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
