Connection has been lost



  • This is probably a network issue and likely it is not a bug with nodebb, but I thought I report it just in case it is happening to others. One of my users who is on a satellite connection reported this problem:

    I see others can post, and
    wondering if it is my satelite connection is too slow or somthing. I
    can login, and then as soon as I submit... spinny icon

    I have not received any other reports of this problem yet. Do you think it really is an issue with his network or could be a bug related to the socket connection?



  • If no one else is having the issues, it's most likely just his connection. Satellite internet is far from ideal.

    A particular quirk of satellite internet is that while the bandwidth is fairly high (compared to ISDN or dial-up, anyway), the latency is really high, on the order of several seconds at best.

    For a service like socket.io to work, it ought to be real-time, or as close as possible, and things like satellite internet really get in the way.

    My question is why isn't it dropping down to xhr.. that would be a little easier to work with I'd imagine...

    @julian I don’t know, is that something I should configure in the theme or is that function in the core?



  • @arasbm, if NodeBB cannot establish a steady socket connection with a user, it should drop down to xhr polling automatically.
