L4D Dedicated Public Server Admin Questions.

Post by SLAYTER » Sun Nov 23, 2008 10:22 pm

Ok firstly, How do I rcon to my server? Can this be done within L4D?

Once done how can I kick a player from my server?

Thanks Ive been trying to figure this out for awhile

you can enter your rcon password in console like rcon "whatever" and enter commands in your in game console or get hlsw at hlsw.net and do it remotely when your not on the server yourself, once you have entered your rcon password into hlsw rightclick on a players name and kick or ban from there.

Agreed, hlsw works well. You can use it to change maps as well.

Yes, Open console and type
rcon_password YOURPASSHERE
then you can use
kick USERNAME
or try
rcon kick USERNAME

if you don't want to type the username, in console type
status
then copy the username you'd like to kick
