UDP Test tool updated - again
« on: September 28, 2019, 03:19:00 AM »
Recently I'd been playing around with development of the RailPro CGNat proxy (quite successfully too) more so because I'd like to see the project through as a personal accomplishment than anything else and I came to realise how bad the UDP test tool and associated test webpage were when it came to displaying test results. I never intended for users to try and self diagnose with the tools and the test results were probably to many people the same as it would be to me looking at a scientific journal - gibberish, but self diagnose is what people have tried to do.

To that end because there is no end in sight for the issue (been what, 9 months since TR finally admitted the problem was his with still no fix?) over the last couple of days I've been improving the test tool and the test webpage to give much more meaningful test results to anyone who uses the tools to self diagnose their connection problem if they can't connect to RE's file server. This is likely the last time I'll do any maintaining of the tools.

I've also updated the Running Tests and Getting to know the software threads accordingly. If your interested to see, the Running Tests thread has the screen shots of webpage and test tool test results for the PAT Test (formally known as Connection Test) , which is test results I improved.
