It must have been me starting/stoping it to often. 

One other thing, what is needed to run a netrek server for public use?
lando.eagle.y.se is a SPARCstation 4, 110 MHz MicroSPARC, 96 MB ram and
2 mbit connection, Is this enough or will it be slow/lagged with a lot of
people? I have played a game on it with ~10 players, and some complained a
bit about lag, but they were mostly from the US and the server is located
in sweden, with Swedish and European players as it's target.
