    What do I need to start my own server?

    I would like to start my own server so I can play UT2004 with a certain mod that I downloaded and I like a lot.

    But I know nothing about what I need.

    You would need to contact a hosting company about renting a server.

    Google "Gaming Server Rentals"

    Should put you where you want to be.

      if its just for fun you could just host it on your own computer - if it has high enough specs

        Thanks guys.

        Maybe I'll try and host with my computer and see what happens.

        I'm cheap.

          Don't host on the same computer you play on -- the server eats up all the CPU and RAM. Instead, do what I do. Get a low end (2ghz p4, 1gb pc2100, 40gb hd, etc...) PC and a router, and spilt the connection between the computers. Then, use the low end PC to function as a dedicated server, and the other to play on. You will need at least a 512kbps (60KB/s) upload speed to host a decent server however.

            OK

            I have cable. I'm thinking of buying a new computer maybe I can use the computer I have now for the server. Do I need to UT loaded on both computers?

              Yes, if you need a mod installed.

                  And don't forget to open up all the in and outcoming ports on your server computer

                  Just search 'Server Ports' in this forum and you'll find it in no time.

                      Indeed, but if you have it all set you can enjoy yourself greatly!
