The server is configured to use the EQEmu Public Loginserver
You can also install a local loginserver for LAN play
First you will need to download the starter files that will kick off the installation process
2. Once you have the files downloaded, you need to make a folder somewhere that you would like your server to reside, the place I chose is C:\EQEmuServer
3. Extract the files inside eqemu_installer_files.zip to this folder
4. Once extracted, right click eqemu_install.bat and "Run as Administrator", from this point on the entire install will be automated and run on its own, this is assuming you have an internet connection so the installer can pull down all of the necessary server assets
User: root (Doesn't allow remote connections)
Map files (maps/)
Opcode files (patch_*.conf)
LUA Modules (lua_modules/)
Pre-requisite .dll files (lua511.dll, zlib1.dll, libmysql.dll)
PEQ Database Downloaded and automatically updated, database created as name: "peq"
Windows Firewall rules added
Ports 9000, 7000-7500
When the installation process is done running, you will see "press any key to continue" once the final step of adding firewall rules has been complete that's when everything should be installed and ready to go.
Change your server name in eqemu_config.json, shortname/longname is currently set to:
Akka's Server Installer (Change Name)
At this point you can use:
t_start_server.bat to start the server
t_stop_server.bat to stop the server
You are good to go!
The windows installer pulls down pre-compiled Loginserver binaries.
The server installer is configured to connect to the both the EQEmu Public loginserver and the local loginserver (that you may or may not use).
You can use both methods of logging into your server (how you use your server is up to you!).
Many server operators choose to keep things simple by only using the public login server.
For information regarding the configuration and operation of a local Loginserver, please refer to the documentation in the Loginserver Space.
Be sure to adjust the IP address to the IP address of your loginserver on your local network.
Once you have configured your login server, restart your world server using t_start_server_with_login_server and you should be good to go!
Connect using your game client and you should see the server select screen:
