Can I run a mod admin in a listen server?

All the examples of running Admin mods for servers have been on dedicated servers but can tese mods run on normal listen servers?

If do I load the admin mod?

Thanks for your answers guys.....
Also I dont know why but when I create the server (listen server)the cvars and mp_autoteambalance and mp_limitteams set to 1 even ig they are set to 0 on the server.cfg
Pardon my ignorance but what's the difference between a dedicated server and a "listen" server?
A listen server is created through the steam application, the one that runs in you system tray at the bottom right hand corner of the screen. Because of this it is dependant on steam and you need to have the steam client installed on your pc in order to be able to do this.

The "dedicated" server ("stand-alone" would probably be a better description, seeing as both the listen and "dedicated" servers are technically both dedicated servers) is a server setup that is downloaded using a DOS (or linux) utility - "hldsupdatetool". It basically downloads all the files needed to run the server without having to have steam installed which makes it ideal for hosted servers or admins wanting to run the server from a seperate machine to the one they're playing the game on.

It is also the case that the "dedicated" server is a lot more configurable than the listen server, which only gives you access to a small subset of the available game attributes so although it takes more work to get a "dedicated" server up and running the result is a much more flexible setup. This is why most server admins usually end up moving to the stand alone setup sooner or later.

As far as the original question is concerned, the fact that the listen server depends on steam to work makes it highly unlikely that you could run an admin plugin on one.
Ahhh...ok. thx. I have always ran a dedicated server so wasn't sure what the listen server was.
