Preparing to connect

Paid for my subscription even though i've been struggling with the 3 day trial only to find that I am still unable to access "my gaming rig" with an annoying message saying Preparing to connect for the past 20 minutes.

Hi Curivity, Thank you for your reply, and any reason why my machine would shutdown suspicious activity or something ?

#4 December 5th 2017, 21:04
@Natjayy - did you receive any notice or message when it shut down?

#5 December 5th 2017, 21:06
Just said shutting down as if it was my pc then the screen changed from the virtual back to mine with snoost saying about suspicious activity. and all these years ive always trusted steam lol

The system has some automatic mechanisms that automatically kills a server if any suspicious activity is detected (torrenting, mining etc.) as these activities violates the terms.

If it was a mistake please just let us know in the customer service, then we'll dig into why it might have suspended the rig and see if it got caught wrongly.

I've just updated so I will check again, It might have been a glitch in the old version maybe, If the issue persist I will drop you a line in customer service.

Thanks Rune for your reply and getting back to me
