Dedicated Server problems


I’m running ubuntu. I followed the guide here step by step.

I installed all repo that was missing, I’m not running the server as root either. I keep getting this core dumped error. Not sure what it means but each time i try and launch the server it send back all this info. Perhaps someone can tell me what it means?

Did you make sure to copy the dependencies?

Linux: Copy linux64/ into towerunite/Tower/Binaries/Linux

I deleted my machine to try and different os. I will try again on Ubuntu and post an update after i transfer the dependencies. I guess i must of skipped the part where it said to do that …

I should update in 30 minutes after i install all the missing dependencies.

Ok so the server is up but when i join i keep getting this.

This is the only error i see at the launch of the server.
[2017.11.14-22.22.32:480][ 0]LogTemp:Error: [STEAM] ISteamApps Interface Not Loaded

always losing connection to the host.

Have you made sure you’ve forwarded all the required ports?

Im running on a virtual machine, all the ports are open.

Make sure the virtual machine isn’t configured to use localhost, but instead has it’s own local ip address separate from the host machine (assuming your running it on your local computer).

I have a server with digitalocean and im trying to connect via my pc. Not entirely sure what you meant.

Ah, your previous post was rather vague.

The ISteamApps Interface Not Loaded shouldn’t be an issue.

I don’t know what would be causing a timeout other than a firewall blocking the connection.

Hmm this is weird because i’ve hosted other game servers with them and never had issues with ports. I can probably message them to see if they have anything blocking it.

Alright here are my networking settings.

I messaged My provider this is what he told me.

Hey there, thanks for reaching out to us!

We aren’t blocking any of those ports on our end by default. We do block IPv6 SMTP (Ports 25, 465, 587), but outside that we don’t have many limitations on the networking side.

Are you the only one noticing a timeout to the server, or were others noticing that as well? If others aren’t noticing the issue, it sounds like there may be general connectivity issues between you and the Droplet. If others were experiencing the issue, I’d recommend further investigating the game server / logs for more information on why it is timing out requests.

If you have any other questions or need anything else, just write back in and let us know! Thank you for being a DigitalOcean customer, we are here to assist you 24/7. :slight_smile:

Server is running but you cannot connect(Host drops the connect/timesout)
Im running on an aptitude based os(Ubuntu) 1cpu 2gb ram 20gbs hdd.
I’ve hit a dead end no idea what to do next… I followed the tutorial step by step.

Still need to figure this out
