KGS Server Status

    Keywords: Online Go

Warning: Just because you are unable to connect to KGS, does not mean KGS is down. The problem might be on your end, at your provider, or somewhere in between. When reporting on this page, please use "<time> - Can't connect from <location>", rather than "KGS is down". If and when other people confirm this, the status can be updated. Please check [ext] http://www.greenwichmeantime.com/ for correct GMT. Also note that being banned, or having a Java security exception on your local machine are not pertinent to the KGS Server's status.

The server restarted several times today. Just before this, the server had several crashes, each less than 20 seconds apart. I suspect the admins disabled the ability to make new connections until they can figure out what is wrong and stabilize it.
