Posted by on - Intermediate Server Tools

Ports Needed

To allow inbound connections you need to be sure that the following ports are open on your firewall and forwarded to the server machine in your local network. This is usually done on your router under the NAT configuration

28000 UDP

28000 TCP

Hosting the server on Windows

On the patcher click the Start Dedicated server button to automatically begin hosting

Hosting the server on a dedicated server running Linux

To host the server running on linux you will first need to install X11vnc server on your system and it will need access to MESA to emulate OpenGL if your system does not have a native opengl compliant graphics card

server@host:~$ screen xinit -- /usr/bin/Xvfb :1 -cc 4 -screen 0 1024x768x16
server@host:~$ screen
x11vnc -display :1 -usepw -forever -shared

You should now be able to connect to your server on port 5900 using any vnc clientOnce connected open up a terminal in the VNC desktop and access the wine cmd system

server@host:~$ wine cmd

Now run the survivor installer

C:\> eae.exe

Once installed navigate to your install dir and run Survivor.exe to allow patching - then click the Start Dedicated button
