    Solved server 3.0.2 : serverquery flooding control broken?!

    Hi,

    at first I tought it might be some issue with my server or its configuration. But after working and experimenting with the server and the config I think it is a bug.

    Summary: After update to 3.0.2 a various range of TS viewing tools get error 524 "client is flooding".

    To me it seems that server version 3.0.2 is either ignoring the "query_ip_whitelist.txt" or the new "virtualserver_antiflood_points_needed_ip_block" or "virtualserver_antiflood_points_needed_command_bloc k" is overruling the settings.

    I have found the following solutions:
    • downgrade to server 3.0.1;
    • in server 3.0.2 massivly raise the value of "virtualserver_antiflood_points_needed_ip_block" and "virtualserver_antiflood_points_needed_command_bloc k";

    If this is intended to be like this, it would have been nice if there was a hint in "ts3_serverquery_manual.pdf". The serverquery manual only states that flooding is controlled by "query_ip_whitelist.txt" and "SERVERINSTANCE_SERVERQUERY_FLOOD_*". Which does not quite work (for my server).

    If you read the changelog it clearly states that it will not ban now. If a clients point are too high the server just ignores any command from them until their points are low again.

    That is okay, but it does not state that serverquery is affected as all. And even if so, "query_ip_whitelist.txt" should overrule this because most viewing tools tend flood commands as they repeat a sequence of serverquery commands every second.

    I was not responding to you, I was responding to dehjvg. His issue is not what you mention and is clearly mentioned in the change log.

    I agree with you that query_ip_whitelist.txt should be respected in the anti-spam system. In my opinion, if the new system is ignoring the white list it is bugged.

    query_ip_whitelist.txt had never something todo with antispam.

    please use the correct perm: permission b_client_ignore_antiflood

    Barungar, I've tested and I too think this is broken in 3.02.

    R.Ludwig, assuming antispam and antiflood are more or less the same thing:

    <trimmed>
    While using query from an IP in the whitelist and getting "error id =524 msg=client\sis\sflooding" seams to be a contradiction to me.

    As I remember this update it was to support webviewers not needing to login or giving the query guest account the permission you mention as that would allow anyone to flood the server.

    I would be grateful if it where so. Nevertheless do all webviewers get an error 524 "client is flooding". All I changed was to update from 3.0.1 to 3.0.2! All webviewers are clearly defined in the query_ip_whitelist.txt ... but they get error 524. The strange thing is, if you raise the values "virtualserver_antiflood_points_needed_ip_bloc k" and "virtualserver_antiflood_points_needed_command_blo c k" they can work.

    So in my opinion there is a bug in server 3.0.2 because query_ip_whitelist.txt seems to have no consequence anymore to serverquery clients as it was in 3.0.1!

    I made a ticket for that.
    This needs an overhaul and works as long you did not select any virtual server at this moment.

    The problem as guest query was fixed here, but a wrong login will get banned after 3 tries! This won't be changed.

    Thank you, installed on test server, will test when I get to work since that IP is already in the test server's whitelist.
