Just went down, sorry about that

Now if you want to drive me an hour to my parent's house so I can turn it back on, I would be glad to Razz

There is a thread called LINKS which has a link to the server including it's online status

I expect to be back home Saturday night so I'll get it back on then

ok if you need help just ask, there's also lots of information on the pyspades wiki (I reccomend using pyspades even though its a little more complicated)

Well the first thing is that you might have to set up port forwarding. You don't have to do this if your house does not have a network, instead just one computer connected directly to the internet.

To set it up, you will have to access your router settings. Usually this can be done by typing 192.168.1.1 in your browser: On my network it is 10.0.0.1 however. If that doesn't work open command prompt and type in "ipconfig" ... this will give you various ip information:
(Click on "Spoiler" to view image)
Spoiler:
 
Enter the Default Gateway into your browser. Now you will need to enter a login and password. Often, people who aren't computer wiz's will just leave it at the defaults. So try different combinations of "admin", "password", and "administrator", or try just pressing enter. Or you could try going to http://www.routerpasswords.com/ or you could ask whoever set up your router Razz (But I know parents are not just going to let their kids mess with the network settings so watch out)

Once you get into your router, there should be a section called "port forwarding." You need to go there and make port 32887 forward to your computer. If you didn't do the command prompt thing yet, do it now. The number listed here after "IP Address" is your computer's address on your home network (rather than the one the internet uses to locate your network - this is why hosting won't work without forwarding on a network, the game tries to connect to the router which is not actually running the game). So make a UDP port forward with port 32887 and ip address of your computer.

After you have done that, all you need to do to run a basic server is click on server.exe and type in the settings it asks for.

Keep in mind that a computer running a server should be directly connected with an ethernet cord - wireless will probably be super laggy. If you have both, use the IP under "Local Area Network" rather than "Wireless Network" from ipconfig. Also it's preferable that you play on a separate computer than the server one, although if your computer is powerful enough it might be okay.

Server.exe is the vanilla AoS server created by Ben, which has only the most basic features. Pyspades added lots of features like squads and airstrikes - most of the public servers now use pyspades. Even without airstrikes it has stuff like the ability to log in as an administrator from inside the game, view your kill streaks and k/d ratio, and so on. Once you have successfully run a vanilla server you should go download pyspades and start learning how to edit the config file.

There's also a tutorial on the AoS Wiki

It would be awesome to have a host in a different part of the world, since mine will be laggy for anyone far away from US East
