"Can't get GUI version when offline"

Is the server down again? this happened the other day when there were connectivity issues. It lasted for a few hours after downtime then the launcher decided to work. But now it’s not working.

This is happening both on my windows PC and linux PC. Both have their firewalls set to off (if my memory is correct).

I’ve checked my firewall, no mention of EVE in there. It’s not blocked by anything.

EDIT: I’ve determined that this problem is caused by bad DNS servers. changing the network settings to use Google’s DNS (8.8.8.8) resolved the problem.
