Post here all what you know about implementation of the headless client in missions

Recommended Posts

I have been banging my head against the wall for hours on trying to get a headless client to connect using password.

I am on latest beta patch 106400, with no mods installed and can get the HC to connect without any issues if no password is on the server, but as soon as I password protect and then stick -password=testpass in the HC launch I just keep getting Cannot join the session. Wrong password was given.

When I search it seems like people have had this problem and then got it working but I can't for the life of me find anything the explains how/why they got it working. This seems to be the most active thread for HC, anyone have any suggestions? :butbut:

You must be doing something wrong as I have a server running the latest beta patch for A2 (106400 as of right now) and I have my my HC connected with a password.

I know that in ARMA 3 (at this moment) there is a bug with the HC connecting to a server with the password set - BIS are aware of this and its logged internally for them to look at but with A2 its working fine.

I can only suggest posting your configs (omit the password for security reasons) so we can all take a look to see if there's anything obvious.

Have you tried changing the server password to ensure there's no typo's, spacing, case-sensitive issues?

From our HC startup...works with password on server:

-connect=127.0.0.1 -password=12345 -client

Server:

-config=A2Testserver.cfg -beta=Expansion\beta;Expansion\beta\Expansion -mod=Expansion\beta;Expansion\beta\Expansion;

HC:

-client -beta=Expansion\beta;Expansion\beta\Expansion -mod=Expansion\beta;Expansion\beta\Expansion; -name=HC -connect=127.0.0.1 -password=test

A2Testserver.cfg:

hostname         = "Arma II: Test Server";
password         = "test";
passwordAdmin    = "*******";

maxPlayers		= 30;

disableVoN         	= 0;
vonCodecQuality     	= 8;
persistent         	= 1;

battleye=0;
localclient[]={127.0.0.1};

I've tried using multiple passwords, including one letter passwords. I can join the server with a password from a standard client without issue, and if I just remove the password from the .cfg and from the HC command line - those being only changes - then the HC connects without issue.

Has anyone seen an issue when trying to launch HC where it pops up a white error box on start that says "No cfgWorld". It then finishes loading and attempts to connect but nothing displays in the output console except for a time stamp (repeatedly)?

What's the startup line for your HC (blank out any passwords should it be private)?

Ironically, I discovered the issue when I was attempting to get the startup line this weekend: I had initially attempted to install the A2OA 1.50-1.60 patch but apparently it did not take. A reinstall and patching fixed the issue.

I'm having problems when the HC run and try to update BE for itself.

There is a way for me to update BE automaticaly and avoid the HC trying to update it at server start?

Thankyou!
