How do I use RCON with Rust?

Post by Vanderburg » Fri Jun 23, 2017 5:58 pm

Recently, Facepunch updated Rust to no longer use the regular RCON method, as the majority of other games still do. Now, Rust uses RCON over WebSockets, or webRCON. You can create your own RCON webpage using HTML5 or Javascript, but Facepunch has created one for everyone to be able to use here:

Remember, the default port for Rust RCON in the standard game server system is 28020.

These are some useful rcon commands:

find . - Returns a list of commands/settings hints (some of them will work as-is through rcon, some in shortened form, some not at all)
server.seed - Returns the current server seed
status - Shows connected players and other basic information about the server
version - Shows the current server version
kick [name] - Kicks player with this name from the server
ban [name] - Bans player with this name from the server
save - Saves the world to disk
fps - Shows the current FPS of the server
