NetHack

Hardfought now hosts an online NetHack server, which offers a couple different versions of the original, or ‘vanilla’ game, as well as a handful of variants. At this page, you can find everything you need to know to successfully connect to and play on our server. You’ll also find useful information covering a wide variety of subjects, from where to go if you need assistance with a game, to specific how-to links, and other meaningful data.


How to connect:  start up the terminal of your choice (for Windows users, a very popular choice is PuTTY), and connect to nethack@hardfought.org via port 22 (SSH). Be sure to check the RSA public key fingerprint when connecting to ensure you’re where you’re supposed to be (2048 RSA 22:88:b9:45:ff:30:a3:8e:12:70:af:90:41:3d:5b:a8)

Connecting from a *nix terminal is straight-forward, you just type ‘ssh nethack@hardfought.org’ at the prompt. If you’re on Windows and are using PuTTY, there’s great how-to up on the NetHack Wiki – https://nethackwiki.com/wiki/PuTTY
