MoFo server thinks I'm using a VPN

Post by XndrK » Tue Jun 26, 2018 4:35 am

The Apocalypse Ate-Teen server keeps kicking me, thinking I'm using a VPN even though I'm not and can't think of any software that would allow anyone else to use my IP address as one. This is, needless to say, mildly frustrating. (This may be related: my login keeps getting rejected as a "bad token".)

I'm using the Fedora repository version of BZFlag 2.4.14 on Fedora 28.

Thanks.

Does this only happen when you try to join MoFo?
Have you checked to make sure your callsign and password are up to date?(Maybe you changed your password?)
Did this start when you got rejected as 'bad token'? (If it did, it might be nothing more than an authentication issue.)
Did you get a specific message which says you are getting kicked for using a VPN?

XndrK, your computer (or the NAT box it is behind) may have multiple IP addresses and due to Internet routing differences it may use one IP address when contacting the BZFlag list server and another IP address when connecting to MoFo. If so, there isn't anything you can do to fix it other than to play from somewhere else where you have only one IP address. A server plugin exists to help specific players with this problem, but I don't know if MoFo would use that.

Looking at the list server logs, the couple times I saw you have issues this month was when your client didn't send a token at all, meaning you weren't getting authenticated correctly (or at all).
