Good day zromaz,
Try using build 197. Build 196 in particular had a bug which causes the server to crash, but it has been fixed in build 197.
For posterity, the instructions are as follows:
- Download the Minecraft Forge server software from http://files.minecraftforge.net.
- Install as per Forge instructions for your platform.
- Download the latest IndustrialCraft2 release from the Jenkins build system. As of this post, the most recent version is industrialcraft-2-2.8.197-ex112.jar. This file goes in the server folder from the previous step, under the subfolder named "mods".
- That's it!
