First of all we're going to get RCON functionality setup on the server. To do so please follow these steps:

  1. Stop your server.
  2. Click "Mod Manager"
  3. Install 'Battleye Extended Controls' - as DayZ does not natively support RCON.
  4. Perform the steps detailed in this guide to set your RCON password correctly
  5. Start your server

RCON is now setup - so now we're going to discuss how to use it - there are several methods.

Method 1: Using our Gamepanel's built-in RCON Client

  1. Click "Current Activity and Stats".
  2. Then click "RCON Client".
  3. Type in your RCON password in the password field, and type in the command you want to execute, for example players
  4. The output will be displayed in the same window.

Method 2: Using an external third-party RCON client

  1. Download and install a third-party RCON client such as BattleWarden
  2. Add your server using the RCON Info on your server's Gamepanel home page.
  3. Execute any RCON Commands you desire.

Method 3: Automating RCON Commands using our Gamepanel's Scheduled Tasks system

  1. Click "Scheduled Tasks" in your server's Gamepanel home page.
  2. Click "New".
  3. Change the "Task Type" to 'Console/RCON Command'
  4. Click the blue "New" button to create the task.
  5. Type in your RCON Password into the RCON Password field.
  6. Type in the command you want to automate in the Command to Execute field.
  7. Type a name for the task in the name field.
  8. Change Type to the time period you desire the task to run for E.G Daily
  9. Type or use the calendar/time buttons to set the date/time the task will run at E.G 11:59 PM
  10. Save the task in the top left.
  11. This task will now run automatically on the time/date set with no further interaction required from you!


RCON Commands:

players - lists players on the server and their ID

kick idHERE - kicks player of the ID specified

ban idHERE - bans player of the ID specified

say -1 messageHERE - sends a server message you specify


A big thank you to the developers of BEC as DayZ would not have RCON support at all without their work.
