So I'm going to go ahead and assume this issue hasn't been fixed. Just re-subbed a couple of days ago, after about a year, and I keep receiving socket closed errors. It's really ruining my experience...

They don't give a damn. It isn't happening to enough people to even bother looking at it.

I also cannot login. Receiving an error message: "Login Failed: Unable to validate the authentication token provided by the launcher. This can be caused by excessive system load. Please try again after one minute or contact EVE customer support."

[update] nevermind. It took me about 10 attempts but I finally got in Big smile

Last 5 months I barely play the game cos of "Socket closed". Unplayable.

Per a suggestion from CCP support, I opened the Help channel on my clients. With the Help channel open on each client, my clients no longer socket close while idle. While not a fix, this workaround at least makes the game playable again.

My guess is the Help channel's constant activity is driving constant inbound network traffic, thus keeping the connection alive.

Just returned to the game and am receiving the socket closed error a couple of times in the hour. Make's the game pretty pointless to play.

Since the Citadel Patch I have this problem, too.
I run 3 Clients over the new launcher.
One client closes, the other clients continue to run fine.....

I tried the trick with the help channel but it did not help.

Well, I just had this error. I was out roaming in low sec pvping then I noticed my directional scanner was scanning in a permanent state while in warp to a gate... Then socket closed.

It happen approximately 02:16 for me in Hikkoken system. TS was fine, web browsing was fine. Not just eve clients not responding, so was the website for eve-online. Its been like 5-7 minutes of trying to get back in so I rebooted the router and was able to log in.

So do any of you guys have a router with some form of load balancing? I had this bug till i tured off whatever kind of load balancing it used, it changes the route you take to the server of CCP and it makes you disconnect.

I've also been getting the socket closed error over the past week. Almost never before that.

Googled Eve online socket issues and the first result is a link to eve online support, great......

Unfortunately I am not authorized to access that page.

Really CCP? I mean really?

Good grief.

Had this issue about 4 weeks ago , then logged a support ticket and the problem went away. I upgraded the OS on my Mac to the latest revision on Saturday morning (in hindsight a dumb idea) and the problem returned instantly.

Tried going 2 jumps last night and got socket closed errors 5 times in 10 minutes. Definitely worse when undocked and if the server is busy.

well, after having other application issues and then searching on google about slow wifi on el capitan after updating, i was overwhelmed with responses. i followed a set of instructions to basically delete my old wifi connection and network preferences and add a fresh connection. Now everything seems to be working like a charm.

Just came back to eve after over a year... resubbed my 2 accounts and been running them both on one screen or at least i have been trying ;) One of them constantly get the socked closed error while the other is running without any issue no dcs, no lag, nothing... still running that client idle in the background while writting this post, no problems whatsoever but as soon as i relog on the second account it's 10 minutes and its socked closes.

So kinda expect this to be solved soon, I am back and want to play (and pay) but if I cant even use my accounts than whats the point... pretty disappointed, was looking forward to a weekend of eve and now this

Oh well nevermind now the account I have been running in the background socked closed as well Ugh Eve like the old days RollRollRoll

Unable to run clients from launcher, getting this respond every time now:

Connection Failed

Could not connect to the specified address. Odds are that you have not established an internet connection, the server isn't running, or the server address or port number was wrong.

Several days not been able to log in with any account.
