Teamspeak it won't stop DDoS attacks.

You are correct, the only problem is that the DDOS burned through a part of our data, so ill be limiting international users for the remainder of the month.

ETA: Coding almost done, am getting a bite to eat and will have the TeamSpeak server back online tonight.

I'm kind of confused, why limit international users? Either way you are still using the data, you would almost definitely save more data by just turning the channel quality down a tad. Or does data used within the country not count towards your limit?

Correct.

Teamspeak is back online, it may run a little slow until I make a couple of updates tomorrow.

For the Tech's:
The IP filter works, but has not yet been multithreaded, I will sort that out this weekend, once I have done that it will run like the filter didn't even exist.

Terrible joke incoming..
How often do you need to clean the filter? :P
