Cracked BF2 Dedicated Server - Linux

This tutorial will show you how to install the Battlefield 2 Dedicated Server on Linux and disable the server from checking CD Keys ;)
If you already have a server set up, you can skip down a bit to the iptables part.

These first steps will install the server just like you would normally.

First, you'll have to download the latest v1.5 server installer:


Make the file executable:

chmod +x ./

Install the server:


Accept both agreements and specify an install directory.

These next steps will disable CD-Key checks!

If you don't already have iptables, install it (Ubuntu method):

apt-get install iptables

Use iptables to block the ports used to check for legit CD-Keys:

iptables -A INPUT -m udp -p udp --sport 29910 -s 0/0 -j DROP
iptables -A INPUT -m udp -p udp --sport 139 -s 0/0 -j DROP
iptables -A INPUT -m tcp -p tcp --sport 29910 -s 0/0 -j DROP
iptables -A INPUT -m tcp -p tcp --sport 1433 -s 0/0 -j DROP
iptables -A INPUT -m tcp -p tcp --sport 1434 -s 0/0 -j DROP
iptables -A INPUT -m tcp -p tcp --sport 139 -s 0/0 -j DROP

Almost done!
These next steps will edit your server's name that shows up in the server browser.
Go to server install dir then:

nano ./mods/bf2/settings/serversettings.con

Set sv.serverName to your desired server name.
Set sv.internet to 1 if this is a public, internet server.
Set sv.welcomeMessage to your desired welcome message.
Set sv.punkBuster to 1 if you want PunkBuster enabled. (A good idea.)

Congratulations! You now have a Cracked BF2 Server ready!
To run your server, go to your BF2 server's root and:

but the 2nd connect : Success and ppl can play.

my server cracked with iptables block for legit cdkey check, and with Punkbuster ON.
