ts-rcon v1.1.3

Rcon client implemented in Node.js with TypeScript


npm Build Status

ts-rcon is a simple library for connecting to RCON servers in node.js implemented in TypeScript. Based on pushrax/node-rcon. It implements the protocol used by Valve's Source and GoldSrc engines, as well as many other game servers.

It was originally created to connect to Minecraft's RCON server.



$ npm install ts-rcon


See examples/stdio.js for a simple example.

Some games use TCP and some use UDP for their RCON implementation. To tell node-rcon which protocol to use, pass it an options object like so:

var options = {
  tcp: false,       // false for UDP, true for TCP (default true)
  challenge: false  // true to use the challenge protocol (default true)
client = new Rcon(host, port, password, options);

Here's a non-exhaustive list of which games use which options:

Any Source gameTCPN/A
Any GoldSrc gameUDPYes
Call of DutyUDPNo

Source games include CS:S, CS:GO, TF2, etc. GoldSrc games include CS 1.6, TFC, Ricochet (lol), etc.

If there's a game you know uses a certain protocol, feel free to submit a pull request.

Please submit a bug report for any game you try that doesn't work!
