How do I use RCON on TF2?
#1
I seem to be having a problem using RCON on my TF2 server, I open up my console and type rcon_password (mypassword), and after that i try to change the level but it says cannot change level, and something saying I don't have access to do it. How can I fix this?

Can you please post the following:

1. Copy/paste data from your server.cfg file

2. Confirm that you have updated HLDSupdateTOOL.exe fully.

3. Running any plugins/mods for maps/servers/admin

4. Confirm if the maps play correctly.

The reason rcon won't work is because there are no settings for it, but I think its because you have an admin plugin, same thing happend to me.

I think you have to set yourself as an admin in one of the .cfg's

But will let the pros confirm that on here.

Mooga, did you read his first post? Toungue

He has done that, but isn't working for him so we need to see how he is setup.

Password settings look fine.

Are you running any admin plugins?

Also is this a home server or hosted?

Yes, that error normally happens when you sent the rcon command WITHOUT rcon in front of it.

Ya, followed Beck's "How to setup TF2 server" tutorial on the site, and yes I have done all the port forwarding, people can come into my server but I cant access admin commands.

Ok.....

It sounds like a user error.

Change password to something easy that only you know.

Place that into your server.cfg as per above.

Run server, connect to it as a player.

Run the command in console and report back to us.

Thanks.
