Hi

Using consecutive ports for the different Rainbow servers is a great idea. Setting up QoS is much quicker/easier this way. I see that freezerail still uses a funny port number, any chance this will change so we can just open a single port range and be done?

The rainbow servers are spread across the globe, so they are on different physical servers, some of them have locked port ranges, and some are behind firewalls, thats the reason for different ports on different servers.

But if it was done for 4 servers it arguably could be done for all of them, right?

Some servers are behind corporate firewalls which blocks the ports, so no; it wouldn't work on all servers all the time unfortunately.

Oh, I got it now. Well, this was an advance already.
