    Hi guys,

    after updating the server using the following command:

    steamcmd +login anonymous +force_install_dir ../rFactor2-Dedicated +app_update 400300 +quit

    I'm no longer able to start it, because of the following error:

    I don't have a multiplayer.ini file, but in my multiplayer.json file I have the following ports configured:

    "HTTP Server Port":64297,
    "Simulation Port":54297,

    And if I check the ports before running the Dedicated Server I see they're not used:

    Although it's not the problem (because of the message and because the Dedicated Server stops immediatlely), on the router, I still have port forwarding configured as following:

    Before the upgrade (although it may be a coincidence) everything worked fine and the server had been used by a few people from the Internet.

    Any hints on how to troubleshoot this?

    Thanks, jaco

    Try disabling the firewall and the antivirus to check that the problem isn't there

    Did you reboot or check for leftover rF2 processes still running?

    Hi @Lazza, I rebooted a couple of times.

    Thanks, jaco

    PS: on that Windows instance, I have no rFactor2 (client installation). I installed just SteamCMD and the Dedicated Server.

    Hi all, just for information, I removed the dedicated-server and resintalled it from scratch, repeated the unlock procedure and it now works as before.
