Creating a Tekkit server is actually not as hard as it may seem, while the main problem that people have is computer power, not being able to support running a Tekkit server and/or Tekkit at the same time. This tutorial can help you setup your server and let other connet to it via LogMeInHamachi. i will also be providing FREE Temaviewer support to anyone that may need it.

Requirements and Files

It is Recommneded not to try and setup a server on a old computer, my peronsla minimum requirements are
  • Dual Core Processor
  • 4GB of Ram (8 is great!)
  • 200+GB Hard Drive/SSD
  • LAN Connection ( Not Wireless )
  • Perferably not a Laptop

The required file to setup your Tekkit server will just be going tohttp://www.technicpack.netand going to the Tekkit tab and downloading the tekkie 3.1.2 (This will work for The old Tekkit files, and the new updates) Server files.

Creating the Server

After downloading the Zip with the tekkit server files, make a new folder and name it your server of whatever, and unzip all of the tekkit files into that folder.

If your computer has less than 4GB of ram OR is a 32 bit operating system, you must change the values in the launch.bat by right clicking and selecting edit. after you are in there you will see java -Xmx3G -Xms2GB - jar Tekkit.jar nogui, or close to that replace the 3 and 2 with 1 and save the file. Double click on the launch.bat and your server will start! after it has generating all the file and said loaded 0 world anchors, startup tekkit and connect to the server, if you are running the server on th same computer as running tekkit you will either uselocalhostas the IP or127.0.0.1as the IP, This IP will ONLY work for you, if you wold like to have other join watch the tutorial and setup hamachi to work with it,

You would have to port forware, lookup on how to do that, and give them your IP, if you need help setting it up, just add me on Skype and i would be glad to help :D

Is it different for 3.1.3? I did everything you said but it just says:
java -Xmx1G -Xms1G -jar Tekkit.jar nogui
"'java' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program, or batch file.

Press any key to continue......"

Please help =(

To set it up Go in you Control Panel, go in System then click Advanced Settings

Then click Environment Variables

Create a new System Variable and name it path and put this in the Path (If your Java's Path is different you may need to change it to the path that the Java bin is in) :

C:/Program Files/Java/bin;%path%

It is not differentfor 3.1.3, that means you do not have your java path setup correctly google how to set it up right.
