Hi. I currently have a server running on my computer and I’m trying to host another. How do i host 2 servers at 1 time?
Change the port the second one runs on to 27016
-port 27016 on the command line startup I think.
How do I do that. Sorry i’m just new to porting.
If I recall correctly, if you attempt to start up another instance of srcds it will set itself to the next free port.
Add +port 27016 to your command line.
I’ve tried -port 27016 and +27016 in my command line and it didn’t work.
It’s +port 27016 not +27016, also that port has to be open or else it’s just local server.
didn’t work what, you have open the 27016 port? (When i need to create multiple servers, i just open multiple instance and srcds auto-select the ports)
It is -port <port> and not +port <port>. Ports are engine parameters and not console commands and thus has to use -
Also, make sure 27016 & possibly 27017 ports are open. For me, it goes to 27017 when I start another for some reason.
But everyone else is right… You can manually set the port, or you can just open up another server on the same port ( and the server will say the port is in use, and select the next free such s 27016, etc… )
How much time did you spend on making that tutorial?
Was the time taken to write it a waste?
Thanks for the link, Acecool. People constantly ask me questions relating to server hosting and it’ll come in handy when I can just send this to them.
Any-time. The link locations may change in the near future when my site is back up. In the meantime, the FastDL tutorial may help too: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/26074909/tutoring/server_srcds_steamcmd/fastdl_setup_instructions.lua.html
