    Duma OS Logs

    Do you have a VPN subscription? VPN is only normally used on consoles in specific circumstances so if you’ve not used one before you most likely don’t need it.

    Duma OS Logs

    Don’t worry about the logs, they are only for developers and are perfectly normal. if your only getting lag when you ADS or are in gunfights then it sounds like it’s your your opponents who have high pings or the servers are poor. You could try forcing servers in different locations to see if that helps. If you wanted to rule out any issues on your end you could run some PingPlotter tests.

    Icons with the dashed circle are players/ servers that have been found by ping assist. the icons with solid circles are whitelisted servers, they are either authentication servers (servers the game needs to get you online) or you have added them to your allow list.

    That server has been found by ping assist. In reality it will be a lot closer to your location and you will have a low ping to the server. it is just incorrectly located in the cloud database. Theres more on ping assist here: http://support.netduma.com/support/solutions/articles/16000087579--dumaos-optimal-settings-guide-ping-assist

  6. We get you are frustrated, but being aggressive and rude isn’t the way to go about it. we are all happy to help you with your issues but if you aren’t going to engage with support offered then it’s difficult to help. im going to lock this now but if you actually would like some help please create another thread.
  7. Changing your WiFi channel could help. Download a WiFi analyser and find the least congested channel and change to that.
  8. Previous comment deleted as it’s not helpful. If you would like support for your issues please post the screenshots Fraser asked for. If not I’ll lock the thread as it’s going off topic.

    How to force a game on a dedicated server?

    I wouldn’t advise trying to play on Australian servers, it would be completely unplayable as the ping will be 300-400ms but defiantly worth trying servers in other locations. If you do want to force a server in a different location: Set geofilter to the location you want to force a server. enable filtering mode enable strict mode set ping assist to 0 make sure fast search is disabled boot up the game and search search times can sometimes take longer when forcing servers in different locations. If you make any changes to the geofilter you must reboot the game.

    Restart router remotely

    Remote access is not currently available on DumaOS but I believe it will be implemented in the future.

    Cant Connect xr500 :(

    To login to a Netgear router it’s either routerlogin.net or is the IP address of the Netduma R1

    Need help with my ROUTERS

    Hi Welcome to the forum. The best way to stop double NAT is to put your a&t gateway into modem mode (if it has that feature) failing that, put the R1s IP address into your the DMZ of your gateway. There is also a guide on getting an open NAT here: http://support.netduma.com/support/solutions/articles/16000076587-dumaos-optimal-settings-guide-open-nat

    If you want to force a server in a specific location you need to have: filtering mode enabled, strict mode enabled, ping assist set to 0 and fast search disabled. Restart the game after making any changes then search.
  15. The likelihood is that you will be connecting to a dedicated server it will just be incorrectly classified as a peer. The easiest way to check is: go into the Network menu on BO4 and look at the long number at the top right of the screen. If the number has an E at the end it’s a dedicated server.
