For scripts that you can run on your own dedicated server, see Dedicated Server Scripts. The server has been tested on Ubuntu Memory requirements increase as the number of connected players increases.
Some mods increase RAM more than others. On Windows Server R2, the server uses 2. On Linux, the installation uses 3. The server listens for incoming connections on the ports listed below.
Ensure your network configuration allows incoming connections to these ports and directs them to the host that will be running your dedicated server. You can host multiple dedicated servers on the same host, however be aware that CPU and memory should be monitored carefully if they are busy servers rather than test servers. The game server requires glibc 2. Ubuntu To install the required version of glibc on a Debian 7 Wheezy host:. Note: this procedure does not upgrade the host to Debian Unstable sid ; only glibc itself and any packages it depends upon are updated.

UFW is the firewall on Ubuntu. Keep in mind that this is only a temporary solution, and should only be used if neither of the other scripts apply for your system. To make it safe for reboots see the documentation of your distribution, how to add firewall ports to the existing configuration files - or how to add scripts to the boot process.Register now to gain access to all of our features.

Same, I tried official servers and other unofficial servers an could log in no issue I also found other SS servers beside my own and could NOT log in. After loading through official it seems to have allowed me to get into my SS now. Not sure what that changed or if its permanent but it loaded right in.

Since gamelaunch, I will have to connect an excessiv amount of time to enter the server and its driving me nuts. I tried so many things, like validate, remove firewall and anti-virus. Connect through server screen in steam, join a friends "game" when hes on the server im trying to get into.
This seems like a much bigger problem. Please upvote so we can get some light on this. Steam forums and ark forums are slowly starting to get topics on this as well, but no response from ark. Its the first x2 week after launch, really sucks missing out on this! I found a "way" to fix it for now, its really fucking stupid that we have to do it like this.
But it worked for me. You only need it connected while joining the server, as soon as you join the server, you can turn it off, get a lag spike and then boom, not using data on the vpn and still connected to server. Tunnelbear is the only one I tried and it worked, it's also very easy to use and seems very professional, so I don't fear my privacy.
Im out of ideas now what to try, been trying to connect for 2hours, cant connect to any official server. So I'm trying to trace the issue through my hardware firewall now. I'm having the same problem.
