Hello Everyone,
I read the other posts on setting a Decicated Call of Duty UO Server from home, but my only problem is I am unsure of what steps I need to do to get the server setup and installed. The server I have setup at home is:

Windows 2003 Enterprise
3.0ghz Xeon
1GB Ram
74 GB WD Raptor
Dynamic ADSL Internet, upload is usually around 550-560kbps. Advertisted Upload Speed is 768kbps.

I read alot of articles and guides online about how to setup up a server, but none specifically mentioned Windows 2003. It seemed like the more things I read the more I got confused. Do I have to do a full install to the C:\Program Files\Call of Duty for Cod and Cod UO with all recent patches and then create my own config file? Or do I have to just copy the Setup files off the all the CDs along with the patches to one folder and create a config file inside of that? About how many people could I host in a room? From some of the reading I did it seems to me with my connection I could host around 14 players. I have a D-Link DGL-4100 router, which I think I can figure out how to open the ports or configure it to work. If anyone has any good recommendations or knowledge in this area I would really appereciate any help or feedback. Thanks for your time... :tazz:

After you install the game, setting up a server is the same way you would with all windows os.



14 people max with sv_maxrate to 5000

12 max with sv_maxrate 6000

dont try putting your sv_maxrate to what the user in the .pdf states (25000) lol thats for 100mbit connections or greater on fiber optics or rented servers.

Thanks for the link, that is the guide I had been previously reading. I got kind of confused reading it all. I am going to try to install the fresh full version install of Cod UO on Windows 2003 with the 1.51 patches and setup a config file and see it I can get it up and running.

You get constant 550-560kbps upload, correct? If so your set.

Yes my upload is around those speeds when I speedtest at http://www.speakeasy.net/speedtest/ My router actually says its 640kbps.

Okay I tried to install COD and UO on Windows 2003, COD installed fine, but UO said that will only install on Pre Windows Operating Systems so I am stuck now. So what is my next step? Any ideas on how to get it installed on win 2003 ?

Okay,
I did a full\fresh install on my desktop pc of Call of Duty UO with all the patches. Then I loaded the entire folder to my Server PC. This worked! I created a config file but when I load up the server this is what I get:
