I am getting the following error when attempting to connect with the Telnet service.
It has been working just fine up until about 1 week ago.
I have not made any changes to the RAT3 settings, or the 7D2D server settings.
It just stopped working..

Help ;)

The only time I've seen this is, when someone had a power outage or their PC locked up, etc. That can result in a corrupt database file. Try the following

Close RAT
Rename %appdata%/nomadsoft/rat3/7d2d_rat3.db to something else.
Rerun the Add/Remove programs for RAT and use the repair option
Restart RAT
You'll need to reconfigure RAT again though, but it should work. Otherwise, the best I can say is to backup that .db file on occasion.

Thank you for the information, I did both steps of your suggestion and it is now working as intended once again :)
