[0.17.4] Player joins w/o being whitelisted

Post by Diablo » Sun Mar 03, 2019 11:26 pm

Hi,

I'm unsure if I should pots it here or somewhere else, but I had, what I believe to be, a strange bug today.
I was hosting a multiplayer game and was using the whitelist (aas i've done before) to limit who can join the game.
However, someone was still able to join, despite not being on the whitelist. (I even checked it right away)
This person did not respond (or barely) to my questions on how he had joined and was seemingly stalling with his answering.
I kicked him out and added him to the ban list but I thought it prudent to still mention it here.

If you need more information, I can provide you with whatever you might need.
This was during a live stream so I even have it on video.

Hope this helps

Diablo

Thanks for the report. Did you actually enable the whitelist in the server settings? Just putting someone in the whitelist doesn't enable it.

Hi Rseding,

Which line requires editing in the server-settings.json file as I cannot find the line for this?

Thanks!
Barnacles

You pass: --use-server-whitelist in the command line options.
