Steam Dedicated Servers without steam client?

Hey guys/girl,
I am currently developing a FPS game. Its mainly in BP but converted to a c++ project to enable the use of dedicated servers. I have a steam dedicated server working but only while the client is installed and using a steam account. Does anyone know how to get the server working without the client installed? There seems to be a real lack on info when googling it.



Anyone figure this out? My Windows Server 2019 Machine doesn’t have Steam Client installed and I don’t think it should need to if its just being used as a server.
