Using RCON Commands


RCON stands for Remote Control. This article is a guide on using RCON on Counter Strike Source servers. RCON should be given to 1 admin for every 10 player slots on a server.


A tool to simplify RCON use is HLSW, downloadable here:




Log into RCON

In order to use RCON, you need to access the console in game using the ~ button. Once open, you need to set the RCON password on your computer before you can send commands to the server. Simply enter "rcon_password mypass". To check and make sure it worked, type rcon status. If you get a printout of server status, youre logged into RCON!




RCON Commands List

Before you can use commands, you should know what a CVAR is. CVAR stands for control variable. CVARs consist of 2 parts, the control item, and the setting for that item. For settings, 0=off and 1=on, and some accept any number (time limits, and start money).

Example: mp_friendlyfire 1

The mp_friendlyfire is the control item you are setting, and you are setting it to 1 (on).


Player Management Commands

rcon kick kicks player with certain username (for long ones, cut and paste from console)
rcon banid Ban a player with a certain ID (found in rcon status) for a time in minutes.
rcon status Prints the servers status, and players status in console



Map Timelimit Commands

mp_maxrounds 30 Sets the maximum rounds played to 30
mp_winlimit 60 Sets the map to change at a team winning 60 rounds
mp_timelimit 35 Sets the timelimit before a new map is played
mp_fraglimit 50 Sets the max frags a player can have before a map change

I'd be down for a zombie/surf/GG server.

If you guys like Cards Against Humanity we could create an FT lobby on -[link]- and play that too
