I'm at my wits end here.
Perhaps someone can relate? or provide a possible solution?
Windows 2003 Server
OFP Dedicated server (1.96)
2 Nics (One routed for external clients - One for LAN and VPN clients)
Also running Teamspeak
One external client, one VPN client, and one LAN client (me)
Sometime during play.. could be 10mins, could be 2hours suddenly all external clients AND VPN clients get yellow square... suddenly massive traffic on my router and cable modem. OFP and Teamspeak ceases to function for them until I disable my LAN client or the server (i.e. shutdown OFP). Traffic returns to idle and TS auto-reconnects them (usually to them saying "What the hell just happened?" even though this has been happening for months )
During this crisis my LAN client is talking to the server just fine.
I've reinstalled OFP on every machine. I've changed routing configurations. I've disabled Dos and SPI on my router. I've forwarded all OFP ports to my LAN machine just in case any packets coming in via my router from WAN side are hitting both NICs on my server.
Note, I've also played with one person each (once with VPN client and once with regular external client) and still had the issue pop up.
Never had this problem until I upgraded my server and added two NICs and a switch. I've run both Windows XP and Windows server OSs on it since and disabled one NIC and still see the problem regularily.
Only happens with OFP. More frequent the more people that are playing.
It is driving me insane.
I did search and came across this: last post sounds very familiar... http://www.flashpoint1985.com/cgi-bi...;hl=disconnect
