What is AusNethack?

AusNethack is Australia's first public Nethack server. There is already a great Nethack server at Unfortunately for those of us on the other side of the world, it is hosted on the East coast of the USA, so the latency is a bit high. Hence, AusNethack was born to provide a fast server for the Oceanic region of the world. Building a complete working server is a big job, so this site is a little light on functionality. The aim is that the functionality that does exist is correct. If you find any bugs the please contact us or submit a pull request on our github repository. We are also experimenting with the sorts of game statistics that are useful, so contact us if you have any ideas or requests.


You can now log in and edit your configuration on the web.
We now have the experimental NetHack 3.6.1, which includes dumplogs.
