RCON

1. RCON back to top


1.1. General back to top


RCON stands for Remote Control. It is the primary method that you, as a server admin, will use to control your dedicated server. Warsow shares much of its rcon functionality with Quake 2 and Half-Life.
RCON allows you to issue commands for the server to run, after you have authenticated with the server using a password. It is basically the same as typing the command into the console window on the computer the dedicated server is running on. Note that whoever knows the servers RCON password has access to kill your server - so keep it secret and only give it out to people you trust!
It's main uses are:
  • Changing the map
  • Kicking an unwanted player
  • Banning an unwanted player
  • Changing server settings temporarily

1.2. Setting Up back to top


1.2.1. On the server back to top


To allow you to control your server using RCON, you will need to create an rcon password. To do this, open your config file ('dedicated.cfg' or 'dedicated_autoexec.cfg') from your Warsow servers directory in your favorite text editor, and add:
set rcon_password "1234"

to the file, replacing "1234" with the password of your choice.
Save, exit, and restart your server.

1.2.2. On your client back to top


After joining the server, pull down your console and type:
rcon_password "1234"

where "1234" is replaced with the password you added to the server config above.

1.3. Issuing server commmands back to top


Only AFTER entering your RCON password (see above) you can issue commands to the server for it to run.
To do this, pull down your console and type:
rcon <command>

This will cause the server to run the command you replaced <command>; with - see below for a list of the most frequently used.

1.4. Kicking & Banning back to top


Before using these commands, authorise yourself with the server following the directions above.

1.4.1. Getting the players ID number back to top


Pull down your console and type:
rcon status

which will give you a display similar to the following:
img:Rcon_status.png
Where the players ID number - which is what the server knows the player by - is shown first. Here, it's '0'.
This display also shows you the players IP address, needed to ban players.

1.4.2. Kicking a player back to top


To kick a player, after finding his ID using the command above, use the command:
rcon kick <playerid>;

Where playerid is the ID shown using the display above.

1.4.3. Banning a player back to top


Thankfully i've never had to do this, as it seems the code to ban someone is pretty suspect, however here's what i gleaned from the forums on the subject, taken from This Thread.
You will need to have the players IP address, which can be found using rcon status, shown above.
To ban the player, type the following series of commands:

rcon addip bogus <players_ip> //adds the IP to the ban list. 'bogus' can be any data - it is needed
//because the command expects two parameters even though it's not used.
rcon writeip //saves the bans to the banlist
rcon kick <player_ID> //kicks the player from the server.

1.5. List of notable commands back to top

2. OP back to top


2.1. General back to top


OP stands for Operator. It is the primary method that you, as a server operator, will use to control votes on your server.
OP allows you to issue commands for the server to call a opvotes, after you have authenticated with the server using a password. It is basically the same as calling a vote.
It's main uses are:
  • Everything what you can change with normal votes

2.2. Setting Up back to top


2.2.1. On the server back to top


To allow you to control your server using OP, you will need to create an OP password. To do this, open your config file ('dedicated.cfg') from your Warsow servers directory in your favorite text editor, and add:

to the file, replacing "1234" with the password of your choice.
Save, exit, and restart your server.

2.2.2. On your client back to top


After joining the server, pull down your console and type:
op "1234"

or

where "1234" is replaced with the password you added to the server config above.

2.3. Issuing server commmands back to top


Only AFTER entering your OP password (see above) you can issue commands to the server for it to run.
To do this, pull down your console and type:
