    Minecraft RemoteToolkit
    -Less downtime, more fun for your players, more power to you!

    Are you a Minecraft server administrator? Do you value up-time and stability? Do you fancy the ability to remotely control your server, both in-game and out of game, in a myriad of useful ways from a plethora of different devices?
    If you answered yes to any of the above, then the Minecraft RemoteToolkit is for you!

    What the Minecraft RemoteToolkit Plugin and Wrapper do for you:
    • Provides almost perfect server uptime with no need for action from an owner/administrator!
    • Have your server save and restart at any time period with configurable restart warnings!
    • The Toolkit guarantees a restart within the set restart period, even if your server crashes, becomes unresponsive, or encounters a "SEVERE" exception!
    • Remotely control every function of the Toolkit, even from your smart phone!
    • Full remote console access via telnet with support for multiple terminal types!
    • Telnet daemon conforms to current Telnet related RFCs!
    • Customizable alert messages!
    • Fully extendable though 3rd party modules!
    • Full feature set works with most craftbukkit builds!
    • Most features work with any Minecraft server variation, even vanilla!
    • Telnet can be disabled!

    I just wanted to take a moment to say thank you! This toolkit has made it immensely easier to administrate my server and has resulted in 30+ day uptimes. It's truly a blessing to have such an active developer for all this time, I'll certainly try to donate to you if I can.

    When try to use the RTKController, after it just says 'Timed out...'

    Is there anything I did wrong?

    EDIT: I realize the information was a bit vague, but there isn't much detail I have to give. CB build number 1337 running on Mac OSX 1.6.8 x86_64

    First edit and replace USER: PASS with something more secure:
    To start the server:
    screen -S minecraft sh
    When screen starts, press "ctrl-a ctrl-d" to detach it from the console, and "screen -r minecraft" to retach it(or use other methods of connecting to the session).

    What's the difference between the RTK "HOLD" and the Bukkit "STOP". It seems that when you hold the server, Bukkit is still running but it won't accept connections from players. Is it possible to start a stopped Bukkit server with RTK ? Or does it only supports HOLD/UNHOLD ?

    Also, is there a ToolkitAction equivalent to the CommandType.DISABLE_RESTARTS ? I'd like to be able to stop Bukkit and disable the auto restart done by RemoteToolkit. Should I just use RTKInterface for this one?

    Thanks. :)

    Are you running the UDP client within the same network as your server? If not, you need to remember to forward UDP port 25561 from your router to whatever local IP address is hosting your server.

    HOLD actually terminates the bukkit server, while leaving the toolkit running (this is useful for server admins who wish to perform an upgrade to bukkit without actually stopping the server). You can stop both the server and the wrapper with STOPWRAPPER. I am deprecating the option to disable restarts in that manner, so it is wise not to use it.

    I got it working, thanks! Was on a different network, but now I am presented with a new problem...

    I have my server set to restart every two hours, and it was working for a couple of days, but recently, the server has been restarting every 5 mins and I don't know what's wrong. I re-installed the wrapper and it is still happening. I am running cb build number 1337

    Can you pastebin a reasonable section of your console output (not log) around the time the server is restarted?
  11. Offline


    Seems it was restarting every 10 mins in this excerpt.

    EDIT: The random restarts only happen when I am remotely controlling the console via ConnectBot on my smartphone
  12. Offline


    That looks like a log paste. I need to see the actual console output, since the bukkit log does not contain toolkit output.

    I restarted the wrapper, console was closed. Sorry.

    I do believe it was a one-time thing, nothing is wrong now. Everything is running smoothly =]

    Hello. I have a suggestion or question. Is it possible to make the telnet console display the last few lines that were printed to the console prior to connecting via telnet? I used to use screen on linux, every time i attatched to the console i would see all that the console printed prior to my connection. (ie player joins, and leaving, or errors)

    The toolkit supports build 1337. It sounds to me like you were trying to put the wrapper in the plugins/ directory. For information on how to set up the wrapper/plugin correctly, please see the wiki.

    I cannot correct this. The toolkit is simply printing the '' system property provided by the java virtual machine. This should not affect the operation of the toolkit.
  24. I've switched to McMyAdmin because it has more vast configuration. I'd be willing to try this again when it adds some more features I require for my server:
    • Permissions Integration (SuperPerms)
    • Web Console (GUI)
    • Scheduler (Every 10 minutes blah blah blah etc)
    • Server backups
    I used this for a while but was amazed by the things I saw in McMyAdmin, but I'd be glad to try this again in the future.

    Pre-release 6 came out today, and I'm having trouble using it with the wrapper. It loads up, but after it says "27 achievements", and I press enter, nothing happens.

    hello! having a bit of trouble...i am trying to text to see if the remote toolkit works and everything so i attempted a /restartsrv USER:pASS command...yet when i do so the console says
    "restarting server..." and never changes, and it never restarts the server...
    i am also getting "First attempt at checking for presence of Bukkit RTK plugin..." then second and third and nothing happens. unfortunately when i try to stop the server after issuing the /restartsrv command, it will not let me, even by closing out the cmd window the server continues running so i cant restart and attempt to fix it. thank you for your help and your wonderful plugin!

    You can always end the task through Task Manager. It sounds like you don't have the RemoteToolKit plugin in your plugin folder.
