ArmA 3 1.58 RCON not working. I need explanation please.

Recommended Posts

Ok so recently I was reading up on the new changes of ArmA 3 1.58. My server was hit with teamkillers and most likely soon a bunch of hackers this upcoming weekend. I cannot connect to our server via RCON to issue bans, kicks and warnings. I read the post made by Dwarden, but I don't know what I am doing with the options....

 

Here is my BEServer.cfg

RConPassword ************
RConIP "What do I put here?"
RConPort "What do I put here?"

MaxPing 750 // maximal delay to server before BattlEye autokicks
MaxCreateVehiclePerInterval 72 1
MaxSetPosPerInterval 2 1
MaxSetDamagePerInterval 36 1
MaxAddBackpackCargoPerInterval 12 1
MaxAddMagazineCargoPerInterval 96 1
MaxAddWeaponCargoPerInterval 24 1
MaxDeleteVehiclePerInterval 48 1
MaxAttachToPerInterval 4 1

 

How do I find the RCONIP & RCONPort? What is it for? How do I use it?

 

Any solutions.

If your server is on port 2302, add it like the following, if you use +3 ports you don't need to define ip address

RConPort 2305

Check firewall settings?

I don't think it would be that. I am running through NFOServers, I am not sure if the Firewall would be the issue though. Any other ideas?

You cannot use 2305.

Use 2306 (UDP).

 

Ensure 2306 UDP is enabled through your server's firewall.

When connecting to your RCON console, type the same things in, and then just insert 2306 as your server's game port instead.

 

Do not specify an RCONIP.

Also when you try to connect with your RCON tool, do not attempt to connect to the new port you just defined, use the game port that your already using.

This is certainly the case for EPM Rcon, so i suspect is the same for all other RCON tools

Wrong. RCON port is the port you need to connect to

Mine doesn't work on 2302 anymore (like it used to) and only works on 2306 now, the newly defined port in BEConfig

Are you saying you don't connect through your new RCon port?

Here's the thing, that is how it worked last night after we patched and rebooted

Today it is a different issue, now i cant connect on either the game port or the Rconport.

This is getting frustrating

 

Edit: Issue was caused by defining an IP (Multiple instances all on different ports all assigned an IP)

Removing the IP solved the issue

RconPort must avoid reserved ARMA3server port range

default reserved ports (+0,+1,+2,+3) are 2302 - 2305

to clarify the reserved ports can't be used for BattlEye's RCON

you also shall not need to add the RconIP entry

as undefined equals to 0.0.0.0 (all IPv4 local IP addresses)

setting it to e.g. 127.0.0.1 will prevent it to respond on external IP

setting it to e.g. external IP will prevent it to respond on localhost 127.0.0.1

The port of "2306" worked. Thank you guys for the help!

So the server host that I use, has to come up with the port?

If you have access to your ArmA3 installation folder and can edit the BattleEye\BEServer,cfg and add a firewall exception then NO, you can do it yourself

otherwise Yes

I still cannot get this to work..have tried everything with different ports with the IP and without the IP still cannot connect. So frustrating.

 

this is my BE cfg

 

RConPassword mypassword
RConPort 2306

 

 

 

Got it figured out..since 158 I had to create a "serverLog" profile for my command line to get the "custom" to work for difficulty and inside that is another "battleeye" folder..inside that is another beserver.cfg I had to make sure that was the same as the one in the main server folder. Maybe this will help someone else out.
