last night i opened up procon to start using it and found myself needing to reconnect....

 

so i entered the info that has always worked....but now it doesnt.

 

i've now spent hours and hours trying every permutation of everything i can think of with no luck.....i've searched forums, etc etc.....

 

i'm going crazy here...please help!!!

 

prep

 

UPDATE

 

i've just managed to do it.....and not by doing what i've read everyone saying everywhere....

 

i did not use the 48888 thats already there.

i did not use port number displayed after the i.p address in my 4netplayers account configuration.

i used the query port next to it.

 

i've been on dozens of websites and watched dozens of youtube videos since yesterday AND NOT A SINGLE ONE said anything about the query port.

 

UPDATE

 

for some reason all my plugins have now disappeared from my procon as well as other stuff.

Maybe some tech head might explain what has happened

If you change the IP and rcon port then a new config is generated.

 

You can copy the contents of the old file to the new file

 

yes >>

 

config/[sERVER-IP]?[sERVER-PORT]

config/[sERVER-IP]?[sERVER-PORT]

............................................

 

 

 

config/[sERVER-IP]?[sERVER-PORT]/*.cfg > xVotemap.cfg *example*

 

 

copy From Server 1 to 2 and restart

Regards the change - I can only assume that the OP has a rented layer, and is running procon locally.

With the connection, it should be using the layer IP and port number

 

Where the query port is coming from - don't know - ISP different terminology ? There is only - rcon port, game port, layer port number.

 

i did not use the 48888 thats already there.

i did not use port number displayed after the i.p address in my 4netplayers account configuration.

i used the query port next to it.

Two ways of connecting

 

Layer

Need username, password, Ip number and LAYER port number

 

Local

Need password, IP number and RCON port number

 

Which is it you were using

entra.....ok i've thought of something....i did give the login details to a friend of mine in austria who is one of my clan leaders....he downloaded procon and logged into it.....i did this so that he can admin the server as well as me....are you saying that might have caused the problem?

 

leib....so there should be a way of restoring the original settings yes_.....unfortunately i dont understand any of what youve said but i will pass your reply on to a guy i know who might be able to sort it out....

 

when i log into the 'my servers' area in my 4netplayers account my server is there in my 'manage configurations' list....it says:

 

config i.d. 194.97.167.179:25200 Queryport: 47200

 

it was the queryport number that finally worked.....i tried every possible permutation using the 48888 and 25200 with no luck.

 

and when i click on 'manage procon layer' in the admin tools section i get this (which doesnt work):

 

Login-Informations

 

Hostname/IP: Gameserver-IP

Port: 48888

Username: admin

Password: Admin-Password

 

also i dont really understand what this 'layer' thing means....i've been running unreal tournament servers for 15 years but this stuff is way more complicated for this old man lol.

 

and i'm not 100percent sure what my Rcon p/word is....i cannot find it saying that anywhere.

 

thanks again to you both, much appreciated!!! i'll be in touch,

 

regards

 

prep

 

UPDATE:

 

i've just now set up a second configuration (so now i've one running tdm maps and another running conquest meaning i can switch between them should i want to) and when setting it up it did indeed ask me for an Rcon password....a friend of mine helped me set up the very first configuration so i need to speak to him to find out what he entered as a value as i cant find it anywhere....i did write down everything he told me as we did it so i've probably got it here on my piece of paper but i'm unsure what is what.....i know i know.....i'm rubbish.....but i've got billions of ports, passwords, i.ps etc etc and what with everything thats happened with procon i'm confused as hell lol.

 

clan: HARDCORE TILL WE DIE

ps add me on battlelog if you ever fancy hooking up for a game

Doesn't work? Ask your layer host for help. They might have not set it up correctly or might not have started it.

 

By the way, please remove IP addresses, port numbers, user names, and suedo passwords from your post. You don't want the wrong people knowing that information.

 

And, tell your friend to stop connecting directly to your game server. Ask your game server host how to change your game server's rcon password so that your friend can no longer connect to the game server. You will want to get your layer server connection working properly and then make an account for your friend to connect to the layer server (a new layer account other than your layer admin account connection). Connecting directly to the game sever can be bad if you also have a layer server connecting to the game server; because they start conflicting and the game server starts doing weird things as a result.

  • Our picks

    • Hi All,

      So I've been thinking about doing something like this for a while but I always talked myself out of it. I want to get some feedback on this idea and how many would think about using it if it was offered.

      In the past I know how hard it was for some users to get a MySQL database going and running the BFACP (since it's a bit requirement heavy in some cases). What I would be doing is offering to manage both of these for you.

      If enough interest was shown in something like this I would definitely think about doing it. Of course, I also know the risks I would be taking in something like this, but to list what I would be offering I guess is this.

      MySQL Hosting


      Daily backups of the database to a remote site & option to download it yourself.


      No limit on how big your database can be (within reason).




      BFACP Hosting (If running AdKats on your layers)


      This would run the newest version (v3.0)


      Will still be available to run on your own hardware


      Will have extra features that are not available for an open source setup (still need to think of good things )


      Able to use your own domain name with the proper DNS setup.




      Both Above



      Please let me know what you think of this idea and vote in the poll. Again not confirming anything like this will happen but if I get enough interest from the community for something like this then please let me know.

      Disclaimer: This will NOT be something affiliated with MyRCON but will be ran through it in terms of a payment processor.
