New network for GRAW server
« on: February 06, 2018, 11:18:01 AM »
Hooked me up today - still using dual ISPs for a month in case they aren't rock solid. However, the numbers are good - see attachment

Don't eat food off the sidewalk, no matter how good it looks.

another screenshot of peak up (blue) and down (orange) speed on my router's monitor tab. Fast and solid ramp up to over 60 times the speeds we used to have. Any lag in the game from now will be a downstream issue, or CPU on the game server. In fact, the server may not even have a gigabit card. Have to check.

and with all that speed comes the risk of getting hacked... (hackers can do massive damage from a fast network).

I was going to do this router security review this weekend, but while reading some of the pointers, I bet others here can learn a little from this article - make your network safer, so my Hamachi connection to you doesn't get me owned one of these days :)

Interesting article. Did a quick skim.
I'm going to give that a read tonight when I have some time.
I do what I can.

If a man, standing in the forest says something, and his wife isn't there to correct him, is he still wrong??
