Need clarification for dynamically starting dedicated servers
So i have a backend which takes care of player registration and login in-game. players can't host a game themselves and have to send a request to backend and gets queued. when enough players are in queue a server should be created and pass the server info to the players and this parts that's not clear for me. so far i can just start a UE4 server by running mygameServer.exe located in Win64 folder.
Thanks in advance.

2) Assuming you spawn a new server process for each game, then you would also need some kind of "manager server." It could take care of launching the new game server and telling the clients what the port + IP is for that new server.
