first you will need to enable the console, under options. Then you hit ~ to pull up the console, and type
rcon_password ******

that will authenticate you and allow you to run remote console commands. here is a list of some of the more useful ones:

rcon_password [password] - remote console password.
rcon [command] - Issue an rcon command.

users - Show user info for players on server
kick [username/userid/userslot] - Kick a player by slot, userid or name

addip [ipaddress] - Add an IP address to the ban list
removeip [userip] - Remove an IP address from the ban list
writeip - Save the ban list to banned_ip.cfg
listip - List IP addresses on the ban list

banid [userid] - Add a user ID to the ban list
removeid [userid] - Remove a user ID from the ban list
writeid - Writes a list of permanently-banned user IDs to banned_user.cfg
listid - Lists banned users

changelevel [mapname] - Change to the specified map

Go to Options, Keyboard, Advanced and check Enable Developers console.

To admin remotely you wll need to use HLSW... http://www.hlsw.org/

Change it in the server.cfg via FTP

To make your server a 24/7 one map edit your maplist.txt and mapcycle.txt files.

One other question....why does my motd file get reset to default everytime I restart the server. I know the restart does the HLDS update, but should it overwrite the MOTD file?

If there is an update, the MOTD is over written each time. What I do is set my MOTD to read only, CHMOD 444 or use youre FTP browser. If it is read only, it wont be over written in an update.

The rcon password is in your server.cfg file. I believe gameservers defaults it to your account user name(number). You should change it.

If you go into your Control Panel, thats where youll want to do everything. Once you log in to your CP hit the HOME button, if youre not there already. Youll also want a good FTP program to upload/download your files. Use the FTP program to download your server.cfg file. Youll find it in the CFG directory. Which will be /tf/xx.xx.xx.xx:27015/tf/cfg youll need to fill it in with the IP of your server. Once in the directory download the server.cfg file and use a good text editor to edit the file. Go to the line that says rcon_password "xxxxx" and change this to the password you wish to use. The default is the number to your account. Youll also want to change the hostname to whatever you want to call your server, and adjust any other settings to your liking. Once it is all setup, upload your server.cfg back to the server. Youll want to stop and restart the server at this point. Now your server will be setup and under your control.

From inside the game, open your console and type 'rcon_password XXXXX' without the quotes, using whatever you set the rcon password to. Now you are logged into rcon and can issue the rcon commands that have been laid out previously in this thread.

Hope this helps...

can someone tell me how to create a server message? I've checked the FTP config files and can't seem to find where to edit/add it.
