Help needed setting up a TGH server

  1. Hi I wonder if any of the admins could help me, I just got a gtr-evo server from http://www.thegamehoster.net/ and not a clue on how to set it up, TGH are not being very helpfull atm. :struggle:

    They tell me that I can't controll the server on the fly and anything I need doing ie.. track change mod added ect! has to be done by them and I will have to wait 24hours, I've never had this with any other server company covering many other games?

    I'm sure there was a way with *Remote Desktop Connection* as a member of my team used it for his race server with them.

    I would be very greatfull for any help
    Many thanks
    Me :)

    Hi Mat, there is a Remote Desktop way to administrate the server, but if you don't have any connection data I can't tell you how to do it more than go to "Remote Desktop" on windows, put the address, user and password there and join.

    I will contact TGH and ask them what is happening, will come back to you as soon as possible.

    Cya!.

    I've had an email with FTP & pass ect?
     
  4. Matt, The Game Hoster servers are superb, you will be happy with it. :)

    Hi!

    It's seems they are not setting up remote desktop for the small servers (your's is 6 slots right?) so they do the management via the support in this URL:

    http://support.thegamehoster.net/

    I understand that is not the best option and I told them, so if you feel it doesn't fit for you I think you should tell them via the support chat in the link above and ask for a better solution.

    If you can't find a solution don't doubt in come back to me.

    Cya!.
     
  7. Thanks for all the help man, I've just got done talking to them, they are going to setup the remote desktop for us, seems others look liberties with the service so they pulled it down, But all should be golden now, was just a case of prooving we can be trusted, Not hard as all my members are in there 30's or near the age of death lol...

    Once again thank you very much for all the help it's been appreciated :)

    Thanks to you, TGH supported this series (STC) since the first day, imagine a Spanish guy mailing to a Dutch business and telling them he needs a free dedicated server to organise a championship offering promotion in exchange, 99.9% of companies will say no way... they just said YES, IMHO this says a lot of good things about the company, so I just try to help them as much as I can, and as simracer I know we need very dynamic management for our servers...

    Glad you have remote desktop, that's a propper server now :)

    Cya!.
