Red face UT3 Server Problem

Ok from what i've a lot of people are having problems setting up a dedicated UT3 server. I organise month lan's in my town and wanted to get a UT3 server up and running. I know what u are going to so, read the other posts. I have and as clued up as i am with computers i just can't figure this out!

SO if someone would be able to help me a would really appreciate it.

Here is a bit of info about the lan and the server i'm running it on.
There is no firewall besides the windows firewall on the pc & the ip is
There are no routers on this network, just switches. There could possibly be a dhcp server running but that prob won't happen for the first couple events!

If anyone can help, let me say thank u in advance!

The wiki should provide enough information to get a server started, if you have had any previous ut game admin experience. Not much has changed for the execution of a server, just the location of the files

I start my server with -configsubdir=<directory name> on the commandline. This means that all the server config files now reside in

<ut3ded directory>/UTGame/Config/<directory name>/

whilst the packages now reside in (which is available serverwide)

<ut3ded directory>/UTGame/CookedPC/

For packages that used to reside in System/ under the old games they now live in the root of <ut3ded directory>/UTGame/CookedPC/ and the sub directories under CookedPC are familiar enough from previous games that you should have little problems determining where to put new packages.

My test server is a linux server which i only set up the other night running BiaVote, here is the basic startup script i'm using. Should be able to tweak it to fit win32 if required.


### UT3 Dedicated Server Startup Script



COMMAND='./ut3 server'

cd ${UT3DIR}/Binaries/
nohup ${COMMAND} ${MAP}?Mutator=${MUTATORS}?numplay=${NUMPLAY}?maxp layers=${MAXPLAYERS}?timelimit=${TIMELIMIT}?goalsc ore=${GOALSCORE}?botskill=${BOTSKILL} -port=${PORT} -configsubdir=${CONFIGDIR} -nohomedir -unattended > ${LOGFILE} &
could do with refining and additional functionality, oneday

Hope this helps. Although i may be entirely on the wrong path here. My server would no show up in the client browser without -nohomedir, which was the same behaviour i experience with one of our ut99 servers initially.

I'm supposed to be installing a win32 dedi once a box arrives at my place so will able to relay any problems/fixes i come across. Hopefully none.
