Rent your own CryoFall server now at 4Netplayers.com

If you want to protect your server from unauthorised access, you have two options for CryoFall.
You can set your server to private. Then it will no longer be listed ingame in the server browser.
Then only players who know the IP address of the server can join.
Or you can add players to a whitelist.
Of course, you can also combine both methods.
We will explain both options to you.

Set server private

To make your server private, your configuration must be in Advanced Mode.
Then click in the configuration on the left on SettingsServer.xml.
Exchange 1 in the following line with 0

<is_public_server>1</is_public_server>

Then click on Save.
Restart your server.
From now on, only players who know either the IP address or the server public GUID can connect to the server.
You can find the Server public GUID in the SettingsServer.xml' under

<server_public_guid>YourPublicGUID</server_public_guid>

Whitelist

In order for you to create a whitelist, it is necessary that you are an admin on your server.
How you can become an admin, we describe HERE.
After you are connected to your server, type in the following in the console:
/mod.whiteList.add Player
Replace Player with the name of the player you want to add to the whitelist.
Repeat this entry for each player you want to add to the whitelist.
Then enter the following in the console:
/mod.whiteList.enable 1
The whitelist is now enabled.
Tip: to remove players from the whitelist, enter the following in the console:
/mod.whitelist.remove Player
Replace Player with the name of the player you want to remove.
