A public server allows one to play NetHack or a variant in a shared space using telnet where one can encounter other people's bones and see scores in the server's scorelist. You may also choose to watch someone's game that is in progress.

Setting up your own server Edit

A user has suggested improving this page or section as follows:

"How to setup your own server?"

There are several ways to manage your public NetHack server, but the most common is to use dgamelaunch, which manages user accounts and runs the NetHack processes in a chroot jail when a user telnets into the server.


For FreeBSD, there is a work-in-progress document describing how to set up a Nethack server with dgamelaunch, and also provides patches to make auto-login work with FreeBSD telnetd.
