Relay Server won't start...- please help me

Post by THE-R4V3R » 16 Nov 2013, 08:33

Hi guys,

think it is an annoying problem, but i can't get in my head.
I have a gameserver running and configured the dedicated.cfg to join relay servers:
dedi_the-01.txt main extracts:

Code: Select all

<masterserver_account>
		<login>the-01</login>
		<password>yyy</password>
		<validation_key>XXXX</validation_key>
	</masterserver_account>
                 <max_players>32</max_players>
		<password>xxx</password>
		
		<max_spectators>80</max_spectators>
		<password_spectator>xxx</password_spectator>

		<allow_spectator_relays>True</allow_spectator_relays>

		<server_port>2366</server_port>
		<server_p2p_port>3466</server_p2p_port>
		<xmlrpc_port>5016</xmlrpc_port>
		<xmlrpc_allowremote>True</xmlrpc_allowremote>	
The Server is running fine no restrictions.
Now we'll go one to the Relay-Server configuration:
dedi_therelay-01.txt

Code: Select all

 	<masterserver_account>
		<login>therelay-01</login>
		<password>yyy</password>
		<validation_key>XXXXX</validation_key>
	</masterserver_account>

		<max_players></max_players>
		<password></password>
		
		<max_spectators>50</max_spectators>
		<password_spectator></password_spectator>

		<allow_spectator_relays>True</allow_spectator_relays>
		<server_port>2367</server_port>
		<server_p2p_port>3467</server_p2p_port>
		<xmlrpc_port>5017</xmlrpc_port>
		<xmlrpc_allowremote>True</xmlrpc_allowremote>	
it makes no diffenrence if i set a explicit number of players / spectators or leave them empty.
My Relay execution is very easy:

Code: Select all

./ManiaPlanetServer /dedicated_cfg=dedi_the-01.txt /join=the-01 /joinpassword=xxx /game_settings=MatchSettings/the-01.txt
For info: it is not possible to start the relay sever without any partameter of the matchsettings. I've read the wiki article from http://wiki.maniaplanet.com/en/Dedicate ... server_.3F where no matchsettings file was set via paramater. The result was that the server exits even before he tries to authenticate on the gameserver. If i add the paramter i'm getting one step further, but not ready. I use the same matchsettings on game- and relay server.

Now my problem:
GameServer-running
And i try to start the relayserver. It will result with the following Outpout:

Code: Select all

The gameserverlog adds also two lines:

Code: Select all

[2013/11/16 08:06:08] Connection of a new spectator: therelay-01(85.114.132.24:2367)
[2013/11/16 08:06:08] Disconnection of therelay-01(85.114.132.24:2367)
For me it doesn't make any sense. I have compared some settings with the old TMNF relay stuff, but no further surprising discover. Please let me know what's my mistake. The server instantly quits with or without configured join password.
I tried to get some further informations by adding "/verbose_rpc" like on the old TMNF Servers.

    And it gets to be very, very long now. We already missed relays for a lot of great matches and finals on your side at ET. Tonight, we won't be able to use relay servers for the Final of our first cup on Valley, again.
    We only have low quality streams as alternative when it is possible.

    Hi all,

    I can't follow any stream on Twitch, too lagg, and I am not alone in this case.
    I think Nadeo doesn't want any relay server so that streamers have most viewers ... I would agree with that if we had quality streams without lagg , except this is not the case actually...
