Is there any way aa 2.5 server can be reliably used in multihomed host?

In particular, can I influence, what address is given to the auth/master server?

Also, I see UdpTerminate and UdpRestart messages in the server console - what do they mean?

Netstat shows that:
  UDP    0.0.0.0:1716           *:*    [aasrv001.exe]
  UDP    0.0.0.0:1717           *:*    [aaudp001.exe]
  UDP    0.0.0.0:1718           *:*    [aasrv001.exe]
Is it possible to force aaudp001.exe to bind to specific address instead of 'any'?

When I start original 2.5 server.exe with option 'multihome=85.14.85.18', and put IP=85.14.85.18 in server.ini section, i get following situation:

UDP    85.14.85.18:1716       *:*
UDP    85.14.85.18:1717       *:*

Now, I'd like to achieve this in 'assist' setup. How can I do it, and if not, can you help with this?

it would require some extensive modification to my system. and i don't really want to do it. For one thing I don't get paid for it and no one makes any donations. and thus far you are the only person who has requested this feature. everyone else seems to be OK.

So maybe you shall consider opening up the sources? I definitely would be great for community.

Using your time is the last thing I want to do. Give me access to sources and I make a nice patch for you, which you can then review and accept/reject.

hey pit
what about this:
maybe wrong port forwarding with router and nat to your server/workstation?

Yes, the part of the problem may also lie there. Unfortunately i'm noob as far as those issues are concerned, so I'd like to eliminate more obvious problems first.

If the server is supposed to be visible at a particular IP (i.e. e.g. that browser rejects query response sent with different source address than expected), then the 1716-1718 sockets must be bind at that address, not at INADDR_ANY (0.0.0.0). After some googling I see that this is typical solution to this problem with other UDP servers (e.g. TFTP).

Also, AA 2.8 and 3.0 worked in this server for years without problems, and the first difference is that they _do_ bind at particular address, not 0.0.0.0. Therefore I assume, that changing binding will most probably solve the problem.

Thanks again, I'll take a look at this.

Now I have just one more request: can you give some links to any existing descriptions of e.g. protocols, that can be helpful in understanding those sources?

There are none, it was all done by reverse engineeing using packet sniffers and such.

Looked at log file, all is OK. I don't know why its not working.
Make sure there is nothing else running on the server using the same ports.
Try using different ports like 1816,1817

There are many threads on this forum about this issue to help you.

I had a similar problem after I forwarded port 1718 it worked so I guess you use 1818.

Your input to the topic is very valuable. Same as in the 'honor server + why AA2.5' thread.

Johnny, can you upload latest sources to sourceforge? The currently present ones seem to not match the latest binaries.
