    Tocs is right, we need to know details like what MUD codebase you're using before we can even begin to answer something specific like "auto-reseting".

    Nobody will help you if you just keep on quipping out short, vague, ambiguous questions. Making a MUD is no small undertaking. You're going to need to take your time, slow down, and read read read. The documentation/manual(s) were created for a reason: to explain how things work. Google is also a key resource, that you can use to acquire yourself even more information.

    So please take a moment and think about what you're written in your post before you hit "Submit".

    I don't think he heard you. I wonder if he can hear any of us... (Mentok whistle).

    Anyhow, I took wee bit of a skim through the manual (I recommend it, it does wonders!). This is only presuming that you are indeed using the Grendel MUD Thingy. Could it be that you have a 'shutdown' command placed somewhere where it shouldn't be. That really could be the only thing I could think of. Otherwise, it's just broken and I recommend either getting a new copy of it or trying something else.

    I also recommend that you spend a wee bit more time that 20 sec. to write your post with a full thourough explination of what's going on, what you are doing, what you are using, and what you have tried. This gets the best results, I promise!

    Good luck on your ventures!

    -Bryan-

    P.S. The Grendel MUD manual is located here. It'll tell you how to do most things, including starting up the server again. Enjoy!

    This was taken from the manual:

    Running

    Starting Grendel is simple. Windows users can click on the grendel.exe icon, or open a console window and start the grendel.exe file manually.

    Linux users can either start the executable grendel from an automated script or manually from a terminal.
    Note

    Under Linux Grendel forks to the background by default, to override this and let Grendel write to stdout use grendel -f instead.

    If all is well, you should be able to connect to Grendel by using a telnet client to connect to localhost, port 4444.
