    Hi,
    I am setting up a peer and I get the following messages in the binkstats.ini file.
    I get a callout failure even though the traffic appears to be sent properly somehow.

    "returned 0" also usually means success.

    Either way, I think that's just telling you that Irex is hot garbage these days, and doesn't follow the standard in regards to how it's supposed to handshake/authenticate. ;)

    It's kind of a mystery without more debugging of what's the actual failure being detected in BinkP.prototype.session or BinkP.prototype.connect in load/binkp.js. Feel free to add some debugging if you want to find the issue, but if all looks fine and packets/files are flowing, then you can probably safely ignore the error as well.
