LAN Cache
Hello folks,

it seems that Steam switched their CDN over to HTTPS.

I'm an organizer from a small LAN Party in germany and we did rely on a caching solution like Steamcache to save Internet bandwidth.

Will there be any possibility to disable HTTPS ?

The fact that they pulled off this change right before the weekend without any warning is probably a good hint how much Valve cares for LAN organizers...

Yeah, I guess that's true ....

I tried the Steam Site Server the caching method from steam. But it is slow as ♥♥♥♥... never get over 3MB/s
Well, looks like I was too harsh on Valve because they did roll back the change and promised to make a workaround available before changing to HTTPS again: https://www.reddit.com/r/lanparty/comments/bjee21/resolved_caching_for_steam_using/

Thanks a lot, guys
