Set up a dedicated Unreal Tournament server under Ubuntu. Review all instructions on this page before you begin. Commands issued at the command prompt in this section are done so as superuser or root unless otherwise specified. When installed, Ubuntu does not ask for a root password to be specified. Either set a root password using sudo passwd root so that you can log in as superuser, or enter the commands listed in this guide prefixed with 'sudo'. This guide uses the Nano application for text editing because of its simplicity. Alternative text editors are available.
Networking Overview. Client-Server Model. Multiplayer Programming Quick Start. Launching and Testing Your Dedicated Server. The server-client model used by Unreal Engine represents network multiplayer games with one server acting as the host of the game, and players joining that game as clients. The true game state is moderated by the server, while each player controls their pawns remotely with an autonomous proxy. The server then replicates changes out to each connected client so that all players experience a very close approximation of the game being played on the server. Where a listen server represents a player hosting a game on their machine, a dedicated server is a server that runs headlessly. A headless server does not render any visuals, and there is nobody playing on it locally. This enables a dedicated server to focus on gameplay logic and moderating incoming information from clients, making the most of its resources for hosting a game.
