Thanks, pretty sure I did exactly that last night using the planetweb3.0 disc and that IP, not sure if I did it correctly though as there were some bits I just left blank. I'll try it again tonight.
I might try the boot disc but will have to refamiliarise myself with burning cdr's lol, should be all good though.
@Bluecrab, if I have attempted to setup the DNS redirect/trick stuff and THEN try to use the patcher 2.0, will there be any issues? Do I have to reset the settings? Or does the patcher just sort it all out?
If the patcher 2.0 disc will do everything itself then that will be the simplest way to go, just annoying to me from an IT support background point of view, that I can't get the connection to work using the DNS trick
I was playing around with it last night but couldn't remember all the settings, and its possible I used the wrong IP
Previously I used the XDP browser to set this up, using the video I created below... but this was back in 2012. I didn't need to do anything with Doctor DNS or static IPs etc, just the XDP browser and setting up the DNS1 with the IP. So I'll try it again tonight with the new IP and see how it goeshttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=prFzenv6mew
