Can't load servers or Sweatbox


Recommended Posts

I get the following error when VRC first loads up.

vrc_connect_error_zpshurte0hy.jpg

 

I have disabled the firewall and still get the same error message.

 

I can connect to the USA-E2 server, but the Sweatbox server is not listed, so I don't think it is working right. And yes, I created the myservers.txt file and put it in the root VRC folder. Using Windows 10.

 

Any ideas?

Yes, something is messed up and has been for a while -- no one seems to be able to get the servers list to open anymore.

 

Replace the contents of your servers.txt file with the following:

Not sure why your sweatbox server isn't showing up.

Ross, this has been consistently happening for me on Win7 for at least a couple of weeks as well.

This version should resolve it ... please give it a try:

In case anyone is curious as to the problem, the HTTP client code that was built into VRC since the beginning (provided to me by the author of Squawkbox) was using a newline character to terminate HTTP header lines, and I changed it to carriage return plus line feed, per the HTTP spec, and now it works.

I just released 1.2.5 officially. Those of you that have downloaded it already will need to re-download it from the web site, since the version you have "thinks" it's version 1.2.4, so it'll keep telling you there is a newer version until you download the actual v1.2.5 installer that I just put up:

There is no workaround for the HTTP error ... you can just ignore it. The error just means that the server list download is failing, so if you use a current server list, that's not a problem. If you download the latest 1.2.4 installer which I put up on the site a couple days ago, it will install a current server list.
