Hi there,
We have a couple of new users who every time they connect to our ETPro server (v3.2.6) they get kicked for excess flooding, this happens whether flood protection is on or off Sad anyone got any ideas Question

Cheers.

The cvars that control this are described here: http://bani.anime.net/banimod/forums/viewtopic.php?t=6587 and also in the server example.cfg

Chances are, these users have a lot of echo commands in their autoexec_*.cfg files, or something like that. (echos aren't normally sent to the server, but they are during part of the connection process.)

I suggest that getting the users to fix their configs is better than changing the settings on the server, as this prevents some unpleasant things.

If you can't figure out what is wrong, get the server log from when they try to connect and post it here.

Perhaps the server admin changed the the default values ?


I guess b_floodMaxCommands is the cvar to be checked (?). '/pb_cvarval b_floodMaxCommands' on that server says '3' now, but I didn't check this when the server got crashed 4 weeks ago. Sad

b_floodMaxCommands is spam limiting. From the server example.cfg:
Code:

// b_floodMaxCommands <n> - chat flood protection -- approximately n rate-limited
// commands are allowed per 30 seconds, 0 disables.
// see b_floodKick* for lag exploit protection
// default: 6
set b_floodMaxCommands 6

The following cvars deal with flooding of ALL commands
Code:

// the following three cvars provide flood protection for all commands and
// userinfo changes, used prevent lag and client disconnect exploits
// see b_floodMaxCommands for chat spam protection

// b_floodKickRate - continuous commands/sec allowed
// default 15   valid values >= 10
// if a client sends more, it is counted against burst below
set b_floodKickRate 15

// b_floodKickBurst - max commands in a burst
// Clients get warnings if they come within 4/5ths of the limit
// default 20   valid values >= 10
set b_floodKickBurst 20

// b_floodKickTime - time in seconds to kick users who exceed flood limit.
// 0 means the player is allowed to re-join immediately.
// default 0   valid values >= 0
set b_floodKickTime 0
