    Dinnerbone tweeted this around 23 hours ago. I just saw it, and now my head is filled with "how"

    Anyone got any idea how this should work, or is it kept as a Bukkit secret for now?

    PS: Sorry for the weird title, i accidentially clicked the "send" button (or what it's called), before i saw, the title was wrong

    It's a feature of the vanilla server.

    The vanilla code for 1.9pr4+ Supports the RCON protocol, used by source games for remote consoles.
    I have a php class on my desktop that can auth and send commands over this. Would be very nice over needing plugins to do this.

    @tehbeard Mind showing your php class, or just do a tiny tutorial on how to connect via RCON?

    @r3Fuze , I make no claim of it working past the current 1.9pr4, but for experimental purposes it's quite neat.

    Code:
    <?php
    /*
    RCON remote console class, modified for minecraft compability by Tehbeard.
    
    !!!YOU MUST CONFIGURE RCON ON YOUR MINECRAFT SERVER FOR THIS TO WORK
    AT TIME OF WRITING ONLY 1.9pr4+ HAVE BUILTIN RCON SUPPORT!!!
    
    Example Code:
    ============
    include_once("rcon.class.php"); //Include this file
    $r = new rcon("127.0.0.1",25575,"foobar"); //create rcon object for server on the rcon port with a specific password
    if($r->Auth()){ //Connect and attempt to authenticate
    {
      $r->rconCommand("say Saving in 10 seconds!"); //send a command
      sleep(10);
      $r->rconCommand("save-all"); //send a command
      $r->rconCommand("say Save complete!");//send a command
      echo $r->rconCommand("list");//send a command, echo returned value
    }
    ============
    
    
    
    Based upon the following work:
    [<<<
    	Basic CS:S Rcon class by Freman.  (V1.00)
    	----------------------------------------------
    	Ok, it's a completely working class now with with multi-packet responses

    Nice, it works on Pre5! But, it gives me errors after i submit the command. I'll try to fix it.

    I would like to note that you should be very careful about using rcon, especially what networks you use it on, such as an unencrypted wifi connection.

    Rcon has no encryption, so when you send your rcon password it is sent in the clear! Using SSH or other encrypted methods for remote console access should still be your primary method if you can use it.
