Two clients keep disconnecting.

Hello Michael,

I am posting here, hoping that you could help us.

Yesterday, we evaluated VirtualHere trial on two computers (192.168.1.71 and 192.168.1.93) and everyting was fine. So we purchased the full license.
Later we installed the client software on two more computers (192.168.1.30 and 192.168.1.60), but unfortunately they keep disconneting every few seconds.

Bellow I'm attaching the log file.
Any ideas how could we troubleshoot this issue?
I have tried checking for lost packets using the following command: ping "server ip" -t
But everything looks fine.

We have also tested a trial version of a competitive software (I'm not naming it) with the exact same configuration and it works fine on all computers.

The server software is installed on a computer that is directly connected to the server rack of the office(they are both located in the server room). The two working computers (192.168.1.71 and 192.168.1.93) are connected with the server through a switch. And the two computers that get disconnected ( 192.168.1.30 and 192.168.1.60) are connected to the same server through a different switch.

Thnx
George

The server and client know that the connection is active by sending each other ping packets (not ICMP ping, just small tcp packets) and if either side doesnt hear back within 12 seconds the connection is considered broken for some reason (network connection dropped, extremely slow link, wifi drops etc)

The log is showing that the server is not getting a ping tcp packet back within 12 seconds (every couple of minutes) and it closes the connection as it thinks its dead.

In the problematic virtualhere client right click USB Hubs->About Statistics and then watch the graph latency. What does that show? E.g average ms and is it very variable?

Also double check your ethernet cables are properly plugged in. Ive seen this before with loose cables. VirtualHere normally uses TCP for communication (and can use UDP, perhaps the other software is using UDP which is slightly more tolerant of network issues)

thanks Michael,

thanks Michael,
I will give it a try and I will let you know.

test done

Hello Michael,
I checked the graph on two computers. One is ok, the otherone is really bad.
I have uploaded a couple of pictures.

Does it look like a loose cable?

Anyway I could switch to UDP?

Thnx

Michael
.

Yes it looks like a loose cable or some hardware issue, 1160 is way too high. Try to replace that ethernet cable with another one or double check the ethernet port hardware, maybe its broken

Hello Michael.
I have performed a few tests.
First I connected one of the problematic computers (192.168.1.60) directly to the server with a new cable, but still no imporovement.
Then I placed one of the problematic computers on the same desk with the good computer (192.168.1.93) and used the ethernet cable from the good computer on the problematic computer. But again there was no improvement.
I belive that clears out that it is not a bad cable.

That made me think that there is somethink wrong with the computer itself.
SoI tried:
-updating the network adapter driver
-uninstalling the antivirus
-disabling the firewall
but nothing helped...

Any ideas what should I check next?

Michael
.

I think what i would do in that situation is plug in a usb->Ethernet adapter into the back of the computer and try that instead. Do you have one of those?

axinar
.

thanks for the advice. I don't have one but I will order a USB to ethernet adapter and I'm also going to order a PCI-e ethernet card just in case.

Hello Michael, I have finally tested using a usb-ethernet and I can say that there is a huge improvement.
Still not perfect but definitely thing are looking much better https://imgur.com/sLNbTs3
Hopefully there wont be any disconnects from now on.
I will keep you updated in case something goes wrong.

Michael

Great! Thanks for letting me know, those latencies look fine
