    I just installed MP2 besides MP1 and selected Single Seat setup. The strange item I see is that the MP2 Server is on host "update.raxco.com". And it also is frequently disconnected. I already tried uninstall and reinstall (as Weezo servers was also running first), but also 2nd time, it is the same and it just got disconnected again, although the server should be on the same PC.
    Any help would be welcome, as I love the speed of MP2 !
    I included the logs.
    Thanks in advance!

    The unusual naming is most likely due to an entry in the hosts file (found in C:\Windows\System32\Drivers\etc) . A third party software has modified the hosts file so the first entry has to be something like update.raxco.com

    to redirect update requests to localhost...

    To prevent this the first line in the hosts file should be something like "Your Computer Name"

    For pure functionality the order did not matter so you can add this new line before the update.raxco.com line without issues...
