Tip of the Day: Easily Start a Dedicated Urban Terror Server

Here is an example for starting a dedicated Urban Terror server:

/usr/local/games/ioquake3/ioq3ded.i386 +set fs_game q3ut4 +set dedicated 2 +set net_IP <IP> +set net_port 27960 +set com_hunkmegs 256 +set sv_maxclients 12 +exec server.cfg

Don't forget to replace <IP> with the machine's IP. You will also have to configure your server.cfg file (more details in the official documentation, here). Once everything is in place the server should be listed in the in-game Internet server browser.

This is a bit hard to follow and is it for Quake 3 not Urban Terror

It might just be me so don't let me put other people off but this didn't work for me

Also why do you need to specify the clients because all that should be entered in your server.cfg file

the tutorial IS for UT4, but it uses the ioQuake3Arena binary. using the ioUrTded.i386 binary does exactly the same after setting the default game type to UT4.

Does this still work? I've followed the official UrT instructions to the point, and I get "Permission denied".
