Crysis Wars Server Crashes Always

Post by TE5LA » Sat Mar 15, 2014 2:21 pm

I have an un-managed 2-core server. There is nothing unusual about my server setup. Windows Firewall is completely off. I am running only stock maps. The server starts and usually within minutes, the command console fills with some random character and shifts every three seconds with another character. At that time, the CPU usage will jump from what is typically 0-2% up to 40-80% or higher. The console is not usable after this and the server often crashes not long afterward. This is with no players on the server.

You can see it here:

I have tried with and without PunkBuster, with "protection" set to "0", "1", "2", "3", compatibility modes set to Windows XP Service Pack 2 and 3, running as Administrator, running 64-bit and 32-bit, etc. Nothing seems to be working.

I recommend running wireshark and looking for suspicious traffic. From your description, it is possible that you are being attacked.
