In this forum you can write about anything that does not fit in other forums.
This includes generic Oric talkings and things that are totaly unrelated but want to share with people here :)

I restarted the server - hopefully that will help -
(There are a few updates to install, I'll do that tomorrow morning.)

Seems better now.

I don't have to click 3~5 times to open a post, but when clicked, takes longer to open.

Sorry -- it's back to painfully wading through treacle again -- only 22 guests shown, but timing out all over the place, hard to preview/post or even read threads.

Ok, so we know that it's probably not directly related to the high number of connections, I checked the software and hardware, the SSD is new as well, and when I run SpeedTest on my internet line I get a proper 256/257Mbps, so it's not a speed/bandwidth issue either, so my next candidate is routing errors at my ISP level.

Could you guys try two things:
- First a long ping to defence-force.org to see the average/min/max roundtrip and number of errors/packetloss (on windows you can do ping -t defence-force.org)
- Then run a traceroute/tracert from your machines to defence-force.org to see if there are anything weird, like both when it works fine and when it fails.
