Cccam Clines and Flines Explained for Beginners

By | March 11, 2016

Today specially for you guys cccam clines and flines explained in simple words. That’s something for total cccam beginners, newbies or people who never heard of cccam servers. After reading this article you will be able to set up your very own cccam server. I am not kidding you guys. This is super easy, sit down and relax as I guide you through this simple process.

What’s C, what’s F?

First some basic explanation, F-line serves the purpose of someone who is giving you access to his own server to connect to, whereas C-line is what you need to connect to his server. It’s like lock and key in simple words.

F: = Friend, for others to connect to your server.
C: = Connect, for you to connect to other servers.

Let’s begin

What you need is to create yourself a dns address and download the updater software to go with it. In my opinion DynDNS is one of the best solution and highly recommended.


DynDNS:
Dyndns- Register – DynDNS.com
Updater Software – DynDNS.com Windows Update Client
No-IP:
No-ip – Register – No-IP
Updater Software – Update client for your dynamic IP

The dns address you pick for your server will create the first part of all clines you send to your peers like this.

C: youraddress.dyndns.org

The second part of the cline is the server listen port, which has default value of 12000. If you want to change it, just go to your cccam.cfg and look for the following line:

SERVER LISTEN PORT : 12000

you can change it to any port number you want as long as you open the corresponding port in your router. Now our cccam cline looks like this:

C: youraddress.dyndns.org 12000

Now we need to create a username and password in your cccam.cfg to allow a peer to connect to your server. This is where the fline comes in. To make the fline using your ftp programme(i.e. Filezilla) connect to your receiver and go to /etc you should see a file named cccam.cfg, right click on this and choose edit. These are the only lines that need to be there for it to work. If you find it easier delete it all, then copy and paste this in its place.

Here is the cccam.cfg file code:

SERVER LISTEN PORT : 12000

ALLOW TELNETINFO: yes

ALLOW WEBINFO: yes

WEBINFO USERNAME : yourname

WEBINFO PASSWORD : yourname

TELNETINFO USERNAME : yourname

TELNETINFO PASSWORD : yourname

TELNETINFO LISTEN PORT : 16000

WEBINFO LISTEN PORT : 16001

ZAP OSD TIME : 3

#OSD USERNAME : yourname

#OSD PASSWORD : yourname

OSD PORT : 80

SHOW TIMING : yes

DEBUG : no

NEWCAMD CONF : no

DISABLE EMM : no

EXTRA EMM LEVEL : no

MINI OSD : yes

PROVIDERINFO FILE : /etc/CCcam.providers

CHANNELINFO FILE : /etc/CCcam.channelinfo

#MINIMUM DOWNHOPS: 1

#LOG WARNINGS : /tmp/warnings.txt
You can disable or enable any of these command lines by adding or removing #.

Standard fline looks like this:

F: username password

This is all you need for your peer to connect to you and now we can complete the cline using the user name and password from the fline. Completed cline should look like this:

C: youraddress.dyndns.org 12000 username password

Conclusion

As you can see this isn’t a rocket science and you can easily set up your own cccam server and watch your favourite tv channels i.e. in other room of your house or apartment.
