How to Pair the Rust+ Mobile App with Your Server

Rust+ is the official Rust companion app that allows you to pair servers you play on with the app on your phone. You can view the server status, chat with other players, view the map and more.

To setup and pair Rust+ with your Rust server, follow the steps below:

Download the Rust+ app on your phone (iOS, Android). Push Notifications must be enabled for the app.

Contact us on our live chat or submit a ticket requesting an extra port for Rust+. An extra port number above 10000 must be allocated to your server.

In your server.cfg file (/server/my_server_identity/cfg/server.cfg), set app.port to the new port number you were provided and set app.publicip to your Server IP (not including the port). You will need to add these settings if they do not already exist. To do this, just add the following new lines, with the port you were provided, and your Server's IP.

app.port 12345

Restart your server.

Once your server is back online, join your server and press Esc to open the menu, then select Rust+.

If it worked correctly, you should see a "Pair with Server" button appear - click it. Otherwise, press refresh (sometimes you need to restart both the game and the mobile app).

You will either receive a push notification on your phone, or if the app is open you should see your server appear, and will be able to press "Pair Server" on your phone.

That's it! The app should now be connected successfully.
