    The ports are open. I also put the rule in windows firewall. If I try to change the ports, back to work for a couple of days, then the problem returns

    Can it be that you host from a machine at your home?
    And maybe the Router restarts and uses a new IP, while the Matchmaker uses the old one?
    I'm not sure if that can be the reason, i've never hosted from my own PC.

    I don't know how the Matchmaker works exactly, but i never experienced that a Server disappeared from the Matchmaker, as long as the Server didn't crash or similar or the Matchmaker itself has had Problems.

    Are you sure that your Dedicated Server (not the rFactor 2 Dedi) is online 365 Days/Year and 24 Hours/Day?
    Is it maybe a shared Dedicated Server?

    Yes, my dedicated server is "dedicated" and active 24/7

    By any chance, the vmod file was done with the latest (in use) version of rF2?

    Solved. Put the IP of dedicated server in "Bind IP" in multiplayer.JSON
