403 Forbidden Problem

dailong 2021-06-12 21:01:50 UTC in Paywall: WMSAuth and beyond

I put 2 dns records for for example server A and B. when i am using referrer filter or token authentication, my browser sometimes request server A change to server B. My live steam will hang and get 403 forbidden error. I need to refresh the player. please help, thanks !

Hello, Dailong.

That's correct, Round-Robin DNS won't work with WMSAuth because session-id (nimblesessionid) is unique for each server. Each time the chunks are requested, different servers respond to such requests, and 403 returned if the session is not found and access is denied.

If you need a load-balancing solution, please check the following article:

Alternatively, you may try using the "absolute_path" option on each server to "stick" the client to the server it started playback from.

Thank you
