Finally! for all of us who always wanted to host a NO-CD server, here is how:
Prerequisites: Have installed Arma 2+OA, if not done then look at this guides:
0. Don't skip Prerequisites! To host a server you need a working client, look above.
1. Download the server pack: DayZ 1.7.3 Bliss Private Server
2. Extract all files and folders in your ArmA 2 Combined Operations folder
3. Run dayz_server_setup.bat with Administrator mode and follow the instructions.
4. After the setup, start the server with dayz_server.bat
5. Get in game-> multiplayer ->LAN/Internet to play-> your server name.
Do i need to open a port so players can enter?
Yes you do, first you have to open the port 2302 both UDP and TCP on your windows firewall.
Also you need to open (forward) the same port on your router.
It says "Invalid CD-Key" whenever me or someone joins my server!?
Block UDP port 29910 using your firewall or router.
What beta uses this server?
Only players that have that beta installed (or superior) will be able to play on this server.
How to change the default server name?
After installing the server, run "dayz_server_setup.bat" type option 6, press enter.
On the config.cfg file edit the parameter "hostname".
How do i change the Admin password?
Run "dayz_server_setup.bat" type option 6, press enter.
On the config.cfg file edit the parameter "passwordAdmin".
How do i kick other player from the game?
Inside the game type: #login yourpass.
and press enter, this will grant you the Admin status.
now press P to see the players list, select a player and click "kick".
How do i change game time?
I'm looking for a best way to achieve this but for now, changing the time zone of your computer to one that have the desired game time (Daytime/Nighttime) before starting the server will do for now.
How can i spawn vehicles on the server?
Run "dayz_server_setup.bat" type option 4, press enter, and press Ok on the window that pops-up.
Then return to the menu and press 3 enter, then 2 enter, type the number of the mission and then select the number of vehicles, max is 52.
