Please STICKY this

So there is no FAQ for setting up a server for AA 2.8.5 and AASM doesn't work.

So below is the start of this FAQ which I'll edit and add to to help those wanting to set up their servers.

From here:
viewtopic.php?f=27&t=3517&start=30

Instruction for playing as a server hoster:

edit your server.ini in your army systems directory, search for:

[AGP_Gameplay.AGP_GameMultiPlayer]
bRequireAuthorization=True -> change it to bRequireAuthorization=False

[IpDrv.GameSpyQR]
IP=178.196.24.42 -> you have to set your internet IP address
bNAT=True -> must be True

[DBAuth.DBAuth]
GameServerIP=178.196.24.42 -> must be you internet IP address

[DBAuth.AuthorizeServerRequestAdapter]
;ServerAuthUsername= -> set ; in front of
;ServerAuthPassword= -> set ; in front of

[DBAuth.Servers]
;CPSAuth=66.117.38.132
;MBS=66.117.38.132
;Auth=66.117.38.132
;STS=66.117.38.132

edit your RUNSERVER.bat and change it like this (set the map like you wish to play).
very important is - to change from GLOBAL to LAN:

server.exe LAN SFExtraction.aao log=server.log ini=server.ini

then run your RUNSERVER.BAT - and your server will start in LAN mode.
start ARMYOPS.EXE and select LAN to play. change in settings MBS-Browser to Gamespy!!
go to LAN and select your server with right mouse - choose to play as admin player (if you have the rights for - otherwise just start to play directly - or over the qtracker (see instructions for players). there you will see all the servers and player online now.
be informed, that changing your browser to GAMESPY - you have to open in your firewall the port 7778 - very important, cause gamspy talks over this port.
i am not sure yet, but to be on save side, start for the server to be listed in qtracker, following application:

qtuplink (download it also from http://www.qtracker.com )
configure it like this:

Game type: America's Army: Operations
Query port: 7778
Region: your region

then the status right below should change to ACTIVE

have fun and enjoy many years AA2

If any problems, post it or mail to: tuechli@gmail.com

You will have to open the port on your modem to play.

If you don't open ports on your router it won't work. The guide link is brilliant at helping you to set up your router. If your router is not listed try a close match.
