How to protect a FiveM game Server with a SecureAttack DDoS Protection

This tutorial will explain how to setup and configure a DDoS protected FiveM server. This guide assumes you have already running and access to your FiveM server you wish to protect.

Step 1: Backend Setup

Setup FiveM on your server, this server will be from here on referred to as the "backend server". On the backend server you may use whichever Operating System you are most familiar with, however if unsure we recommend Centos Linux.

Please ensure that the service is running and connectible on the backend server.

Step 2: Purchase DDoS Protection Service

Pick a suitable package from the FiveM DDoS protection page.

During the purchase process you will be asked to:

 1. Name your service (important if you plan to have many).

 2. Select the IPs and Ports you wish to protect.

You will receive an E-mail in about 3 ~ 5 hours with your new Filtered IP and also it will appear in your Client area in FiveM Service Section.

FiveM DDoS Protection Service, SecureAttack.com

Step 3: Setup and configuration

After receiving you new Filtered IP, it's Time to Configure your backend Server.

1. Go to https://keymaster.fivem.net/ and generate a new key for your new Filtered IP.

2. Now, Let's Edit Server.cfg file.

# Only change the IP if you're using a server with multiple network interfaces, otherwise change the port only.
endpoint_add_tcp "0.0.0.0:30120"
endpoint_add_udp "0.0.0.0:30120"

# These resources will start by default.
ensure mapmanager
ensure chat
ensure spawnmanager
ensure sessionmanager
ensure fivem
ensure hardcap
ensure rconlog
ensure scoreboard

sv_scriptHookAllowed 0

# Set your server's hostname
sv_hostname "FXServer, but unconfigured"

set temp_convar "hey world!"

add_ace group.admin command allow # allow all commands
add_ace group.admin command.quit deny # but don't allow quit
add_principal identifier.fivem:1 group.admin # add the admin to the group

sv_endpointprivacy true

onesync_enabled true

sv_maxclients 32

set steam_webApiKey ""

# License key for your server (https://keymaster.fivem.net)
sv_licenseKey changeme​

Replace  "changeme​" with your new key.

Step 4: Finish & Test

Once all steps are completed you should be able to connect to your service on your Filtered IP with the Direct Connect.

Note: If you (or your network provider) run a firewall either ensure the Backend Communication address (unless otherwise specified, your filtered IP) is whitelisted or that the firewall is disabled.

Have Fun!
