from the Lucas Arts Forums they address various issues including servers.
Dedicated server options ?
We are working to improve the dedicated server programs for both the PS2 and PC versions. We're currently working on a Linux port of the server code. We will then focus on options that will provide admins with greater control and flexibility
Although I am glad to see that they are aware of the problem, I am a bit dissapointed they arent working on a better server. They wont even start on a functional dedicated server with even the most basic options until after
they release the Linux Server. I was under the impression that they had already started. Us Admins arent asking for anything amazing (yet)...we merely want to be able to admin the servers we are paying for....why was it too much to ask to have basic functionality on day one?
