I'm waiting until I'll be able to install gobby via Homebrew. Right now there is only the pull request 5968: Formula for Gobby from this branch to include the formula in homebrew.

host a session using the new version 0.5

On Win: run Start → Applicatons → Gobby (0.5) → Infinoted Dedicated Server.

On Linux:

  1. create certificate and private key:
    infinoted --create-key -k ./gobbyKey.pem --create-certificate -c ./gobbyCert.pem
  2. start the server:
    infinoted -k ./gobbyKey.pem -c ./gobbyCert.pem

Instead of explicitly stating the certificates on the command line, you can save the stup in a configuration file ~/.config/infinoted.conf:

[infinoted]
security-policy=require-tls
certificate-file=/home/yourusername/infinoted/cert.pem
key-file=/home/yourusername/infinoted/key.pem

and then simply run

infinoted
