    If you are forwarding ports on a Wi Fi router, bypass it and connect direct to the internet router/modem

    I'm sure you already done this, but turn off windows firewall or antivirus firewall.

    I know this is going to sound a bit nuts, but this error has popped up a few times on my windows 2012 dedicated server. All I had to do was reboot and the error cleared. It's almost as if the port gets hung open or something.

    Why would I have to do this?! Why 860??? It has worked flawlessly for 20 months...

    1... 2... 3... 4... 5... 6... 7... 8... 9... 10... calm the eff down :p

    Unless ISI has build in a nice little tool to let you know that your ports in the router isn't forwarded properly - and the ports have changed from 798 to 860... then it should NOT be the problem... Because I was hosting away in 798 (and countless previous builds)...

    I told you because I used to host lot of races on my desktop PC and I had to do that to be able to host. You were connected on my server of F1 92 right?

    Bjorn stay cool :) there was so much testing before the release. Did you try a restart because the port issue theory could be a or the reason.

    EDIT:
    For the search function: Ensure ports set in multiplayer.ini are available - errormessage.
    Fix, restart the hosting machine

    Wow, thanks man! It worked...

    Well that is to be written down for the future...

    Sorry for the frustrated tone...

    What a strange bug :)

    Thanks from all the paying customers to ridicule their license, just so auto updating is even for the guys who dont pay for it, quite the contrary what you told your paying customersin in the first place!
    Nice!

    So what advanced functions and benfits has a loyal,paying customer now?
    Im really curious!

    Track IR not working properly in this build 64bit for me. Degree of head movement in track IR UI not the same as in game. I have 120 deg left and 120 deg right movement in Track IR so that it will fit to the width of movement I need to look from left edge of my screen to the right. But in game I less than 45 deg left or 45 deg right. Increasing the amount of rotation in Track IR did not give me any more rotation in the game.

    Works fine here in 64bit. It shouldn't need to be moved anywhere.

    It's telling you the default ports aren't open to network traffic.

    I assume you mean those on lifetime, when you're describing loyal and paying? Because standard users aren't? Bypassing that, the answer would be that lifetime has exactly the same functions and benefits. Or did you mean to ask about standard benefits and functions? It was hard to see the question through the wall of curiosity. :)

    Should the file "TrackIR_rF2_Plugin_x64.dll" (dated 9/19/2014, 89 kb) be in the plugins folder? It is the same file as in the bin64/plugins folder.

    I don't know nor really care what you did, but my Evie, she drives better.

    My perspective F3 Historic was good enough to go gold from build . (dot) and it just got a tiny bit better.


    Anyways WD :cool:


    P.S. Fresh lite install in a empty folder, as always went as expected.
