IP Address Configuration

How LinuxGSM handles IP addresses

Make sure you understand basic IP addressing.

By default, LinuxGSM will use the meta-address. This behavior will allow the game server to bind to all interfaces and allow LinuxGSM to query all available IP addresses. If there are multiple IP addresses available, details will display

Internet IP: LinuxGSM will try to gather the server's internet IP address to be shown in details.

Specific IP: If a specific IP address needs to be set it can be done using the ip setting in the LinuxGSM or game server config files. Depending upon the game server this will allow it to bind to a specific IP address.

Display IP: If you want to change the IP address displayed in alerts you can use the displayip.
