Unable to retrieve patch date: 208 error

★★★★ Novice

Hi all,

 

Getting the 208 error. Gone through a whole bunch of fix attempts with the following:

 

  • Flushed DNS
  • Restarted computer
  • Restarted router
  • Checked Norton: both files are on "allow." 

My only fix was to disable my ethernet adaptor and connect via mobile USB tethering. It's the only way I can connect at the moment. 

 

I was in a Flashpoint, lost connection and this is where I am at the moment. I've attached my latest log file. 

 

Any help would be great. Cheers!

Looks like the issue is talking to http://manifest.swtor.com/patch/patcher2017.patchmanifest

 

can you ping manifest.swtor.com ? may be a routing issue which is why the mobile tether is working, if so it should correct on its own

 

Getting a different IP from a differewnt range on the modem may help too

I'll look at this but seems like SWTOR has gone down completely. Site down and servers down too. Or is it just me...?

@proxos666 Seems like I may not be the only one with the issue. Another user on Reddit is experiencing the same.

No, I'm with Exetel with an Opticomm fibre optic network. 

 

Looks like there were some wider issues last night. Eric Musco posted in my Reddit post about the servers/login server being down and said it was an issue they were looking into.
