Topic: [MISC] Accessing the external console / econ

:: Setting it up

I assume you already know how to setup a server, if you don't, please read this or this.

The settings you need to know to set up the econ are:

ec_port (Port to use for the external console)
ec_password (External console password)
ec_bantime (The time a client gets banned if econ authentication fails. 0 just closes the connection)
ec_auth_timeout (Time in seconds before the the econ authentification times out)
ec_output_level (Adjusts the amount of information in the external console)

After adding them to your config file, launch the server.


:: Accessing the econ

In some computers (running Windows), telnet may be disabled by default.
Open the Control Panel and go to Programs and Features.
Click on "Turn Windows features on or off" and in the Windows Features dialog box, tick Telnet Client check box.

Open up the command line and type: (If you are using Windows: go to Start > Run > type "cmd" > ok.)

telnet localhost *port*
(Replace *port* with the one you set up in the cfg)

Type in the password and there you go. smile


You may also use puTTY to log in. Download it here.
Open puTTY.exe. Check "Telnet", type "localhost" in IP Address' box and the port you set up. Hit "Open".

Re: [MISC] Accessing the external console / econ

For unix-like operating systems just use "nc <ip> <port>" to connect, simply type your commands afterwards. (nc stands for netcat), you can use it to write scripts too.
For example, assume we have a file that we want to have executed, let's say it's "script", then you could use this command line (for bash):

echo "<password>" | cat - script | nc <ip> <port>"

Re: [MISC] Accessing the external console / econ

The econ isnt comptible with IPv4 Ips (or adresses)


my hosts:
::1            localhost
127.0.0.1        ipv4.test
::1            ipv6.test

localhost and ipv6.test works well.
127.0.0.1 and ipv4.test does not work hmm

edit: ops, its working with ec_bindaddr 127.0.0.1

I think that what sl noticed is quite interesting and should be written in the first post with the other directives. The ec_binaddr is a quite useful feature.

ec_bindaddr 127.0.0.1 => only connections allowed in local
ec_bindaddr 45.78.127.32 => only connections allowed on the ip 45.78.127.32
ec_bindaddr 0.0.0.0 => possible from anywhere (default)

Default is localhost (aka 127.0.0.1 for IPv4 and ::1 for IPv6), see src/engine/shared/config_variables.h:96.

Re: [MISC] Accessing the external console / econ

I can not find the ec_*  commands in 0.6.2 are they removed ?
I typed them into rcon but it does not know these commands. yikes

And could anyone explain me how to use them with linux exactly?

Luck is allowed

Re: [MISC] Accessing the external console / econ

You put them in .cfg not rcon

11

Re: [MISC] Accessing the external console / econ

Thank you Broken it is working now.
I just was confused because in 0.6.1 ec_* commands were accessible in rcon too.

Re: [MISC] Accessing the external console / econ

It's mainly useful if you get banned or passworded out of your own server and don't want to restart, or for rogue admins.

Re: [MISC] Accessing the external console / econ

its also useful for accessing the server with other tools like a website.

uptee - a simple web interface for hosting and maintaining teeworlds servers
teerace - a website gathering results of trusted Race-mod servers providing global ranking and statistics
