Option #2: Creating an Arma Reforger Server From Your Home Computer or Dedicated Server

Server Requirements

Windows 7, 8, 8.1, Server 2016, Server 2019 & 64-Bit

Quad Core processor (requires up to 2 full cores)

Up to 19GB memory (currently usage depends on the FPS)

5GB disk space (install folder)

Step 1: Fetching Game Server files

The best method to get dedicated server game files is via the dedicated server depot on Steam via SteamCMD.

  1. Create a folder where you wish to store your Arma Reforger game server hosting files
  2. Inside of the folder, place the newly downloading SteamCMD.exe file
  3. Create a batch file named ArmaInstall.bat
  4. Place the following code in this batch file:
@echo off
start "" C:\Users\UserName\Desktop\ArmaReforger\steamcmd\steamcmd.exe +login anonymous anonymous +force_install_dir C:\Users\UserName\Desktop\ArmaReforger +app_update 1874900 +quit
  1. Right-click ArmaInstall.bat and Run as Administrator
  2. Your game server files should be completely downloaded by now

Step 2: Setting up an Arma Reforger Dedicated Server

  1. Create a batch file named StarServer.bat in your newly created Arma Reforger server folder from step 1
  2. Place the following code in this batch file:
cd C:\Users\UserName\Desktop\ArmaReforger\
start /wait /REALTIME ArmaReforgerServer.exe -config "C:\Users\UserName\Desktop\ArmaReforger\admin\server.json" -profile "C:\Users\UserName\Desktop\ArmaReforger\saves"

Step 3: Port Forwarding

Add an incoming rule to your Windows Firewall to allow TCP/UDP port (game port) 27015, (Steam query port) 27016(or whichever ports you decide to use)

You may additionally need to add a forwarding rule to your network router. You can use to read how to do this.
