Re: What is going on with installing HLDS for 1.6!

You would need to use +ip x and put everything on one line instead of two. Are you seeing it as listed on the master server at http://api.steampowered.com/ISteamApps/GetServersAtAddress/v0001?addr=x (where "x" is the IP)? What do you see from the output of "status"? As far as I know, our own managed...

Re: Squad host

Yes, not sure what's going on there, but they were claiming to our customers that Xeons weren't as fast as i7 machines (which is complete bunk), and not allowing servers to be licensed. We offered them for awhile anyway, but customers were just getting confused and annoyed too often.

Re: Xbox One X Connecting to VDS - Can’t Connect to Static IP

Posting in the forum is the right thing to do. This where customers can ask other customers for software assistance. We don't offer software assistance for unmanaged services directly through our support request system. It sounds as though you wish to use a VDS as a VPN and configure your Xbox One X...

Re: Wine Ubuntu 19.01 nodrv_CreateWindow

For compatibility and long-term maintainability reasons, I generally recommend running the latest LTS version with Ubuntu. I don't know if that's a factor here, though. Do you have an x windows subsystem installed? Your errors suggest that what you are running, or the way that you are running it, re...

Re: Dedicated Servers - Unmetered Traffic

We don't currently have a program for that, but our machines include such a large amount of traffic that it's very hard to reach it. You'd likely have to be doing at least a few hundred megabits per second constantly to reach the allotted amount on an E-2186G, for instance. We have seen several clie...

Re: Fix Killing Floor 2 Server High I/O, Hard Drive usage custom maps

The beta gets rid of most of the extra reads. The game mostly (or exclusively) does them when it starts up now, instead of doing them near-constantly.

Interesting! The beta also mostly fixes this, but possibly the two could be combined for the best results. Did you notice any side effects?

Re: Large Red FX Letters

This isn't a game that we support in our managed system, so I'll move this post to the dedicated servers forum. We're also familiar with running servers for this game and I did not know that the files were available for it. If you have privately-distributed files, have you tried connecting with your...

Re: PHP FTP access on Managed VDS

Nope, we don't set pasv_min_port or pasv_max_port for gameserver vsftpd installations. This means that by default it will "use any port". And, all ports are let through the firewall on our end. Since the game server VDS is multihomed, the explanation that you found of the FTP server returning an une...

Re: PHP FTP access on Managed VDS

We don't use a NAT, proxy, or stateful firewall on game hosting machines and the FTP traffic is let right on through, completely unmolested, across all port ranges, so there aren't any firewall settings to twiddle on that side. I hope the setting change works for you. If it does, it sounds like you ...

Re: PHP FTP access on Managed VDS

We aren't using any sort of proxying setup on our end, no. FTP connections go straight through to the actual machine. If you're running your PHP queries though a NAT or have an unusual firewall configuration, though, those might be factors. Some sources suggest that this error can occur if the serve...

Re: Backup script stopped being able to write to my VDS

Difficult to say from here since we don't appear to control the software on either end of what you're doing, but since it started after you updated the system, you might try rolling back some of the updates. Having a connection refused error on a passive port like this would suggest that vsftpd is n...

What about NVMe?

NVMe is a faster interface between SSD storage and the processor/memory. An SSD running on the fastest SATA interface will top out at a random write rate of around 500 MB/s, while a similar drive, from the same manufacturer and running on an NVMe interface, might write at 2,500 MB/s. Since both type...

How do server-grade CPUs compare to consumer-grade ones?

We use Xeon E-series CPUs here at NFO instead of the consumer-side chip equivalents for a few reasons: - They use ECC memory, which is important for preventing crashes (both application and OS crashes). Random bit flips in non-ECC memory are suprisingly common -- Google found that 8% of DIMMs were a...
