Hey
What RCON password should I use to remotely check my server I'm running at home?
I'm using Source Admin Tool.

You can set your rcon password in the server.cfg file.

Hey Screwball, thanks for the reply. Do you mean the server_config file where track rotation etc is listed? If so, what is the parameter, e.g. "RCON_password = xxx"?
If you mean a different file then I don't have it. Is it supposed to be under the main dir?

I totally gave u wrong information  :P
I sent message from the phone, later at home i realized its not in server.cfg file.
I got rcon password set up by the host.... but makes me wonder, how to do it!?

i had a dedicated server but they told me that RCON wasn't implemented! now i have a VPS to have console access but want to try using source admin tool from home.
