Received an unknown query

Post by Barbie » Sat Jul 02, 2022 11:21 pm

Recently I noticed dozens of such entries in the server's log:
ucc.init.log wrote:[00:13:27]
[00:13:47] Received an unknown query from: (IP address hidden).
[00:13:47] Query: game_property\bUseTranslocator
[00:13:47] Received an unknown query from: (IP address hidden).
[00:13:47] Query: game_property\bMultiWeaponStay
[00:13:47] Received an unknown query from: (IP address hidden).
[00:13:47] Query: game_property\bNoMonsters
[00:13:47] Received an unknown query from: (IP address hidden).
[00:13:47] Query: game_property\bNoCheating
[00:13:47] Received an unknown query from: (IP address hidden).
[00:13:47] Query: game_property\GameSpeed
[00:13:47] Received an unknown query from: (IP address hidden).
[00:13:47] Query: game_property\bForceRespawn
[00:13:47] Received an unknown query from: (IP address hidden).
[00:13:47] Query: game_property\AirControl
[00:13:47] Received an unknown query from: (IP address hidden).
[00:13:47] Query: game_property\bNoTeamChanges
[00:13:47] Received an unknown query from: (IP address hidden).
[00:13:47] Query: game_property\RemainingTime
It repeats all 10 seconds from that IP address (which looks like a dialup connection).
The server is running "XServerQuery211_fix3".

Is something wrong here?

Yes. Your server. :loool:

This query come from beta testers upcoming v469c patch.
https://github.com/OldUnreal/UnrealTour ... issues/439

According to protocol server must support this queries or at least not treat it as error.

But XServerQuery drop of support of it.

And additionally flood in log. Which can be disaster for you after v469c/d out.

What's a possible solution then? Fixing XServerQuery211? Switching back to stock IpServer?

bLogUnknownQuerys set to false. If you really wanna see unknown query except this (idk for what), I can fix it.
