We now have a dedicated server application. You can download it here:. Install "Conan Exiles Dedicated Server" found in your steam library tools. NOTE: Currently if you try to start the dedicated server build from the steam client, you will get some error messages about steam DLLs.

What is OpenVPN?
Why run the server on your LAN instead of remote hosting (rental server)?
As noted previously in our OpenVPN article , this is an open-source Windows software package used to create a secure, site-to-site tunneled VPN connection that provides remote access between two locations. Some functionality that is handled within the admin interface includes tunneling, routing, encryption , user management, authentication , and many other features. In the WebGUI, an admin can check routing options, privileges, network configurations, user validation, and other parameters. This application allows users to link to the VPN server directly in one of three ways.

After a few rounds of iterating, we wanted to make this tool available to you guys for testing and feedback. We also made this walkthrough to, hopefully, make the tool easy to understand. The Dedicated Server Launcher is a small utility program designed to make it easier for players to run their own Conan Exiles Dedicated Server. When reporting issues, please specify which version you are using. Also, ideally, the file should be in its own folder on a disk with enough space to host the unpacked SteamCMD installation and associated game server about 2 gigabytes at the moment. At this point the tool will automatically install and update SteamCMD, which will then download the game server program as well as any mod you have specified. NOTE: Upgrading to a new version is just a matter of having the new executable at the same location as the old one, they should be compatible. So, in case you encounter an issue with a more recent version, just go to the history section and download the previous one. The Server Settings section of the UI allows you to modify the critical parameters of your server without having to actually run it, including which branch, name, region, and passwords you want it to use.
Half of the top-ten most-played games on Steam come with the option to customize your entire gameplay, right up through running your own dedicated server. Are you going to sit back and play the game how somebody else envisioned it, or are you going to grab the goat by the horns, run your own server, and make it personal? There are many reasons why people rent a server from a remote provider; ranging from bandwidth availability, dedicated support, or even to eliminate any latency advantages between player and host. Remote hosting can sometimes be a headache. All you need is to save the parts you replace when you upgrade, and build a new system out of it. A dedicated server is often more stable than the game client itself. If something goes wrong on your gaming machine and you need to close the game or reboot your system, those that are connected to the server can still play and enjoy the game. There are many options to remotely control the server. For modern Windows systems, there is the option to use the free Remote Desktop Connection software from Microsoft. RDC lets you connect to another computer using login credentials as if you were physically at the computer.
