How to create an Astroneer dedicated server

  1. Check the system requirements

    To play Astroneer, you’ll need a 64-bit operating system and processor. The OS should be Windows 7, 8 or 10, but you can also run it on Linux using . For the best experience, we recommend at least 8GB RAM and a minimum disk space of 4GB. You should also have a quad core processor and reliable broadband internet connection of at least 100 MB/s.
     

  2. Choose a dedicated server

    Our dedicated gaming servers come in two flavours – Game-1 and Game-2. Each option has different processors and storage configurations. We recommend Game-1 for multiplayer sessions with friends and Game-2 for larger gatherings, such as eSports competitions.
    After you have selected a dedicated server, you can choose an operating system (we offer Windows and multiple Linux distributions) and a datacentre location close to your players. You can then install and configure your server using the OVHcloud Control Panel.
     

  3. Connect your Astroneer dedicated server

    Once your server is up-and-running, you’ll need to connect it to Astroneer. This can be complicated and requires some patience! You can either link your server and game manually or deploy the for a faster, stress-free experience.

    If you prefer the manual route, here are the basic steps:

    •    Download and install
    •    Extract the config files and run through the command lines
    •    To set your port and IP address, navigate to the server files folder and modify Engine.ini and AstroServerSettings.ini. Visit for full instructions.
    •    In your firewall settings, ensure that UDP ports 88, 500, 3074, 3544, 4500 & 8777 are open, alongside TCP ports 3074 & 8777.
    •    Launch the server and start playing!

    Although our dedicated Game servers come with 500 GB of storage as standard, we always recommend adding more to ensure there’s space to save and backup your games, as well as add mods, texture packs and other customisations.

    Your Astroneer dedicated server comes pre-configured with a public IPv4 and IPv6 address. To be visible on the list of Astroneer servers, you can order more IP addresses (maximum 256 per machine). Additional IPs can also minimise downtime and lag if the server exceeds capacity. Because these IPs can be based in other countries, you can extend your global reach and ensure consistent performance for all players.

FAQs

What is a dedicated server?

There are three types of servers – shared, dedicated and virtual private servers (VPS). A dedicated server provides access to an entire physical machine. As it isn’t shared with anyone else, a dedicated server offers higher performance and privacy than shared servers and VPS hosting. Other benefits include faster processing speeds, higher bandwidth and greater control over the environment.

We offer a wide range of dedicated servers for gaming, business, reseller and personal use. To host games like Astroneer, we recommend our Game dedicated servers or VPS hosting solutions.

What is Anti-DDoS Protection?

A distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attack is a malicious attempt to take a server or network service offline. During an attack, the target is bombarded with fake, illegitimate traffic to overwhelm the service and render it unavailable. For businesses, DDoS attacks can cause financial and brand damage. If you are hosting a game server, such attacks can disrupt your multiplayer events or take them offline.

To prevent DDoS attacks, all OVHcloud solutions contain Anti-DDoS Protection as standard, at no extra cost. This unique protection blends hardware, edge firewalls, backbone and datacentre capabilities to mitigate attacks up to 1.3 Tbit/s in size.
