Cripes!!!! I know a LOT about setting up a server with COD, but I know NOTHING about Linux!!! But, as difficult as it is to fill in the gaps as regards my deficeit of knowledge about Linux, I'm sure that with a little research i can translate what I know about a Windows COD server into a Linux COD server. First though: What type of server are you trying to set up: a Non-dedicated (client-to-client); Internet; or dedicated server? The differences are significant in terms of the hardware setup you will require - for example: a 'true' dedicated server requires 2 pcs - 1 for the server, 1 for the client. So an answer is crucial at this stage. Is there 1 pc available, or 2? To help me help u to answer this question, first let me explain the differences between these different servers in Windows terms. Then, upon the answer I recieve from you about the windows servers, i can do some research as regards Linux, and see if we can't translate it and crack this together. So, my questions: What version of Linux are you using? E.g. Redhat? Whatever, your answer to that question, more importantly is the question - what 'type' of server are you wanting to set up? I would advise a non-dedciited server for someone who has never run a server before. But I'll give details of a 'public' or internet server below as well. Non-Dedicated Server This type of server uses the internet to connect client-to-client (and is therefore really P2P), and is dependent on the server/client relationship - when the client disconnects the server disconnects. For a non-dedicated server of this type, you will need to: 1. name the cofig file something like 'myserver.cfg' (don't call it 'server.cfg' as this doesn't sit well with the game for some reason). 2. Then place the completed cfg file in the COD 'Main' folder. 3. Go to 'Start New Server', and the only setting that needs to be made at this stage is Dedicated > No. server1.jpg 4. The game will start up, and once the default map, Bocage, has loaded, he will be in-game. 5. Now, drop down console and type: /exec myserver 6. The default maprotaiton map (details below) will now load, and all the settings in the config file will have taken effect. 7. You are now connected to a Activision server, and your IP details are given to everyone who wants to join. The major drawback to this type of server is that the server onlys lasts as long as you are on it. As soon as you leave the game the server shuts down as well. This is why lots of people prefer to run either Internet servers, or dedicated servers. Internet Server For this type of server do everything as above except, 3. set Dedicated > Internet. The server will start up and you will get something like this from the Linux desktop: server.jpg Now, to join the game you need a server client like All Seeing Eye or XFire. This is because you cannot run multiple instances of COD - it wont let you. But by using ASE or Xfire, you can search for his server via its listings, and join the game like everyone else. As I said the beauty of this type of server is that you can leave the server and do other things on your pc without shuting the server down for the other players still on it. Dedicated Servers For running a dedicated server (advanced users only), full and comprehensive details can be found in a PDF download which details setting up a dedicated server. Find it here: http://www.fkmod.com/freeman/CoD_Install.pdf Post the answers back to this info and I can start researching and get back to you with a Linux server setup.
