Hey I have been thinking a while about doing this i need serious reply s and help.The only reason I haven't got and setup a sever box it because of electricity right?well we might be getting solar in the weeks to come. I have a close family member that offered me a sever box to start of with its decent, my main worrie would be is drop outs its has 2 power supply so that all good. The cost of it isent cheap even though its of a family member they still cant just give it away. I want to earn extra money.so i think the sever box may be the go? could i have some information about runing your own sever box should I be advertised and get people to run of my sever im going to need to cover the cost. I have some time of how can I start first I need to learn about severs. Thankyou.

What do you plan on doing with this server box?

Also what are the specs, and can you provide a model number?

That server is way more then what is required for Minecraft. What kind of bandwidth will you have for this, and to run a server you may need a Business ISP Account.

The business account will allow you to control the ports that are open for use via your ISP Provided router. Some ISP's do not allow for servers to be ran on residential accounts especially if they are for profit. Also what did you mean by your private message to me? Server info sheet?

i have read only a quarter. And up to Port forwarding sounds very risky if i get this wrong can 'hackers' can through the router then into details.

Basiclly what i understand it that you run software you open ports to run the sever and alot of commands.

That is for posting questions about the use of the various operating systems if you have a question on say installing Linux then the Linux section of BC will be your best bet.

All the others are for quick reference.
