The launcher works great and says the server is online. I can login and launch the client, but client will not connect to the server. It reads: Unable to connect to on port 26000
Shut up

Doing this:

but the otherwaya round and in the sharedcache directory under your specific settigns fixed it for me. Seems CCP nuked the possibility of using the 3724 port and need to use the 26000 now. Why? I have no idea and prolly they dont either =p

Getting proxy server not connected to sol error.

Not happy, I'm not one to complain about the MASSIVE amount of bugs in a game, but feel very ripped off RL.

I am getting the same thing, left Launcher running over night after logging off from last nights issues (Where, even after I managed to get online I couldn't add plex to my alt).

I am getting the error message "Proxy not connected to sol servers"

17,049 players online, but apparently I have an incompatible build, yet no update available (using new Launcher)

See I checked that before posting here, was on Twitter for about 5 minutes before coming here. (only signed up to Twitter yesterday for this exact reason >< ) Was no Eve_Status update til 2 minutes ago, but this problem seems to have been here longer.

Every time it's early downtime. Internet much ISK scammers (not you)?

EDIT: I retract that, it's well worded, but this forum needs a direct feed to the twitter because this is so common.

At least they should notify soon :(( . I am ratting when EVE crashed , will i have any problem ??

I pay for playing EVE , they should treat player -customer better than pull the server down without notify. >.<

Eve Offline is a great site I use to determine whether its Eve or just me that has a problem.

Praise be to Chribba.
