Installing and Launching
To install the dedicated server application, go to the “Library” tab in Steam and select “Tools”. Look for “Sons Of The Forest Dedicated Server” and install it. If launching from Steam doesn’t work, try launching the application directly from the executable or a shortcut.
You also have the option of downloading the tool through SteamCMD if you want to avoid logging into Steam.
Note: To run the server silently in the background, launch the server with the command line parameter “-batchmode”.
