Headless Server
Kp's suggestion is probably best if you want to get it "simple".
I did some research in the same direction which is headless (dedicated) server - back then I came to conclusion that reverse engineering net code and base entire thing just on that could be the approach. Mimicking the game host in terms of a net code.
Not an easy task yet offering some freedom from the main source and all unnecessary things - you can simply make it  as console app (and/or linux deamon).
