TeamSpeak server on FreeBSD - Getting it done quick
I've been looking for posts about installing TSS on FreeBSD, and I couldn't see anyone describing the way I normally do it. So, I thought I'd describe my procedure for a clean TeamSpeak on FreeBSD install.
This quick guide presumes your FreeBSD box is only going to be used as a TeamSpeak server. If it's also going to be a gateway/NAT/firewall/etc., then you probably want to spend some time locking it down before, and after, installing TS.
- Install the latest FreeBSD stable release from a bootable CD.
- Login and install the cvsup package,
- pkg_add -r cvsup-without-gui (compiling cvsup builds Modula-3, which takes a LONG time, so I use the package)
- Launch cvsup to update your ports,
- cvsup -L 2 -h cvsup.FreeBSD.org /usr/share/examples/cvsup/ports-supfile
- Install the amazing "portupgrade" utilities,
- cd /usr/ports/sysutils/portupgrade
- make install clean
- Update the ports/packages database so all ports are fresh and indexed,
- pkgdb -F
- Install TeamSpeak using the portupgrade utils. "portinstall" will download and compile TeamSpeak, as well as any dependencies...
- portinstall teamspeak_server
- ... grab yourself a brew/snack/movie, while that builds...
- Edit rc.conf to launch TSS at startup,
- vi /etc/rc.conf
- teamspeak_enable="YES" <- ( Add that line in rc.conf )
- shutdown -r now
- During startup, you should see TeamSpeak server startup if all has gone well... Yay!
- Login and check the TS log file to get your passwords. The log is in the same place as the binary, which normally puts it at...
- cat /usr/local/lib/teamspeak_server/server.log
- Jump on another computer and connect to the web admin interface! That's it!
Since that was all so easy, you probably want to jump in and build an optimised kernel for your new system! Go!

This looks great, I will try this when I set up my server later on tonight. I will be using FreeBSD 6.2 set up with the features on this web page http://www.openaddict.com/node/33. I figure installing the server and editing the rc.conf file should be enough. I'll post more if I have problems.
