Rarely it happens that there is a connection shown at the server which is actually not present (fake connection). It seems the server connects to itself in this situation.

Interestingly, if a regular client disconnects from the server, the fake connection also disappears.

    It may have something to do with the IP addresses used in a local network. The router has the external IP address but the client has a local IP address. If the server is in the same local address region, it may happen that the router does apply for some packets the external IP address and then switches to the local IP address as the sender IP address. The llcon server now seems to receive a connection from both IP addresses.

    But this is just a guess from what I have seen recently...

    If one switches, e.g., from WLAN to wired LAN, the IP address changes and we have a "fake connection" at the server. This is because there is no disconnect message transmit to the server on the old IP address since Jamulus does not know about the own IP address change. But the "fake connection" disappears after a short while so there is no real problem here. I do not see a requirement to fix this because it is no real problem here. So I will close this problem report now.
