[Solved] Bad Rcon Password
#1
Hi
I'm having a bit of trouble with rcon. When i try to login to rcon (by entering rcon password ******) i always get Bad Rcon Password. i have changed the password several time and made several new server.cfg's, but no matter what i do nothing works. Any help would be appreciated.

Windows 7 x64
Intel core i3
RAM: 4gb
Counter Strike Source
srcds.exe -console -autoupdate +map cs_assault -game cstrike -maxplayers 12

Did you open TCP @ port 27015. Command is rcon_password <pwd> in console. Did you add rcon_password <pwd> to your server.cfg?

make sure the right password appears if you type "rcon_password" at the server console. else you have some other rcon_password somewhere else in your config :-)

no i only have one. btw i have just noticed that no one can join my server,
i have all the ports open on my modem (have no router) and have turned windows firewall off, And have put my ip into dmz. I have changed the port and ip several times, and i have used the port checker at canyouseeme.org and i am getting a negative result. Im not sure if this would help.

if you have a dmz you have a router (with an integrated modem probably)...
can you post screen shots of the relevant router/modem configuration pages?

you are forwarding port 27015 to 192.168.1.3, but that does not seem to be your IP...
also I would recommend not using a DMZ but only port forwardings, that should be enough (and much more secure).

That is the problem indeed. Port forwarding to 192.168.1.3. Are you using a static local IP address? Remove DMZ and open the ports to 192.168.1.4.

Add +ip 192.168.1.4 to your startup line.

ok i have made my ip static to 192.168.1.4 and taken it out of dmz but that has not fixed the problem. the server is showing the right ip and port.

Did you add +ip 192.168.1.4? Did you open all the ports? Can't see all ports on the second picture.

UDP: 1200 (used for friends service)
UDP: 27000 to 27015 inclusive
TCP: 27020 to 27050 inclusive
UDP: 27015 and 27020 (default HLDS, SRCDS and HLTV port)
TCP: 27015 (SRCDS Rcon port)

Use your non local ip to connect to the server.

Ok all the ports are port forwarded. When i add
+ip 192.138.1.4 to the startup line i cant connect to the server, it times out.
And canyouseeme.org still says that the ports are closed. And rcon still does not work. I don't know if anyone can join yet, i plan on finding out today.

do you actually try to connect from outside? most routers do not support port forwardings from the inside, so you have to connect to 192.138.1.4 if you are in the same network.
