HL2 DM server down?

Is anyone else having problems getting on to the Half Life 2 Death Match server? (212.159.6.226:27015)

I try to join the game and it goes through the usual loading screen and starts to download the map. Thing is that I've already got the map downloaded from a previous game and instead of downloading it, it just stays at 0% downloaded then after about 5-10 mins it jumps to half downloaded then after a similar time it starts the game.

Don't think it's my connection. Ping with the server is about the same as normal at around 50.

Thanks,
J Smiley

Aahhh this may explain why the server has been so quiet today! I just thought everyone was playing the BF2 demo. I'll go check now.

I have found the problem. Its to do with a file I uploaded yesterday to block people leeching maps off our server. For some reason its blocking access to everyone and I can't remove it.

I've disabled Fast Map Downloads until I come up with a solution :roll:

Server is back up now but downloading maps will be a fair bit slower.

Strangely... without me doing anything. The server has fixed itself this morning and everything is back to normal.

*poltergeist noises sound in the background* :shock:
