Wrong Rcon = Server Crash

Post by Adonixx » Sat Sep 05, 2009 7:22 am

I have KAC running on a few of our ..., on all of our scrim servers right now and its been owning like crazy..

Our servers however crash every now and then when someone enters a wrong rcon and attempts to execute commands. Generally it doesn't do this and just bans the person. Could these crashes be KAC related?

No, this is VALVe related. VALVe's built-in RCON protection just doesn't work like its suppose to. When someone enters the wrong RCON password enough to trigger the built in ban it will crash the server under certain circumstances.

I'll see if I can build a fix. But it will disable VALVe's built-in RCON protection.

Wow that's craziness. In that case I'm going to increase the wrong rcon ban amount or whatev to 50.

Thanks for the heads up.

It can't go above 10. There's a script written for sourcemod which will allow you to dodge the crash in a way:

KAC Beta should already contain the fix for the RCON crash.

Still seem to have this problem with KAC 1.2.0.1

Code: Select all

L 10/20/2009 - 21:42:20: World triggered "Round_Start"
L 10/20/2009 - 21:42:26: rcon from "75.82.95.45:58535": Bad Password
L 10/20/2009 - 21:42:26: rcon from "75.82.95.45:58535": Bad Password
L 10/20/2009 - 21:42:26: rcon from "75.82.95.45:58535": Bad Password
L 10/20/2009 - 21:42:26: World triggered "killlocation" 
Then crash.

KAC 1.2.0.2 already contains a fix.

Add this to your server.cfg to activate.

Code: Select all

kac_rcon_crashprevent 1
Please note it disables SRCDS's ban on failed passwords.
