I am trying to create a game server for the game 7 Days to Die but I am running into a problem. This is the file I was told to use when starting the server.
rem rem Starts a dedicated server rem rem -quit, -batchmode, -nographics: Unity commands rem -configfile : Allows server settings to be set up in an xml config file. Use no path if in same dir or full path. rem -dedicated : Has to be the last option to start the dedicated server. start 7DaysToDie -quit -batchmode -nographics -configfile=serverconfig.xml -dedicated REM wait until game started timeout 10 REM connect to the service interface. use 'shutdown' to stop the server if exist "Tools/bin/putty.exe" ( "Tools/bin/putty.exe" -telnet localhost 8081 ) else ( telnet localhost 8081 ) pause
I have looked online but no one seems to know the solution to the problem I am having. From what I understand I want to use the telnet protocol to connect to localhost on port 8081. I get the error "Could not open connection to the host, on port 8081". I have enabled the telnet client feature in windows 7. I also read online that I had to enable the telnet service in services.msc but I do not see the telnet service there. Why is the connection failing?
