Default The connection to the update server has been terminated?

Whenever I try to start Lineage II, I get a message that says 'The connection to the update server has been terminated.' What does it mean?

It means your connection to the update server has been terminated.

On a serious note, try opening your Lineage II\System folder and running l2.exe. If you're able to connect, avoiding the updater, you may want to try checking your firewall etc.

Mine is also down. The other way gives a gg error.

Its doing the same thing on my desktop, but my laptop is working fine. I bypassed it and logged in fine. I will have to update one day though so I need to figure this out.

I didnt check my firewall settings because there is no reason it should have changed. This happened after the down time yesterday.

Try turning AV's off. Sometimes definition updates block L2 stuff.

Also, Start > Run > cmd.exe

C:\> ipconfig /flushdns (must be administrator)

Failing that submit a support ticket.

also check firewall settings and check with you ISP.

also try this tool from NCSoft:
ftp://ftp.lineage2.com/support_tool/...allOS_USEU.exe

then check the log it creates

Just got the same error. I have no firewall and my Windows settings are the same as before, didn't change any OS/security settings/etc. since my last successfull connection on Monday (yesterday just didn't have time for the game).

EDIT: flushdns works!!! thanks for reminding this solution Now I finally can log in.

Veritas1, for your specific one, check the threads about extended maintenance.

Noone is able to update at the time of your posting.
