Several Errors in Console

(1/1)

DCaptainFunk:
Hello!

I started hosting a server a few days ago - and everything seems ok - players can join the server and fly without problems, but I see these errors or entries in the console and not sure what they mean - and if there is anything I need to do to resolve these:

LOG ENTRY #1 (not sure what this means):
150104 09:12:16  Remote Access error: socket closed before receiving full data. IP=<ip address - not the servers IP>
150104 09:12:36  Remote Access error 10054 receiving data. IP=<same ip address as in previous line>

LOG ENTRY #2 (I assume this is just a log that someone is checking the server via browser?):
150104 09:24:35  Remote Access: IP=<ip address - not the servers IP>, GET, path=/xml

LOG ENTRY #3 (not sure what this means):
150104 10:59:31  Remote Access error: socket closed before receiving full data. IP=<server ip address>
150104 10:59:31  Remote Access error: socket closed before receiving full data. IP=<server ip address>

Thank you in advance ;)

Hi,

These are all related to someone connecting to your FSHost over an HTTP connection. They could be using a browser, or they could be using FSHostSpy to find a server to connect to.

The error "socket closed before receiving full data" means that someone connected to your FSHost but then didn't send a request for a page. The error "10054" is similar. This normally isn't something to worry about unless you were just getting bombarded with a million hits from one IP. Random connections from around the internet are fairly common these days.

The log entry #2, where it says, "path=/xml" is most likely someone using FSHostSpy and seeing your server in the list of available servers to connect to. FSHostSpy uses that "/xml" path to get each server's data. If a player then clicks the "FSHost Page" button in FSHostSpy, their browser will be sent to your FSHost server to request the main page.

In short, nothing to worry about. :)

Thanks,
Russell
