http://www.crysisnews.de/ has a little program called cryRcon that is supose to be an external rcon client. I tried it but couldnt get it to work with my server. Maybe they can get it fixed soon.

I Got It Working!!!

Post by FPSA_JakkFrosted » Wed Dec 05, 2007 4:12 am

OK, one thing I noticed is that gameservers put the autoexec.cfg in the /game/config folder but their instructions say to put it in the Configs folder, I put the rcon crap in both.

I also got CryRcon working. The issue with the port error in cryrcon is because it won't except 4 digit port numbers, so if you are using port 9025 enter 09025. The only issue I have with cryrcon is when I refresh the player list I get a runtime error and it crashes but everything else works.

in game to connect o rcon
go to console ` type

rcon_connect addr: port:64087 pass:urpass

to test:
rcon_command sv_say hello world
rcon_command kick nomad
rcon_command map shore (change level)
end session rcon_disconnect //use it because sometimes rcon will hang if u don't disconnect

xvx wrote:To Setup your server for rcon enter this in your autoexec.cfg If you dont have a autoexec.cfg you can create one and put it in the Configs Directory

http_startserver port:XXXX pass:MyPassword

Where XXXX is the port you wish to run it on. Once the server is up your should be able to connect to


To get rcon to work add this to autoexec.cfg

rcon_startserver port:XXXX pass:MyPassword

In game to connect to rcon you need to do

rcon_connect addr:<server address> port:<rcon port> pass:<rcon pass>

to run a command

rcon_command sv_say hey

This may also work in your server.cfg.

Try using any port between 9001-9050, those are open on the firewall

http_startserver port:9025 pass:yourpasshere

Same goes for RCON, they should work with any of those ports. Make sure you use different ports for RCON and WebAccess, do not use the same port.

a example of the autoexec.cfg file whould be great
dont you think?

map shore


For those expecting a website to appear @ http://YourIP:9002
This is not the case.
The command http_startserver opens an XMLRPC port on the server to accept requests from.
The protocol is called, CryHttp.
If your server is setup properly you should recieve
HTTP/1.1 400 Bad Request
Server: CryHttp/0.0.1
Content-Type: text/html
Content-Length: 52


When browsing to it in your web browser.
The protocol is used to send and receive chunks of information to and from that port via UDP
You can verify the status by querying your server at
provide IP, http server port, and change debug to yes. click execute.

If I am mistaken about all of this please let me know, but everything seems to be working on my end, I am able to see who's online, current map, kick players, send messages to the server, etc via this protocol.

Those looking to do the same I recommend http://www.crymod.com/thread.php?threadid=17684
Which utilizes the method, see my post http://www.crymod.com/thread.php?postid ... post669753
Keep in mind since the dedicated server is on a remote system you wont be able to provide the location of the server logs, or configs which will allow for ping monitoring, permabans, etc. With out setting up an automated download of the server log.

I am currently working on a php class to provide the web based functionality of RConnect, but so far I am not having any luck.
