How To Setup a Teamspeak 3 Server on Windows

This guide will explain the basics of setting up a TeamSpeak 3 server on Windows.

Prerequisites

  • At least 1GB RAM.
  • Teamspeak client software installed on your computer.

Step 1 - Downloading Teamspeak

Download the Teamspeak 3 server from the following URL.

http://dl.4players.de/ts/releases/3.0.11.3/teamspeak3-server_win64-3.0.11.3.zip

Extract the ZIP archive to a folder of your choice, I used the desktop for ease.

Step 2 - Running Teamspeak

Navigate to the folder where you have extracted Teamspeak.

Inside of it is an executable named ts3server_win64.exe. Run this executable.

A dialog box will open with an admin privilege key. You will need to enter this privilege key when you connect to your server.

Now that your server is running, try connecting to it by specifying the IP address of your VPS in the Teamspeak client (on your computer). If you can't connect to your server, try allowing port 9987 through Windows Firewall.

Conclusion

You now have a fully working Teamspeak 3 server - invite your friends to your server!
