I'm not able to run a second client on my windows 8.1 machines. I've gone through all the configuration articles I could find here (exe's are running as admin, compatibility mode is checked, firewall rules updated (I also turned off the firewall completely and had the same issue) I even tried setting up multiple IP addresses and had each client use a different IP). The "Lock Port" checkbox doesn't allow me to log in, but I tired it out just in case. I can run a single instance just fine, but as soon as I start the 2nd instance, the first instance stops working, with 1 exception, I can still type slash commands (i.e. /who) in the first client's window, but the result show's up in the 2nd client's window. If I type /quit in the first client, it closes down as expected, but 2 seconds after that, the 2nd client gets a message box "lost connection to server" and also closes down.This leads me to think maybe both clients are using the same net7proxy instead of each one using it's own. I know dualboxing isn't supported by the EnB tech staff, so I don't expect a lot of troubleshooting help. But if anyone has run into this before and found a fix for the problem, I'd really appreciate some advice.
