I am about to put a temporary server back up for use by MS for practice. I used to run one all the time but I don't play anymore and it's been awhile. I will be loading this remotely so what are the minimum files I need to install or copy to run a dedicated server? And can I do it without the install disks so I don't have to goto work to do it. I still have Descent loaded here at home so I can copy files from there. And, while I'm at it, what are people using to manage Descent servers remotely these days? Thanks in advance. (err, make that dedicated server in the topic)

You could always just investigate this yourself. Start out with the common install...then start up the server...then remove some files you think could be removed and start again...keep repeating this until the server crashes or doesn't start at all...you'll eventually find everything that is necessary just by elimination.
I got it up and running again a few weeks ago. Capm gave me a good list and it worked. I'll find the email later and post it. And of course I could investigate it myself but I figured someone here had to have done that before. Plus since I don't play it myself anymore I just wanted a quick and easy server install.
