FastConnect mode

If this option turns on, Mudfish is working as proxy server rather than router. To turn on this option, you can set it at ‘Setup -> Program’ menu.

How it works

In this mode, Mudfish intercepts all incoming traffics going to the destination defined by items and mimics that Mudfish is a destination server itself.

So in a view of client, it looks like that the destination server is at very closer location within 0 ~ 2 ms.

Caviets

  • Don’t use for UDP based games (e.g. Counter Striker or League Of Legends). This option is useful for TCP based games only.
  • When this option is enabled, “Realtime RTT Graph” on dashboard isn’t available.
