Spark 2.8 gets in a “Reconnecting” loop when using Windows 10 and the network interface changes. I can duplicate this problem on several Windows 10 machines. It persists until the user “Logs Out” of Spark and logs back in. More details:
I’m using Spark 2.8 with Windows 10. When a user’s laptop is docked, they’re on the dock’s wired ethernet interface, and they connect to Spark without a problem. When they undock, their wifi connection now handles networking. Spark will not reconnect, it instead goes into the “Reconnecting…” loop, gradually adding seconds and minutes. Meanwhile the user is not necessarily aware they’re no longer logged into Spark unless they have their Buddies window open.
If they Log Out of Spark when on Wifi, and log back in, they’re fine… until they dock again and it gets stuck in that same Reconnecting loop.
Basically it’s like Spark is binding to the available network interface and when that interface changes, it keeps trying that interface even if it no longer exists. We only have a few Windows 10 laptops and all of them exhibit this problem. We have many more Windows 7 laptops running Spark and they do not have this problem.
Anyone else seen this problem or know what the fix is?
