The Premium Proxy Service is an approved EL proxy that recognizes the EL protocol and limits access to authorized users.
The benefits of using this proxy include avoiding port 2000 issues, taking different network routes to bypass bad connections, and experimental data compression with special setup on the client PC.
The experimental data compression won't help people with fast links, but might help people with slow links, such as dialup.
This service is stable with multiple servers available for different paths or reliability if the Net has issues.
The website support is not in place yet that would allow users to manage their account.
If you need this we cmake it available for a nominal fee.
Servers currently available for routing issues to paying users:
- lrnr-main (proxy1.other-life.com:443), 8-12ms to game server(UK)
- lrnr-main2 (proxy2.other-life.com:443), 120-160ms to game server(Canada)
This services is not intended for people to try to avoid illegal multi by changing your IP address, this service is specifically designed to allow illegal multi playing to be detected by the mods and handled appropriately.
The service fee covers up to 5 players connecting from your household being able to connect, but if you change a players name, the new name counts as another player.
