Post tutorial RSS Setting up a dedicated server for Lost and Dead

This guide will show you how to set up a dedicated server for Lost and Dead.

Posted by on - Basic Server Tools

Before you begin:

Make sure you have port forwarded your router to the right ports so people can connect to your server.

If you don't know what ports to forward to, they are:

  1. 27015 UDP (game transmission, pings)
  2. 27015 TCP (RCON)
  3. 27020 UDP (HLTV transmission)
  4. 26900 UDP (VAC service) -- automatically increments if used in case of additional server processes

Step 1: Install Half-Life Dedicated Server

(if you already have it installed, skip this step.)

Hover your mouse over LIBRARY in Steam and go to TOOLS.


Now, find Half-Life Dedicated Server, and double-click it to install.

Step 2: Set up the server

Now you need to set up the server. Open Half-Life Dedicated Server. Click on Game, then find Lost and Dead.


Now, select the map, network, max players, UDP Port is 27015, and RCON Password.

(recommended) - turn on VAC (Valve Anti-Cheat)

Now, you can start the server and you're ready to play.

Changing the level

Go to the console tab, and type:

changelevel **MAPNAME**
