3 servers on my IP??

Question

So I have 3 servers, including mine, on the same IP/port. I asked my host about it and they said it was just an arma bug. Yet I can connect to these other 2 servers. Is this a bug, or is my host hosting 3 servers on the same IP/port?

If they were on the same IP and port as you then you wouldn't be able to join them. Its impossible to have two processes sharing the same port.

If you host a gameserver, there could be several servers on one machine. Thats nothing bad - thats common.

I don't think your host knows what they are talking about. I've never seen that before.

classic GSP /tcadmin just buy a dedi and stack the crap out of them with tcadmin servers then rip people off. seriously buying a dedicated server is so much more efficient then going to a GSP

@QGS is absolutely correct; you can't host a server on the same port (default: 2302). You can either change the port to something else (e.g. 2312. 2322) or assign a different IP address to it. The simplest way to change this is by editing your launch parameters to include the port that you want to use.

Keep in mind though that if you change the port your server is running on that you must also change the RCON port (@exileserver/config.cfg) to the same thing. You must also assign each server its own database (exile1, exile2) as I do not believe that Exile supports the use of table prefixes.

To recap: Change the port in your launch parameters (-Port=2303, for example), change the RCON port in @exileserver/config.cfg to the same thing, and create another database for that server to you in MySQL.

I had it once, that a arma 2 server listened 3 times on one port...because the process could not be stopped and it was running three times in the background. Well you cant check on stuff like this with a gameserver. :)

It is important to note, that you should always separate the ports by increments of 10. I read this in a BIS thread somewhere... looking for that thread now.

BI forum reference

If you are running multiple servers,   would suggest the following format

SERVER 1
2302 UDP (gameport + VON)
2303 UDP (STEAM query port)
2304 UDP (STEAM master port)
2305 UDP (VON reserved port but not used atm.)
so open ports 2302-2305
and leave at least 10 ports between the next server set

SERVER 2
2312 UDP (gameport + VON)
2313 UDP (STEAM query port)
2314 UDP (STEAM master port)
2315 UDP (VON reserved port but not used atm.)
so open ports 2312-2315
and leave at least 10 ports between the next 3rd server set etc.
