I have restarted the server, open, with a loop that goes through the nuke plant missions. I'll change it up every couple days or when it's empty if I get a chance.
I think the final verdict on the pw was no password unless we have a scheduled event. As for what days I'm home to host- late April I'm home 21-22 weekend- and two weekends before that and two weekends after. I work 7 in 7 out but I'm sure we will have the automated server sorted out by then. Or at least remote stuff.
I'm home early this tour (Monday) do should be good to work on some stuff.
Also talked to the ISP about hard connections on both comps- short version is it ain't happening. Now- of I were to get another router / access point to plug into I could do that but as far as hard line from the wall it's a no go.
Eno, Maybe a few minutes before you restarted your server I got back from dinner. I'd had Road Kill running and by the time I got back the Blue A-10s had not killed the convoys so I got to see the base get captured and the 15 minute reload count down start.
An A-10C pilot showed up so I went ahead and restarted my server with Nuke Plant and left the pilot in that mission. Currently my two missions reload the other (I'm going to change that tonight to reload the same mission - I don't mind you changing the file pointers for your hosting).
So I looked this morning and my server had crashed completely out of the session such that the logon screen was displayed. I have no idea how far into Nuke Plant it got, or if it reloaded Road Kill.
Looking forward to some flight time after work tonight!
The April 20-22 (Fri-Sun) works for me. Lets firm that up (make sure the GF allows it and I'll get permission from the lovely lady here - just talked to her, good to go). We need to post an announcement here and in the Black Shark forum. We also need to test Moa's Rampant Bear on your server, Eno. And I'll complete another mission.
My server crashed hard on Nuke Plant while I was at work today - black screen with just the point of the mouse cursor sticking up from the bottom of the screen.
I do see Eno's server on-line now, but I have to go to the History tab to see it - it is not visible under the Internet tab. Eno has the same mission - Nuke Plant - at 21+ hours - so that is a good thing.
I'm restarting my server and - Ice and I are going to see about a 1 hour to Win attempt.

Anyone get on my server at all for test drives of performance?
I did a speed test on it (the gf did actually) and the numbers were less than amazing- pulling in only 1 more Gb/s than it was with the last plan I had. I'm going to keep on that... We'll see.
But it would be nice to get some feedback from people on how it's holding up- the reason I'm running it all the time is for people to use it. Granted, it'd be nice to play some different missions and I can get them switched daily if that's what "the people" want.
On an additional note I've had a schedule change at work and won't be home until Wednesday now... Sigh.
Eno - I can see your server under the History drop down. Nuke Plant was running at 23+ hours last I checked.
We used my server tonight and had a great time with what 6 or 7 players in at a point. That Road Kill mission really taxes the frame rate when the Red forces surround Sochi - so we are looking forward to seeing how this mission will perform on ENO's server and connection.
Got to say my lowly DSL connection did well even on Friday Night for holding the connections but eventually three of us got booted at the same time, while the server stayed up - that to me is a Internet issue except that *ME-my Client* is in the same room as the server and sees it via LAN with a ping of 6-8 and it lost the sim. I have the DCS Server speed in Options set to 512.
--- It's about an hour after I left this mission and my server is still going, with Einstein in his Red Ka-50 and another Blue A-10C pilot battling over the Sochi base. ---
We're getting there.
We did have 5 SimHQ members in the sim and on TS tonight. A few others came into the server and at least one asked what TS we used.
