    I just updated to Ravenhearst 3.1.5. Now, I cannot get the dedicated server to start.

    Im getting a message in RAT Logs to the effect of : No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it

    I only updated the files. I did not change any configuration.

    Appreciate some assistance. Thank you

    Sounds like your game server is running (or not running) on a different port/IP than before? That error is typical for having either the host or port set incorrectly, or that the server isn't actually running in order to connect to it.

    Thank you for the reply.

    Its frustrating for us non-IT types. I downloaded the update files like ive done before. I dragged and dropped the server and data folders into my 7D2D folder directory - a few files were replaced. I manually copied SMX and SDX files across.

    All this was done with server shutdown. I then hit restart. Ive done this maybe a dozen times without issue. Not sure where to go now.

    Any suggestions on next steps?

    Thank you.

    If you join Discord here: Discord - Free voice and text chat for gamers

    I'll do what I can to help you out. I don't know your timezone, but I'm GMT -8, so I'm only available after 5pm my time. But there are others there that help as well, so you can ask questions, etc. =)

    This is the error I'm receiving:

    2018-05-04 00:04:46 ----------------------------------
    Current Time: 4/5/2018 12:04:46 AM
    Thrown by: Void .ctor(System.String, Int32)
    Method: telnet.LogException
    Message: No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it 127.0.0.1:8081
    Stack Trace:

    ----------------------------------

    I am GMT +8 (Singapore) Looks like a pretty big difference : )

    I have discord. Usually, I'm able to add channels to my discord. Apparently, this is not possible with JFF discord. Is there a way to get an invite? If I try to use JFF discord, it prompts me to sign up - don't really need another discord acct. I'm probably doing something wrong... Old guy - tech is moving faster than me : )
