|To clarify first: DE/IDE can be used here.
Is the following being received when you attempt to connect to a public server?
"No authentication data. Please use ZLauncher or IDE while logged into ZDaemon"
If yes, you'll need to make sure that the following is done:
1) Make sure that you're logged into the "ZD Scoreboard"
2) Make sure the following is disabled in Options -> Launch Game:
[ ] Skip ZDaemon Authentication
3) Untick the ZDaemon option under "Player name and color", and make sure +name isn't defined in the "Additional command-line parameters" field.
Once all of the above has been verified, you should be able to connect without a problem.
If you still end up receiving the same message regardless, it is strongly recommended that the ZLauncher is used instead.
