Thank you Ben Meyers for the reply - I figured I had the correct
procedure (as you have posted it) but seems that the problem may not be
on my end after all.
It is rather convoluted and esoteric matter but according to the
instructions of this site http://www.schtserv.com/connect-psodc.php
possible to play online with simple configuration of DNS settings.
However in private messaging with one of the game masters, it seems that
information contained therein is outdated so I concluded that DNS
setting must be outdated as well.
