DESCRIPTION

If you want to get your gameserver dynamically added/removed from your master-server, you’ll have to add an entry into the file woncomm.lst. This file is located within the gameservers mod directory (eg. valve, cstrike, tfc...).
There might be no woncomm.lst in a mods directory, but that doesnt really matter. You can either copy the one found in the valve directory, or just leave it there and edit it. If Half-Life does not find a woncomm.lst in the mod’s directory, it defaults to using the one found in the valve directory.

After editing your woncomm.lst, it’s required to restart your gameserver for the changes to take effect. To verify, your gameserver is really sending heartbeats to your master, you can go to the Half-Life console and enter ’setmaster’ - respectivly ’rcon setmaster’.
You should now get a lists of the currently configured master-servers. You can also add a master-server, while half-life is running. This is performed with ’setmaster add ip port’ - where ip is your master server’s ip-address (eg. 194.209.69.205) and port is it’s port-number (normally 27010).

NOTE: Configuration changes made with the setmaster command only remain active till next gameserver shutdown. Therefore, you’ll have to edit your woncomm.lst anyway.

EXAMPLES

An example woncomm.lst is provided within the examples directory of the source distribution. However, here’s a short example of the master section:

        Master
        {

your.server.com:27010 
                half-life.east.won.net:27010
                half-life.west.won.net:27010
                half-life.central.won.net:27010 
        }
