How to access the Server's Remote Console (RCON)

Recommended Posts

If you would like to use the RCON to do any server wide commands you cant do ingame, download a free software called mcron which will help you do this, this is especially useful for initially enabling the OP permission for yourself the easy way.

 

 

Download mcron HERE, extract that zip file into a folder on your computer and double click on the "launch" icon,

 

A cmd window will open up where you can log in, your RCON Details are found on your server Control Panel page.

 

In the command window, type your server IP address and press enter, then type your server port number and enter,

lastly, type in your RCON password and press enter, and then you can start issuing any commands to the server.

 

To give a player OP permission:

 

      op [player name]

Mine just says "Error: connection failed (server IP)."  I tried using a different RCON client and got "Connection refused."  RCON is enabled in my server.properties file, and I used the port and password from my control panel; what am I doing wrong?

 

Here's the full contents of my .bat file, generated using "create_shortcut.bat," with the obvious important information edited out:

@echo off
@mcrcon.exe -t -H <redacted> -P 22416 -p <very redacted> -c
pause

My server is currently hung waiting for someone to enter /fml confirm due to a config screwup on my end.  I forgot to disable something after adding a mod, so now the server's world is "missing" the item and it won't continue loading until someone puts in that command.  Could that be why it's refusing to connect via RCON?

 

Edit: Yup, it was just because the server wasn't fully loaded.  Bah.

Happy it is working for you once the server fully loaded up. :)

How did you get the server to fully load?
