Just like the title says. I am having seemingly random server crashes and every player is being individually disconnected from time to time. I am not certain if the two problems are related or not. Two players have their ports forwarded and one of them does not. both of these issues started about a week ago. Before that, it was very rare for any of my servers to crash or have any sort of problem. I am running a 3 server cluster on a dedicated machine, but most of the time only 1-2 servers are actually up and running.
Specs: i5-4670K 32 GB Ram OS and servers on separate SSDs.
I included the support zip in case that helps. any suggestions or stability tips would be very much appriciated.
To Update: I have put the server in a DMZ on the router. I have disabled the windows firewall on the server machine. And I have reset the managed switch to default settings and the disconnect issue still persists. This issue has far surpassed the server crashing issue. I have one client that is currently unable to connect for more than 15 minutes at a time. the most frustrating thing about this issue is that it did not start until last week. I am not aware of any significant changes that have been made. Networking is not my strong suite but I follow directions well. If you have an idea I would be interested in hearing it.
The troublesome server is a Lost Island server using ports 7770 and 27013. If there are conflicts with these ports I am not aware of any. I suppose I could try changing the ports to the default ports and see what happens.
