List of MUDs that can be connected to "Securely"

Post by SlySven »

I think it would be useful to record here the connection details for MUDs where the "Secure" option (to use SSL/TLS) to connect over an encrypted link to the Server as opposed to the plain-text standard Telnet one, can be used. I would like to collate them in this first post so any replies with the:
  • Mud name
  • Language used (I will assume English {American} en_US unless told otherwise)
  • Port number(s) for Secure connections
  • Alternative Port number(s) for plain Telnet connections (if provided)
would be gratefully received and added in.

Code: Select all

From MudList means sourced from the data at: ... dlist.html and possibly visits to their web-site.

Avalon is included but it currently (as of 4.8.2) is set for the open connection on port 23 - this may change now I am aware of it.

M*U*S*H is the reference implementation of the PennMUSH Server.

Shadowgate recommends Mudlet as a cross-platform MUD Client. :)

ChatMUD only had a skeletal website so it was difficult to establish if it was an operable MU*.

The inclusion of a MU* here is only an indication that they appear to offer a means to connect to them via an encrypted link - the game concerned may not even be in a playable state or even running!

The only 2 I've tried are my own, I've been logging into them securely with Mudlet for a few months:

The Eternal Fantasy, 3334 TLS
TimMUD, 5556 TLS

Grapevine has some but you have to look at the profile page for each game to find them, so there's probably more, but I found:

ChatMUD,, 7443
MidMUD,, 5443

This MSSP crawler data page shows a bunch listing SSL in their MSSP data. I haven't tested any.
It has about 20, some in the SSL variable in MSSP and a few mention SSL in the login screen. ... dlist.html
