Hosting SuperTuxKart server

Hi,

How do I host a SuperTuxKart server? By that I mean, not simply hosting a multiplayer game room, but actually lending your bandwidth to allow others to connect to online games more quickly?

Unfortunately I don't see anything on the Community page explaining how to allow your computer to be used as a server. So I decided to ask in here.

Thanks so much for your help!

It will not "allow others to connect to online games more quickly" though unless your server location is interesting

Thanks Benau! Is it ok if I only keep my computer running for a few hours at a time? I'm a bit nervous about leaving it on 24/7, because I don't want to wear it out.

I don't think it will do anything good to stk users if server just up for few hours, sorry about that...

Ok, thanks. I think what I'll do is buy an inexpensive computer to use as the server. Thanks for your help!
