Summary The server shuts down each day
Question The server shuts down each day - why does this happen?
Answer

This is by design. I gather it is to clean up excess memory used by the server during the day. I suggest you set up a batch file (or use the Windows NT "AT" command) to periodically check if the server is running, and if not, start it up.

I have written an example batch file, and a little program that will test if the MUD is up. The batch file uses the testing program ( PortTester) to decide whether to start the MUD up again.
