I’m following the instructions to setup WPT 2.10 on a Windows 2012 server (64bit) and it all goes fine until I install the dummynet service at step 10. The RDP connection drops as expected after installing, but then I can’t re-connect to the server. Rebooting it from the hosting control panel doesn’t fix it. I’ve tried this 3 times now & it happens each time, I’m not sure what I’m doing wrong.
Did you run the testmode.cmd as an administrator before installing the driver? You may also need to reboot before it becomes effective (look for a test mode notice in the bottom-right corner of your desktop).
If you did go into test mode and reboot, then it’s possible there is a driver incompatibility. I had issues when I tried to install it into Amazon’s server 2012 AMI’s and I haven’t been able to debug it (since the server becomes unreachable right after install). I haven’t been able to reproduce it locally in any VMs.
No good news anyway. It’s impossible to debug and I can’t reproduce it on vanilla Xen or any other VPS infrastructure so unless they release new drivers, dummynet gets updated for other reasons or we find a new way to traffic shape that does work it doesn’t look too good.
I was running into this same issue, we tried a bit of everything on AWS, including running:
Windows Server 2003
Windows Server 2008 32-bit
Windows Server 2008 64-bit
Enabling test mode/rebooting
The prebuild AMIs seem to be a good option, the only thing is that we could not get a password for them. So we tried Microsft Azure. The agent worked right of the bat, and dummynet works like charm. Most importanltly it accelarated the developement of our solution. I’m not a fan of Microsoft, but you might want to give it a try.
