Default Question on Hosts file

Can anyone tell me what this file *should* say with regards to L2? I have been unable to connect to the game since the last patch or even the website for that matter. I deleted out the entry for L2 in my Hosts file and I can now at least get to the website. I am assuming PlayNC changed their server IPs...

Thx for any assistance..

Default Re: Question on Hosts file

You don't need to edit your hosts file for playing on the offical servers (including PTS).

The Windows setup default file says only:

127.0.0.1 localhost

Try going to Start, Run, CMD and click ok, then type IPCONFIG /FLUSHDNS and hit enter.
Then access it again.

Default Re: Question on Hosts file

If you had entries in your hosts file you where ether trying to force a dns resolve, the problem with this is if anything changes your screwed.

Or it was a private server redirect.

Anyways what ever it is there should be no reference to L2 in your hosts file, and if you have to do a dns resolve its only a tempory thing.
