Chapter 2. Connecting to a Server

Atlantik requires a game server to connect to. If you have an Internet connection, you can request a list of public Internet servers and you will not require additional software. If you want to play Atlantik locally, on a LAN or on a private Internet server, you can enter the hostname and port to connect to. In this case, you will need the monopd server software installed and running on the host you are connecting to.

If you have problems connecting to a server, the following troubleshoot notes might help you:

  • Try another server.

  • Check your firewall and masquerading settings. Restrictions might be in place preventing you from connecting to servers or receiving reply traffic. By default, monopd servers use TCP port 1234. If you are not sure, contact your system administrator.
