Hi again everyone :D

I need some help with some "techno info" on the server side.

While checking my logs, I saw this line on the report,

"Player [0] sent huge packet length (len=12301), possible attack from 130.237.201.140"

I saw this line in a few spots. I also notice that at times my SMC router is resetting itself causing the server to lose its connection for about 1 minute. Can this be the cause of this, or is it time for a new router? :?

Thanks for any help on this.

I've had this happen before as well. Not sure why though. I just added the IP to my banlist. What ever was doing it, it connected 4 times in a row.

Code: Select all

Player [0] sent huge packet length (len=17231), possible attack from 128.193.0.28
Player  [0] on 6 removed: large packet recvd
Player [0] accept() from 128.193.0.28:45666 on 6
Player [0] sent huge packet length (len=20559), possible attack from 128.193.0.28
Player  [0] on 6 removed: large packet recvd
Player [0] accept() from 128.193.0.28:46573 on 6

Thanks for that info Blast :D

By the way, I had to replace my router........it died!

I thought these huge packets where causing me to lose the connection, but I was wrong.

Take care all :D
