    Hi everyone. Well yesterday we made a major change in the firewall configuration. That was at around 6.00am CST yesterday (Tuesday). Since then I have been monitoring the software and it seems that things are certainly better BUT I am still talking to players with problems. I would like to determine the extent of the success (if in deed there is any) and will make another poll here. I will not consider anything a success until we have seen better stability for at least 5-7 days. All I can say at the moment is that at this time the last 24 hours seem to have been better than before. It really helps me if lots of you take the time to answer the above poll.

    Whatever changes were made have helped dramatically with the "Connection to Server Lost. Shutting Down." message I was seeing 10+ times a game. However, I am still getting frequent Javascript timeouts when updating the lobby, as well as tablle freezeups for 10-15 seconds, which has cost me a hand or two. Their frequency is dramatically lower, though, so THANK YOU.

      hi mark

        I can't believe only two players have said they time out regularly. If you time out on a regular basis please post it. Otherwise Mark might get the idea things are much better. They are not.

        Thank you,

          I can tell you that the above numbers are as I expected. I know that the changes we made on Tuesday so far have made a dramatic difference to many but not all players. I can see that in our logs. Basically the logs are now back to where they were in terms of disconnects and timeouts before our move.

          Having said that I am not taking anything for granted. I will not consider this as "fixed" until we get over the weekend without an increase in timeouts/disconnects. Now because of these problems since the move it is understandable that anyone still experiencing problems will naturally assume the big isue is still unresolved.

          In the meantime I am happy to work with anyone that is still experiencing problems.

            I can say since Tuesday morning I have only timed out once,but I do have some lag here and there. I have not disconnected since then but alot of tables I have played someone has had a disconnect problem. I know at about 8:30 pm in a single sat apryllshowers was still having problems.....

              I played yesterday at the 1pm PLO8 tournament (for the first time in two weeks, I might add). Not only did I have no connection problems, but the lobby and the tables seemed to run smoother than I was accustomed to.

              I was so happy, I stuck around and finished third.

                  I have not played much at all since the problems started but I did play a few sats yesterday and was still having timeout problems. Not nearly as bad as last week, but still much worse than before the change. I wll try a multi or two and will post if I continue to have problems.

                    I haven't played at all for a few weeks as I invariably get timeout errors when entering the lobby and presume this is a bad sign. Ditto this morning when I was aiming to play a sat or 2 (about 6 a.m. CST). New tracert below, still seems to be bouncing slowly around the way it was before :

                      Until Friday. I was disconnected at least 10-12 times over the course of 2 tourneys this morning.
