Well I think you are asking: "Where do I go to register a server?". The answer is that you don't. The servers register themselves or not based on the information in your maps config file.

did u read the bzflag wiki? http://bzflag.org/wiki/CreatingAServer
Using the switch -public ...... tells the server to publish itself on the serverlist. If no -public than not.

Janis you don't need to put that... only sometimes you need to, if your server is not registering and you are using -public and you are windows then you could try that...

BZFlag has defaults for most everything, for example the default port is 5154, so if you don't supply a port with -p then you use 5154 ;-) and the normal list server is the default ;-)

If you need to register to a non-default list server then you go ahead and do that.

(for those of you who want to know how to setup a list server... the bzfsl is in the source code ;-))
