I’ve been playing Rust (experimental) now for about 1,5 month, never had any real problems until 2 weeks ago when all of the sudden I couldn’t stay connected to any server anymore.
Just came back from vacation and after updating I tried again, but still the same problem. About 20 sec after logging in: Connection timed out. Same thing every server I try. In the console there are no messages. Only thing I found was in the networking section of the console; after joining a server the receiving and sending bytes come and go without problems. But after about 5-10 sec the sending just stops, it freezes completely. Still incoming bytes keep coming and then the disconnect comes after another 10-15 sec.
What I’ve tried so far:
- Run as administrator
- Verify game cache
- Disable windows firewall
- Open all required (Steam) ports in router
Any help much appreciated.
Old Rust works fine by the way
After the update of March 5th the problem changed. No more disconnect but instead immediatly after joining a server: 100% packet loss. 0 packets being sent, only received.
Now with the latest patch (April 9) same as before (100% packet loss 2 sec after joining any server), but after a while Disconnected: Unresponsive
With connection via a VPN there are no problems.
-disable router firewall
-router factory reset
