This concise guide will walk you through the steps to install TeamSpeak on Fedora 39, ensuring you’re set up for seamless voice communication. Whether you’re coordinating with your gaming team or need a reliable platform for group chats, keep reading to discover how easy it is to get TeamSpeak up and running on your Fedora system.

This article assumes you have at least basic knowledge of Linux, know how to use the shell, and most importantly, you host your site on your own VPS. The installation is quite simple and assumes you are running in the root account, if not you may need to add ‘sudo‘ to the commands to get root privileges. I will show you the step-by-step installation of the TeamSpeak 3 server on a Fedora 39.


Before diving into the installation process, let’s ensure that you have everything you need:

  • A server running one of the following operating systems: Fedora 39.
  • It’s recommended that you use a fresh OS install to prevent any potential issues.
  • You will need access to the terminal to execute commands. Fedora 39 provides the Terminal application for this purpose. It can be found in your Applications menu.
  • A network connection or internet access to download the TeamSpeak repository.
  • A non-root sudo user or access to the root user. We recommend acting as a non-root sudo user, however, as you can harm your system if you’re not careful when acting as the root.

Install Teamspeak on Fedora 39

Step 1. Before diving into the TeamSpeak server installation, it’s crucial to prepare your Fedora system by updating it and installing the necessary dependencies. Open your terminal and execute:

sudo dnf clean all
sudo dnf update

Step 2. Installing Dependencies.

For security reasons, it’s best practice to run the TeamSpeak server under a dedicated user. This limits the potential impact on your system in case of any vulnerabilities. Create a new user with:

sudo dnf install nano wget perl tar net-tools bzip2

Step 3. Create a Dedicated User

For security reasons, it’s best to run the TeamSpeak server under a dedicated user account:

sudo adduser teamspeak -d /opt/teamspeak

This command creates a new user named teamspeak with the home directory set to /opt/teamspeak

Step 4. Installing TeamSpeak Fedora 39.

Navigate to the TeamSpeak official website to find the latest server version link. As of the writing, the command below downloads version 3.13.7:

wget https://files.teamspeak-services.com/releases/server/3.13.7/teamspeak3-server_linux_amd64-3.13.7.tar.bz2

Extract the downloaded archive and move the TeamSpeak files to the dedicated directory:

tar -xvjf teamspeak3-server_linux_amd64-3.13.7.tar.bz2
mv teamspeak3-server_linux_amd64/* /opt/teamspeak/
chown -R teamspeak: /opt/teamspeak

Next, create a file to indicate that you accept the TeamSpeak license agreement:

touch /opt/teamspeak/.ts3server_license_accepted

Step 5. Create a Systemd Service File

To manage the TeamSpeak service easily, create a systemd service file:

nano /lib/systemd/system/teamspeak.service

Add the following configurations to the file:

Description=Team Speak 3 Server



Reload the systemd daemon, start the TeamSpeak service, and enable it to start at boot:

sudo systemctl --system daemon-reload
sudo systemctl start teamspeak
sudo systemctl enable teamspeak

You can check the status of the TeamSpeak service using:

sudo systemctl status teamspeak

Step 6. Configure Firewall.

Allow TeamSpeak server ports through the firewall:

firewall-cmd --zone=public --add-port=9987/udp --permanent
firewall-cmd --zone=public --add-port=10011/tcp --permanent
firewall-cmd --reload

These commands open the default TeamSpeak ports for voice (UDP 9987) and server query (TCP 10011).

Congratulations! You have successfully installed TeamSpeak. Thanks for using this tutorial for installing TeamSpeak 3 on your Fedora 39 system. For additional or useful information, we recommend you check the official TeamSpeak website.
