verifysignatures=2 keeps clients kicking off
Closed, ResolvedPublic


When the variable verifysignatures is set to 2, clients get immediately kicked off the server (see attachment for error message). The error message indicates that core Arma3 are poorly signed clientside. Uploading the a3.bikey file from the client keys\ to the server folder doesn't help. {F22912}

Same issue on Linux files

Can you try renaming the 'keys' directory to 'Keys'?

verifySignatures = 2 - will result in a ban

verifySignatures = 1 - will result in a ban

verifySignatures = 0 - Playable

I can verify that partly.

If you got all files in the root where installed that, then it is working (I got the cfg files in a subfolder, that is ok).
If you do it like here:
It will not work, so I guess there is a problem with the links, so if you make a subfolder with links to the root folder/files, it is not working well.

@Nasdero Can't verify that, got a vanilla ds linux install with minimal config running and it still kicks clients off, even though addons match bit for bit, symlinks ain't the issue. My guess is the hash function for linux is broken.

Sry I have no more Linux installed right now.

After lowercasing all the signed keys in the keys folder, verifying and updating again, it seems fixed on linux DS after Apex, finally.
