Valheim: Connect to Server

There are three methods that can be used to connect to your server: Join with IP in-game, Add your server to Steam favorites, or through the community listing.

Connecting with IP Address

1
Copy the IP address found in your DatHost Control Panel.
Note that there are different ports, so make sure you copy the correct one.
2
Start Valheim from Steam. Click “Start Game” and choose your character.
3
Click the “Join Game” tab and then “Join IP”.
4
Paste your IP address and click “Connect”.
5
Enter the server’s password and click “Enter”. You’re in!

Adding the server to Steam Favorites

1
Open Steam. Then go to “View” -> “Servers” in the menu found in the top left corner.
2
Click on “Favorites” and then “Add a Server”.
3
Enter your server's IP address and click “Add This Address” to Favorites.
4
Click “Refresh” and your server should appear. You can double-click the server or click the “Connect” button to join the server.
5
If you had Valheim opened, tab into the game. If not, the game will launch, and after some time you’ll be put into the character selection screen. Select your character and click “Start”. This will connect you to the server.
6
Enter the server’s password and click “Enter”. You’re in!

Find the server in the Community List

The community listing is a bit unreliable in Valheim, so we recommend the two options above.
1
Start Valheim from Steam. Click “Start Game” and choose your character.
2
Click the “Join Game” tab. Tick the box for “Community” and filter on your server’s name.
3
When you find your server - click on it and then on “Connect”.
4
Enter the server’s password and click “Enter”. You’re in!
