Secure your rcon

Postby Dimitri » 09 Sep 2009, 23:43

Rcon (RemoteCONtrol) is used to take a full control over your server, thats why you must be the only one knowing it and make it secured.

Here are a few tips to secure your rcon :

#1 - Choose a complicated rcon like "aDhT18vHd9" instead of a simple one. Mix letters and numbers, even some special characters if you like.

#2 - In your server.cfg use penalties against players trying to enter random rcon passwords :

Code: Select all

sv_rcon_banpenalty 5
sv_rcon_maxfailures 10
sv_rcon_minfailures 5
sv_rcon_minfailuretime 30

#3 - Protect your rcon against exploits installing plugins (check Game Mods > Plugins). There are some like "Rcon lock" or "Ironwall" doing the job.
