Our colo is only 1U at the moment, and its primary purpose is running
apache/php/mysql, hence our choice of OpenBSD for security reasons. We
were going to run a game server for value added fun if it wouldn't
interfere too much with the primary function of webhosting.
I'm getting conflicting signals from the venerable listmembers. I guess
we'll try it. If it doesn't work, or eats too many CPU cycles, then
Thanks for the replies.
P.S. Why do I get all the messages from this list out of order?

I _HIGHLY_ recommend you stick to the native platform for game servers.
There is little need for the 'secure by default' position of OpenBSD on
something as trivial as a game server, and you will avoid a large number
of emulation gotchas and bugs. It's really not worth it.

Hello there. First post.
We would like to run a dedicated game server on our OpenBSD 3.6 server.
Some game companies (id, Valve, Bioware) support Linux with dedicated
server binaries, but I've never seen one for *BSD. Is there a way to
make the Linux servers for Neverwinter Nights, UT2004, or Half-Life 2
run on OpenBSD?
