Setting Up Imminent Monitors Dedicated Server on Linux

02. November 2017 Tutorial 2

Installing Mono

To install Mono please follow the instructions on this page according to your Linux distribution.

Once you have successfully installed Mono please run the following command to install dependencies we need:

sudo apt-get install mono-vbnc

Running The Dedicated Server

To begin, please navigate to your Imminent Monitor installation directory, and find the folder named “Dedicated Server”

In the folder you should find 4 files, please select the following and copy them to your Linux server

Once you have copied these files to your server please navigate to the correct directory in which they are stored, for the sake of this tutorial they are stored in “/home/dedi”

To confirm your files are there, run the “ls” command

Once you have done this please run the following command according to your settings

mono DedicatedServer_Console.exe client_port=9003 server_port=3009 server_password=example

You should now see the following output

Connecting To Your Dedicated Server

Assuming your Linux server is accepting connections, open up Imminent Monitor and navigate to the “Ports / Dedicated Servers” section and click “Dedicated Server Manager” in the bottom left of the panel, once the dialog is shown please enter / edit the following information and click “Connect”

Configuring Your Client To Connect To Your Dedicated Server

To allow a Client file to connect to your dedicated server is extremely simple. Simply go through the normal build process (tutorial here), but instead of your systems IP address in the “Network Settings”, change it to your Linux Servers IP address like so

Closing Remarks

The Dedicated Server can only accept one Imminent Monitor Controller connecting to it at once for security.
