Well, i'm sure you all know about (legal) private servers, and i'm trying to connect to this one at http://s12.invisionf...mpire/index.php? but it's not working, but before i used to get it to work. This is how they get you to connect to their private server.

(I have Windows XP)

You go to C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc and open up the "hosts" file with a text editor. Then you edit it from:
# Copyright © 1993-1999 Microsoft Corp.
#
# This is a sample HOSTS file used by Microsoft TCP/IP for Windows.
#
# This file contains the mappings of IP addresses to host names. Each
# entry should be kept on an individual line. The IP address should
# be placed in the first column followed by the corresponding host name.
# The IP address and the host name should be separated by at least one
# space.
#
# Additionally, comments (such as these) may be inserted on individual
# lines or following the machine name denoted by a '#' symbol.
#
# For example:
#
# 102.54.94.97 rhino.acme.com # source server
# 38.25.63.10 x.acme.com # x client host

127.0.0.1 localhost

24.161.199.248 L2authd.lineage2.com

Now before, i used to be able to connect to them just fine, but i stopped playing on their server, and i replaced the hosts file with a backup i made before i edited anything. Later, my friend tried to get me to play agian, and i did the exact same thing as i always do, but instead, it tries to connect to the Lineage 2 Official server, and when i try to log in, it tells me that my account has expired (since i used to have an account on Lineage 2 Official). I tried a random name and password, and it just told me that the account did not exist, which confirms that i'm linking to the official server since L2Empire (the private server) auto-creates accounts at log-in.

Could anyone out there help me?

Thanks guys for reading this lengthy post btw, :tazz:

Edit: Eh... i noticed not many people are helping... oh yeah heres something i forgot to mention, back when i had Microsoft Antispyware it asked me if i wanted to make a system change when i edited the hosts file. I clicked yes, and it worked. After i replaced it with the backup i made, i tried to edit it agian, and antispyware said that the system change was allowed based on a prior decision, but i don't know if it's really allowing the change.
