We are tracking an issue where players are encountering error 30009 when attempting to login to the game. Sometimes, this will clear up after enough time has passed but other times players will need to contact RSI Support for assistance with their account.
This issue crops up most often when players logout or crash while inside a ship or in a no-fly zone. For now until we can track down the cause, we recommend avoiding logging out in a ship's bed to limit the chances of this occurring.
If you were playing with a friend before you left the game while on-board a ship and encountered this error, if your ship is still present in game, have your friend destroy your ship.
Should you encounter this issue and the above work around is not possible, attempt the following steps to try to resolve this:
