Two instances of Steam in-home streaming on one PC

Postby Aquaboy11 » 2017-09-02 18:01

I'm building a headless Steam gameserver which utilises Steam in-home streaming to let two people play at the same time. The multiseat part of the setup is done and functional, but there are two issues left I can't seem to figure out myself.

The biggest one: only one Steam client can enable in-home streaming at a time. This is most likely due to using the same ports and IP address. Is there a way to bind each user to their own IP address? (the machine itself already had 3 IPs on a single interface)

The second issue would be getting the system to use the GPUs without a monitor connected. The easiest way to achieve this would be to use HDMI dummy plugs which simulate a display. But as to my knowledge Linux should be capable of simulating displays. Is this correct, and if so, how would I achieve this?

Most important parts:
Gigabyte GA-AB350M-HD3-rev-10
Ryzen 7 1700
2x AMD Radeon RX 550
