Problems starting rust with easy anti cheat

This problem just started happening today. I was on the servers fine last night. It pops up saying that I cannot connect to the easy anti cheat servers. “Rust Launcher Error: Network Error - Could not connect to the easy anti-cheat network.”

I’ve restarted steam and still nothing.


We have found and fixed a HTTP connection problem if the user is behind a proxy / some kind of man-in-middle that switches the HTTP version from 1.1 to 1.0. While this is still in our internal build, could you test if these files fix it for you as well?

First remove the existing Steam\SteamApps\Common\Rust\EasyAntiCheat\EasyAntiCheat_x86.dll and EasyAntiCheat_x64.dll.
Then copy in the same folder new files from here:

Rejecting client (********/): Steam Auth Timeout

Can’t even connect to my servers lol! will try ur solution.


I fixed it. Just needed to restart my computer. Lol should have tried that before posting.
