Uplink Setup

Summary

  • It's highly recommended that you check for the latest patches before uplinking your server. In some games, like Unreal Tournament, the recommended server patch will differ greatly from the recommended playing patch. A good solution is to have two copies and use one exclusively for running servers

  • In your game config, same name as your executable but ends in .ini. UnrealTournament.ini for example

Unreal Tournament:

UT451 Linux, 451b Windows. You'll need to use New_IpServer, SecureValidate, or XServerQuery
(The first parameter after the = may be slightly different depending on which of the above you use)

  • Please note that due to a bug on the Linux IpDrv library, you can't have more than three uplink actors on Linux servers. The bug is with resolving more than three hostnames to ip addresses at the same time, therefore your server won't crash if you use hostnames three times and stick to ip addresses for any extras

  • A fresh list of servers can be obtained by creating a link like on the UpdateServerAddress page, with the URL appended to look like one of the UpdateServers (look under the game's MasterServers heading)

  • Incoming firewall rules will need to be allowed and forwarded for UDP game query ports (7778-7779). Included if you are enabling player connect on both tcp and udp ports (7777-7781)
