TeamSpeak - failed to connect to server

Linode Staff

I have a TeamSpeak server installed on my Linode but i cant access the server as it tells me failed to connect to server. Any suggestions?

Failed to connect is a pretty generic error that could be caused by a variety of factors. Here are a few things that I would suggest trying first:

  1. Your server is off or not responding: Try pinging your server to confirm it is on and accessible:

  2. Your server is on, but Teamspeak is not running: Try connecting to your server and Running TeamSpeak

  3. Your server is on, Teamspeak is running, but your firewall is blocking connections: From your server, you can view your iptables rules or you can try to add the default rules needed for TeamSpeak.
