    Hey people!
    I have a Virgin Media 10MB connection.
    I did a speed test and im reciving 10mb.
    My server:
    IBM Eserver xSeries 305(or 306 I cannot remember) with the following specs:
    1GB DDR2 Ram
    P4 1.8 Ghz
    Windows XP Professional (Im going to buy Windows Server 2003 soon) SP3
    All the things for Terraria Server Cleint to work have been installed.
    It appeers to be lagging.
    The lag happens with or without players.
    For example you would destroy a wall and a half second later it will give you the resause.
    The game version is 1.3.
    I have port forwarded properly.
    We have tried my freinds internet but thats no better.
    Is this my server being too low specs?
    Its got 20 player slots.

    Hi there,
    I am on Virgin Media and yesterday I tried my first WAN server, and sure enough it would randomly lag.
    However, the server was responding and I could use the "say blahblah" command and everyone would see it.
    At the end of the day Virgin Media are awful, they limit your bandwidth speed if you are a heavy internet user (heavy for them is watching a few YouTube videos) and they cap loads of things, while ripping you off.

    Something that helped for me is connecting to my online server using localhost or the local IP instead of going through my WAN IP address. I am pretty sure it is Virgin down to the fact that a LAN server I run works with absolutely no lag at all.
