How to Quickly Find and Join Your Left 4 Dead Server
This article will show you how you can easily join your Left 4 Dead dedicated server.
Step one should be to make sure your server is started and online!
Locate the IP address or hostname of Your Server
Find the Hostname of your server at the top of your Instance page on your Nodecraft Control Panel.
You can also use the numerical IP address of your Nodecraft Server near the bottom of the Overview page on the left hand side of your Panel.
Enable the Developer Console
In order to connect to your server from your Left 4 Dead client, make sure that the Developer Console is enabled. In your Left 4 Dead client, you can do so by going to the Options menu, then Keyboard/Mouse settings.
Connect to your Server
To connect to your server, open the Developer Console in your game client using the tilde key
~ on your keyboard (typically found directly beneath the
esc key). Then, use the
connect command to enter your server, like so:
connect server-address. In the example shown in the screenshots below, the command was:
connect nodecraft-server-l4d.nodecraft.games. You will then be connected to your Left 4 Dead server!
