VRC disconnection

This error came up today. When I log on as anything other than OBS (CTR/SUP/APP), VRC will log in but not show any traffic and then log off after 10 secs. When logging in as OBS everything works fine.

 

Any ideas?

So I changed the POF file to an older version and it worked for a little while but then it is again back to the same behavior.

No other messages from VRC when it disconnects?

 

Did you try using the World sector and connecting somewhere other than where you were initially (I [Mod - Happy Thoughts]ume you were using the ZLA sector file)? I've seen something somewhat similar once before... some pilot's client was spitting out something that caused VRC to either crash or disconnect (I can't remember which) without any indication as to what the problem was. I only discerned the likely culprit by limiting vispoints/ranges and gradually increasing them.

It's possible, but it causes mixed results with some (all?) pilot clients... e.g. you either won't appear in the in-range ATC list at all or your radio range is severely diminished such that you quickly drop out of that list once they travel away from your vispoint(s).

 

I think the server-side enforcement on things like editing flight plans and starting tracks must look at your callsign suffix, but there's also some logic in pilot clients that can differentiate between an observer vs. an actual controller?

I believe it works off your facility type?

 

 

That is correct. And now I tested the internet connection from my laptop and the laptop VRC works as normal so the internet service provider is also not the problem.

 

So the problem in summary is,

 

I log on as LAX_CTR with the facility type Center (or Approach or Tower) and it connects with no traffic on scope for 10secs and disconnects.

I log on as LAX_CTR with facility type Observer and it connects normally and I can actually control.

I log on as SA_OBS in any facility type and it connects normally.
