Kali Port Change

The Kali Website has word that the Kali tracker has moved to a non-standard port, and users of this old-school server tracker should configure it to look for "tracker.kali.net:2213." You hear so little about Kali these days that one would suspect this is an April Fools' joke, but the post is actually from a few weeks ago. Thanks Ant.

Back then you needed Kali to play a lot of games online, it was more then just a server browser. It was a software bridge really, and matchmaker.

Most games only supported the Novell Netware IPX/SPX protocol for LAN play, as that's what most LANs used at the time. There was no 'Internet' or TCP/IP options. Kali would route the IPX/SPX protocol over TCP/IP so you could play across the Internet.

Kali was quite a gem until games started directly supporting TCP/IP.
You are 100% correct.
