|0000154||Soldat Dedicated Server||General||public||2012-02-08 23:26||2012-02-13 01:44|
|Target Version||Fixed in Version||2.7.3|
|Summary||0000154: Forcefully closing connection to admin server results in malfunction of admin server|
|Description||I've stumbled upon this issue quite a few times now while working on MSAC and a gather bot for #lrs, turns out it does not happen randomly:|
If an admin connection to the Soldat dedicated server is forcefully closed, new admin clients do not receive any more data after authenticating.
The "Sever version: 2.7.2" line is the last line that is received.
If there are players on the server, it sometimes randomly crashes a few minutes after the connection broke.
|Steps To Reproduce||Due to how Windows internally handles sockets of programs which quit without cleaning up a socket handle, this can easily be reproduced on Windows using nc.|
It can be reproduced on *nix by remotely connecting (not through loop-back) with an admin client and kill -9'ing its process (random).
1) Get nc for Windows: http://joncraton.org/blog/46/netcat-for-windows [^]
2) Start the Soldat dedicated server
3) nc localhost 23073
4) Enter the admin password, hit return, execute any command.
-> You will get a correct response (echo of your command).
5) Terminate nc by pressing ctrl-c (note that no 'Admin disconnected' message is displayed in the dedicated server's console)
6) Wait a few seconds, then repeat 3) and 4)
-> The command will be displayed in the dedicated server's console (and will be processed by scripts), the admin client will however not receive any response.
|Additional Information||I assume that this is caused by incorrectly handling send(), recv() or select() returning -1, or not checking the error fd after calling select().|
|Tags||No tags attached.|
I did the steps 1..6 but I don't get this error on Windows XP.
I the server never displays the 'Admin disconnected' message when I disconnect (ctrl+c'd nc).
New connections receive join messages and sent messages so theres no bug for me.
As I don't have access to a Windows 7 machine now I can't test it.
Any other ideas on how to get this error?
That is odd, I am able to reproduce it on a so far untouched and independently set up XP VM (fully patched, SP3) too.
The issue is not related to the scripts running on the server, I have also tested it with Scripting=0 in server.ini.
I also joined the server like you suggested (after taking the screenshots), the admin client did not get the join messages either.
Here's the server's configuration file I used for reproducing this issue, it is basing on the default one shipped with the 1.6.2 server, only the server name, lobby registration options and port have been changed:
|I tested this with a freshly set up Soldat server (from soldatserver2.7.2_1.6.2.zip md5 70d30d7b7138c450786e7337299bc930, I only set an admin password in soldat.ini) on Windows 7 now and was able to reproduct the bug using the steps above (as shown on the screenshot on the previous note).|
|Wrong handling of exceptions was probably the reason for this error (finally -> except).|
