Does your client work on the official test server? If not, most likely a ISP or network issue. You can try Cloudflare Warp, for example.

Put this in your server.cfg
set sv_kick_players_cnl 0

Hey, im also having this issue. Ive already followed the Guidelines on Github. Also The Server Owner said that he wont disable CNL Kick, due to security concerns.

We do face the same problem for some of our users.

The last days DTAG (deutsche Telekom) ↔ CF (Cloudflare) is very hard to use, its an ongoing topic for years not but 2024 is the worst time.

It makes the client load the server list for more than 30 seconds,
rendering the client useless. We used it too for our webservices but switched back to direkt connection.

Can someone get more into sv_kick_players_cnl ?
Cannot find anything on the net about it, would like to know more about the “security concerns”.
