Jumping on the "me too" bandwagon.

Same error, with the Steam version.

I'm not sure exactly how this works, but I've stolen money successfully about five times, and gotten busted once. The one time I got busted I was trying to steal 700000c. It is possible that the speed with which the banks trace you is somehow related to the amount of money being transferred. All my ...

Having serious trouble with a LAN mission

My mission is to delete all the files on a server inside a LAN. I hacked into the LAN, went through all the locks and eventually found a dial-up number. I reconnected to the dial-up number and found myself in a subnet containing nothing except the modem I connected on, and the Main Server. When I co...

Also, if you have a Monitor Bypass already, a Proxy Disable will work just as well as a proxy bypass I did end up using the Proxy Disable as an interim measure until I could afford the Bypass. What does having the Monitor Bypass have to do with it though? I'm quite sure that you can use a Proxy Dis...

Hey all, I'm trying to get Simply Uplink working. Looks like things have been moving slowly on this mod of late, and the author hasn't been seen in a while, but just thought I'd ask in case someone knows what's going on. While trying to create a new profile, I get asked for a CD verification code. I...

Okay I've now taken three trace-hacker missions in a row where the trail either dead-ends, or it ends up at a personal computer and the employer won't accept the name. I suppose it's possible that the logs are being falsified ... but there's no way I can check that without bypassing the Proxy on the...

InterNIC is listed in the bookmarks you have at the start of the game.

It's an Internet information server, has the names and IP addresses of all publically availables nodes on the Net.

It's a free public service, hence the low security.

Problems with hacker-tracing mission

I'm on a mission to trace another hacker. I've completed one trace mission successfully, this is my second. I tracked down one of his bounces was through the Academic Database. When I hacked into the IAD to check their logs, I came up blank. That system is one of my regular bounces, so the logs are ...

Okay, this time I found a "Security" section on a system, and it listed: Monitor: Enabled Proxy: Enabled Firewall: Enabled When I clicked on the Proxy, it popped up a message saying "Access blocked by Proxy". So ... if the Proxy is preventing me from disabling the proxy ...

There wasn't a "Security" section on the system I was on. I could have sworn the system had a Proxy though ... maybe I was mistaken.

Disproportioned missions

I had a mission pop up today at Difficulty Rating 6 (auto-accept at Skilled), which requires 80 Gq of free space. Is it just me, or is that a little bit insane? I don't even have 10 Gq of free space, and I've upgraded my gateway as much as I can afford to. My rating is Skilled right now, and there's...

I ended up just buying it from the IV store. The reason I don't want the CD is severalfold: 1. If I already have the game via download, the CD is really totally pointless. It's just taking up space. 2. I had to pay extra for Uplink to cover the postage of an item that doesn't actually serve any purp...

Disabling a Proxy / Firewall / Monitor as admin?

Hey guys, Reading through the Help files on Uplink Internal Services, it says that you can disable a Proxy if you have admin access to the system. How is this done? I got admin on the target system, went into the "Admin" menu and all I got was the "View Logs" option. FWIW, I do k...
