in reply to Re^4: Querying program port
in thread Querying program port

I did not say that I am uncomfortable with this. At this point I'm asking exactly what steps are involved. The descriptions that you have given appear to be incomplete. As I understand, most game servers speak various binary protocols, so simply sending "status" to a UDP(!) port is unlikely to do anything useful. What program are you typing "status" into?

Please read carefully and ask your friend if he has tried netstat.
