fceux-net-server [options]


This manual page documents briefly the fceux-net-server command.

fceux-net-server is the game server for multiplayer use of the FCE Ultra family of NES emulators. This server will first look in /etc/fceux-server.conf for options. If that file does not exist, it will use the defaults given here. Any argument given directly will override any default values.


These programs follow the usual GNU command line syntax, with long options starting with two dashes (`-'). A summary of options is included below.

-t, --timeout
