FastDL Setup Questions

So I’m hosting a dedicated server, and I have before, but I’ve never used FastDL.

First of all, is it possible to just use a server with the garrysmod directory at the root and set the sv_downloadurl to the IP:Port? Or do I actually have to go pay for hosting and all that jazz.

Also, I hear that I have to write a script so the clients can download anything other than the cache files. Is this true?

Sorry if I’m being a total noob, I just have no idea where to go to look for this. None of the FastDL tutorials I’ve read are very detailed at all.

I don’t think you can do that with the directory.
You also don’t have to pay for hosting there are plenty of hosters that are free, but of course the have a limited amount of space to upload.
I use http://x10hosting.com/ and it seems to work fine.

That fixes my problem. Thanks.

All good, any problems just ask.
