[WINDOWS] Starting a second server instance failed

Postby Niteruner » Tue Apr 28, 2015 8:57 am

When starting a second instance of the dedicated server, I am getting the following error;


37.120.xxx.xxx (IP Adress redacted)

Starting dedicated server.
Initializing server...
(Filename: C:/buildslave/unity/build/artifacts/generated/common/runtime/UnityEngineDebug.gen.cpp Line: 56)
SocketException: Only one usage of each socket address (protocol/network address/port) is normally permitted.

The client and server Ports differ from the first instance, I also tried it with defferent users.

It seems, that the server only checks the IP, not the port, so only one instance is possible with the same IP.

should be fixed now if
usingMultipleServerInstances is set to True in serverSettings.txt
