starts an http server that acts as a control panel for the
server. The server listens on port 8000 by default.
The url for the control panel is
where 0xN is a random hex number (acts as minimal
protection). This url is printed when the server starts. You
can start and view games and kill the server from this
panel. The control panel also allows you to type in the
address of a server to connect to, the script will then open
a client to that server. The http server also servers java
applet clients for those players who wish to use one.
When a game is
started the script opens a port for the game server. This
port can then be connected to by a client. Clients
autodetect servers running on the local network with UDP
ping on port 8056.
The client forms a tcp connection to the server. Or, when
using the metaserver, the server forms a connection to the
client. If this fails, the client and server try a
simultaneous SYN connect. This sometimes works if the server
and client are behind firewalls. The server then tries to
transmit the data over udp. If it gets no response from the
client it will fall back to the existing tcp connection.
N, --begin N, --start
Start at board (level) number
N. The default is 1. See also the -s
Restart the server at the end
of the game. Normally the server quits after a certain
period of inactivity. This is useful when used with the
-m option to make a public server that is available
for a long time.
Limit number of lives to
N. If this option is not specified the number of
lives will be infinite.
Register server with the
Metaserver (currently) at codespeak.net:8050.
This makes your server visible to everybody, and also
facilitates joining through a fascistic firewall.
TYPE=N Sets default listening ports. If
type is LISTEN , sets the game server port to
N. The game server port is chosen randomly by
default. If the type is HTTP , sets the http server
port to N. The http server port defaults to
8000. Another port will be chosen if none was
specified and 8000 is already in use. The server also
listens to UDP ping on port 8056.
Increase board number with
N when a board is completed. Defaults to 1. see also
the -b option.
The server outputs helpful debug information concerning the http
and game servers.
