Dedicated Servers

How to setup a dedicated server

1.  Install "Conan Exiles Dedicated Server" found in your steam library tools.

2.  Copy in the yellow text below and edit the Server Name and Server Password Settings found in SteamLibrary\steamapps\common\Conan Exiles Dedicated Server\ConanSandbox\Saved\Config\WindowsServer\Engine.ini

[OnlineSubsystemSteam]
ServerName=YOUR_SERVER_NAME_HERE
ServerPassword=YOUR_DESIRED_PASSWORD_HERE

3.  Copy in the yellow text below and edit the In-game admin password found in SteamLibrary\steamapps\common\Conan Exiles Dedicated Server\ConanSandbox\Saved\Config\WindowsServer\ServerSettings.ini

[ServerSettings]
AdminPassword=YOUR_DESIRED_ADMIN_PASSWORD_HERE

4.  Running the server:  Navigate to SteamLibrary\steamapps\common\Conan Exiles Dedicated Server\ConanSandbox\Saved\Config\WindowsServer\ and run either the StartServer.bat or ConanSandboxServer.exe Click ok to ignore all the dll error messages and you're now running a dedicated Server!

NOTE: Currently if you try to start the dedicated server build from the steam client, you will get some error messages about steam DLLs. This is not the recommended way to start your server, but it should still work if you skip past the error messages.

By default it will listen on UDP ports 27015 and 7777. You might need to add an exception in your firewall to get the server to show up in the Steam server browserThe  bat file that can be used to start the server with details and logs - StartServer.bat
