 +==== Why is Tox killing my internet connection? ====
 +
 +Some routers go offline when using Tox, as they incorrectly track UDP packets sent to an ip/port as an individual connection, eventually hitting a connection limit and disconnecting. This is partially a core issue, and work is being done to mitigate its effect. In the meantime, there is a workaround - **disable UDP in your Tox client**, as this will reduce the number of connections tracked by the router.

 +==== Both Parties must be online for a message to send ====
 +Tox messaging of all kinds requires both parties to be online at the time the exchange takes place. Some clients implement pseudo-offline messages, where they save a message and schedule it for delivery the next time you and your friend are both online. This is safe, but it still requires both parties to be online. The developers are working on an implementation of offline messaging which works without compromising the security, privacy, and decentralization that Tox promises.

 +If you use a client which allows you to schedule [[users:​offline_messaging#​pseudo-offline_messaging_vs_fully_offline_messaging| pseudo-offline messages]], in order for them to be delivered you have to both be online. If you are the person who scheduled the message, staying online at your computer will help maximize the chance you will be online at the same time as the intended recipient, but leaving your computer or device unattended with messages visible on the screen is a potential security risk to somebody who just happens to walk by.
