./ninjamsrv configfilename.cfg
On Windows (after opening a command line, and going to the proper directory):
ninjamsrv configfilename.cfg

I open terminal and run the path of the file


But Terminal tells me this:

-bash: /ECL/eclninjamserver: is a directory
Fine. That's the directory where your Ninjam server lives, I suppose. You just need to add the program to start. Please try in Terminal:

./ninjamsrv configfilename.cfg

~/ECL/eclninjamserver/ninjamsrv configfilename.cfg
You did open "configfilename.cfg" in a text editor and changed whatever needed to be changed and saved that?

It could be configfilename.cfg has been saved (by you?) under a different filename. Ninjam.cfg, fi. To find that out:

cd ~/ECL/eclninjamserver/
ls -al
That will list everything in that directory. And you'll see the .cfg file.

Also, note that you need to forward a port in your local router. Your internet box. Port forwarding might be named differently, since you mention you've "opened" a port. That might look like:

forward 2049 ->
But your ip ( in the example) is dynamic, driven by the DHCP server in the router. It will change some day, to, fi. To do this reliably, you might consider setting up your PC with a static ip. That doesn't change and port forwarding will keep working.

I hope this makes a bit of sense. If not, ask.
