    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!
    For server administrators

    Anyway, 50 bucks donated, well deserved good sir!

    Is there a good init script that I can use to ensure this starts at server boot or should I just use the cron @Reboot to accomplish this?

    It is likely that the required TCP port is not forwarded to the server. Are you hosting your server with a VPS?

    You need to launch the wrapper in place of craftbukkit.

    Thank you for the kind donation, I do appreciate it :)
    I would be lying if I said this didn't have an effect on the speed at which I investigated the issue (I spent a few hours on it before you updated your post). I actually did uncover an issue pertaining to most failsafe forceful shutdown/restarts, so I will have that corrected in the next minor update, which will be up in the next few days.

    You can use update-rc.d on any arbitrary script and have it run on startup. These are run as a superuser, so you may want to launch the server with another user from within your startup script.

    There will be other ways of achieving the same goal, but this is what I have been doing for the last few years.

    no, i host off my computer. i have checked my forwarded ports and 25561 is indeed forwarded.

    ok, wait, nvm, it turns out i never did forward that port. sorry for the bother, ill just go slap myself now.

    also, for the wiki, theres an app that allows telnet access on your ipod, maybe you can add that to the section on remote server control for iOS. i havent tested it yet cause the ports werent forwarded.

    I run a GSP and a customer pointed me to this plugin and it looks great. BUT.
    Would it be possible to put some overwriting properties in the main launcher ?

    Using the configuration files, the user can override the heap sizes, IP and ports of the main java process. In a shared environment this could lead to some ... bad consequences :p

    So would there be an option of having something like

    java -Xmx30M -Xms30M -XX:MaxPermSize=40M -jar Minecraft_RKit.jar -McXmx -MxXms -IP -Port USER:pASS

    That would override some of the settings from the configuration files ?

    Another option for us would be to lock down files like some other hosts do, but I'm really not a fan of that.

    Thanks !

    You actually made a similar request earlier in the thread, though that was only to force the use of a particular port.

    An important focus of Release 11 is to make the toolkit far more VPS/GSP friendly, particularly by providing the ability to override all configuration keys with a set of command line arguments. I should be able to work this into the next Release 10 update, considering there is some demand for it.
    I'll notify you when it is updated to support this.

    understand up untill here. what is this supposed to open with? do i execute it with a bat or what
    From the included graphical UDP client

    1. Double click the MinecraftRestartController.jar that is included in the UDP client folder of the downloaded .zip.
    2. Enter the username and password you set when you set up the remote toolkit. (If you left it as user:pass (you shouldn't have!) your username would be user and your password would be pass)
    3. Enter the hostname/ip of the server etc...

    I'm using craftbukkit 1240 and It cant access jarfile when i run it. (Running the .sh file in Ubuntu linux)

  18. I highly suspect your minecraft-server-jar property is missing the .jar suffix at the end of your craftbukkit-0.0.1-SNAPSHOT. Just just a shot in the dark.

    I guess ill be the bastard who asks this time ..... I notice your not on bukkitdev yet and I was looking to use your plug in an [1185] build, would you happen to have a link for me? :)

    The 1240 version of the plugin also works for 1185 CB. It works perfectly for me on 1185.

    HELP after step 1 i confused?
  22. Offline


    I assume you launch the toolkit with the included .bat. Did you remember to open it with a text editor and replace the default USER:PASS argument with your own username/password?
  23. Offline


    also i dont now if this is me or not when i shutdown server using this plugin java continues to run and i cant use anything related to server untill i manually end that proccess

    yep. i did all that i meant the step 1 i posted

    You need to enter .stopwrapper in the console to stop the server, not just close the cmd window.

    Ah, so your issue is starting the UDP client? All you need to do is double click on MinecraftRestartController.jar, as if it were an .exe or .bat.

    but it doesnt run like one. it trys to open up with other programs
  28. Offline


    You need to right click > open with > choose default program

    Browse to javaw.exe (C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jre6\bin\javaw.exe)

    with autosave on my server freezes the chat and block placeing during the save progress for some seconds
    is it just me?

    The toolkit merely passes a "save-all" command through the console. It is normal for this to cause some lag, especially for large worlds.

    OMFG no mad at u or anything took me 4 hours to figure out users are case sensitive.
