I've looked around and haven't found any information on what it takes to run a dedicated server for SWBF2. Does anyone know?

Hasn't someone already created a thread on here with the dedicated System requirements?

I'm fairly sure they have..

Well there is this thread on system requirments: http://www.lucasforums.com/showthread.php?t=152490 however it doesn't say anything about setting up a dedicated server. I've looked through the threads and haven't found this info yet. Maybe it's the same?

Most definitely not. Why would you need 3D Graphics and PixelShader for a
dedicated gameserver ?

Based on the experience with other games I'd say that you should have at least
50 Mhz per slot and 256MB Ram at the least.
Your internet connection speed should be at least 5Mbit/s for 12 players,
10Mbit/s for 16 and 100Mbit/s for all the ones beyond 24 players.
All of them full duplex of course.

Therefore a 20 player should look similar to that:

1000Mhz CPU speed, 1500Mhz would be even better
256MB Ram
500MB of hard disk space
10Mbit/s internet connection

That's just my shot, might be slightly more.
