Default Ive done the steps, still cant log in

So i
1. Installed game Titanium
2. Changed the host file to the 5998
3. I made a shortcut to everquest and added "patchme" at the end. I did a space after the " and added patchme
4. I have a eqemulator account and a login account.

I used to play devnoobs server until 2014. Ive done this all before.

What am i mising? I go to log in a it waits, and then says cannot connect to server, check your internet connection blah blah blah. Maybe its doing this on purpose so i cant play this addictive stuff anymore.
Thanks

If you're attempting to log into a specific server, make sure that they support the Titanium client.

Server admins are free deviate from the supported clients standard.

I believe PEQ still supports the titanium client and requires no special 'mods' downloads..would be a good place to check.

IM just trying to get into the server area that lists all the servers to pick from

Ive done the game install and done these two

Step 4 - EQHost File
In order for your client to connect to the EQEmulator Login Server (and not SOE's EQLive Login Server), you will need to change your eqhost.txt file to point at the correct location. Go into your EverQuest directory and locate the eqhost.txt file. Replace the contents of the file with the following (Remove any trailing spaces):
Tit | SoF
[LoginServer]
Host=login.eqemulator.net:5998


Step 5 - Creating Shortcut
Now, you will need to create a shortcut to launch EverQuest and bypass the EQLive patcher (if this step is not taken, you will launch the patcher and overwrite the EQHost.txt file that you just modified, making you connect to the global EQLive Login Server). To do this, go into your EverQuest directory. Locate the EQGAME.EXE file. Right-click on the file and select "Create Shortcut." You can rename this shortcut and drag it anywhere you'd like (most people like to put it on their desktop). Now, right-click that shortcut and select Properties. In the target box, you will see the path to the eqgame.exe file. We need to edit this so that it will pass an argument to that executable when the shortcut is launched. At the end of the text box (after any parentheses), add "patchme" (no quotes). Your target box should look similar to this:
"C:\Program Files\Everquest\eqgame.exe" patchme


and still doesnt work. hmm

Since you're in a 'protected' directory, you may need to elevate the execution to admin..most people just drop it in their root directory since windows is notorious for privilege issues.

The only other things I can think of would be a firewall issue, ISP blocking or a port hijacking (something else using it) on your computer.

As long as you edited your eqhost file to

Code:
[LoginServer]
Host=login.eqemulator.net:5998
And you haven't made any changes to your windows host file it should at least connect to the login server. Sure you haven't patched the game in anyway right?
