    Hello.

    I have started a racing team, and want to host game for my members (and others sometimes) And i have a couple of storage-servers and i would like to set up dedicated server with Race07, GTR Evo (and other simbin titles), rFactor and maybe other simulators. Do any of these games provide free dedicated server programs, or do i need to buy the games and install them on the server? Or can I just install it and run dedicated server mode, since the game is not really running will it need activation/license?

    Simbin usually provide Dedicated Server Program (For each of Race Series Games) which you can find on Steam.

    possibly not. I'd install steam on your server and log in as you. d/l the dedi from the tools tab if its not already there. then log out and log in as another user.

    with some of the shooters that there is a dedi tool for as long as one person installed the game anyone can run it.
