BTW, we have this problem at least once a year on the Tribes 2 auth
servers, and have figured out how to bring up Internet servers in LAN mode
(which doesn't require auth) during the outage. Does BF2 LAN mode require
auth servers? What kinds of restrictions are there in running a LAN server?
For T2, the server wouldn't allow connections from outside it's class B, so
a UDP proxy could be used to bypass the check. Now when the auth servers go
down, all the big servers are full in an hour or so after switching to LAN
mode. (This inevitably happens on a Friday night and the auth servers stay
down the whole weekend.)
