Helpfull apps to help you run your game server



Keeping with the tradition of this site. What other tools do you use to keep your servers running.

I want to make this a sticky with links to any useful apps. programs or tools you may use.

I'll start:

FireDaemon freeware and paid versions

What Is It?
FireDaemon is a utility that allows you to install and run virtually any native Win32 application or script (eg. BAT/CMD, Perl, Java, Python, TCL/TK) as a Windows NT/2K/XP/2K3 service. FireDaemon features easy configuration (via GUI or XML), a low memory/CPU overhead, subprocess prioritization, custom environments, CPU binding plus monitoring and logging to the event log and on-disk log files


Autokick Free but could go commercial with extended features

What is it?

Autokick is a Windows based program that assists server administrators in managing the environment of their servers in order to help them provide a good gaming experience for players. It does this by allowing admins to set tolerance levels for player behavior. If the rules are violated, the admin can warn, kick or even ban players from the server.


RealVNC (VNC) free

What is it?

VNC stands for Virtual Network Computing. It is remote control software which allows you to view and interact with one computer (the "server") using a simple program (the "viewer") on another computer anywhere on the Internet. The two computers don't even have to be the same type, so for example you can use VNC to view an office Linux machine on your Windows PC at home. VNC is freely and publicly available and is in widespread active use by millions throughout industry, academia and privately.


Serv-U WinX $39.00

What is it?

serv-U is a FTP server you can install on your dedicated server. Much easier to use then FTP via IIS. also comes with a simple to setup interface and tray icon, to inform you when someone is connected to your FTP site. Used to upload cfg files as well as maps and mods.


Please add any other programs you use on your game servers. duplicate apps welcome. Not everyone likes VNC I prefer SSH or Terminal servers.

Well For Remote Admin I use Radmin which can be found here...
except the remote control of your server , this program has a file transfer interface , also it has a shut down-restart menu... if you want to reboot your server.

I would like to ask if there is a program like fire deamon which can be used in win9x enviroment.

That's all from me.

P.S My Server keeps crashing sometimes (not the machine just mohaa). don't know why. only when people are playing.
Is There A Difference if I use mohaa exe or Server exe???
For the moment I use Mohaa exe with the classic commands added to it's shortcut properties followed by a cfg file...

The server version does not need to launch any of the video libraries since it is basically a console application. Have not tried what you are doing, but seems to me the server version would be less likely to crash.
