I'm using GNU Emacs (x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu, GTK+ Version 3.22.5) of 2016-12-20, with arch linux (antergos), I want to start with the option tcp server, so I added and assigment to the variable server-use-tcp,

(setq server-use-tcp t)

and I get this warning:

In toplevel form:
init.el:15:7:Warning: assignment to free variable ‘server-use-tcp’

Is this variable deleted?, or is the wrong way to this? or what library I need to require before setting that variable?

    This variable is defined in server.el. Could you try to (require 'server) before you set this variable? – wvxvw Dec 24 '16 at 8:51
  • Indeed. Running server-start also makes it available (through autoloading). Note this is not new to emacs 26. – JeanPierre Dec 24 '16 at 9:19
