Obs.: For commands, be sure to use an elevated console (admin rights).


  • You MUST be running Windows 10 or Linux (untested).
  • You MUST have up to date Node JS installed.
  • You MUST have up to date NPM installed.
  • If running Windows 10, you must run the following command: npm install --global --production windows-build-tools. Obs.: It may fail sometimes.

Install the server as a service with the following comands:

npm install -g signal-server
signal-service install my-test 8888
Step 2
  • On Windows, start the server running: net start signal-my-test on elevated shell.
  • On Debian/Ubuntu, start the server running: sudo service signal-my-test start.
Step 3

The first character in the UDP message will be interpreted as a command of the following three.
