Summary 0007566: DNS Caching in Mono
Revision 2015-05-13 11:16 by nebadon
Description There seems to be some issues with people who run simulators on DHCP connections who use FQDN. If you teleport to or from one of those regions, the region IP address is cached on the other end (not the DHCP region) and when the DHCP region IP address eventually changes, Robust and other regions keep the old IP address cached in memory eternally and you can not log directly in or teleport from any region you had visited previously using old IP address, only when the robust service and other regions are restarted can this region be reached again. It does appear though that you can teleport from a region that has never been visited from this region and once you do this it does some how update will robust and direct log in becomes available again until the next IP change. There was some discussion previously on this topic noted below :
