Neverwinter Nights Stand Alone Dedicated Server The Neverwinter Nights dedicated server is an application that hosts a Neverwinter Nights game but does not run the game client interface. You may want to use the dedicated server if you want to host a game but you don't intend to play in that game for the entire duration. Another reason to use the dedicated server would be that you have two computers and want to share the processing load between them one computer can run the dedicated server and the other one connects to it from the normal Neverwinter Nights game client. Please note that you can also start a server from within the game client or the DM client. The dedicated server does not 'use up' your CD key.

The dedicated server or stand-alone server , when installed without the game is a separate server program that can be used to host modules for multiplayer play without running the game client hence without the overhead of drawing graphics. It is included in each installation of Neverwinter Nights , and BioWare had also offered it for download for use on a computer without the game installed. The software is available for the three platforms on which the game runs: Windows , Linux , and Macintosh. Oddly, the "full" install of the stand-alone server does not include the expansion campaigns, but the server update does. Those looking to host an expansion campaign with a stand-alone server should install the update on top of the "full" install to get those modules even though nothing else will be truly updated.
