    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!

    Apparently the server wasn't being started up with the file anymore. I got my host to make it so that it is and now it works! :D

    /dev/null is only useful for writing to, not reading from. An EOF is sent when read, which results in the toolkit reporting the stream as closed.

    Is there a reason as to why you are not using GNU Screen?

    I need to see what port it was having issues with.

    Ah, nuts.

    Well, the obvious reason -- it didn't seem to be causing problems before. ;) I'll have to do some tinkering on my scripts.

    You Sir, rule!

    This is on of the best things I've ever. Everyone who can read is able to use your Toolkit (Nice documentation)
    Also I'll never have to restart my Server manually again. Much love will purchase some money to you :)

    PS: Can't wait for the API Modules!

    Can you tell me any errors it prints to cmd?
    If you find the window closes too fast, open the .bat with a text editor and add the word 'pause' to a new line at the end of the file.

    Any news on that update? really could use a auto restart for the read timed out errors about now. It's gotten so much worse with 1060.
  12. Offline


    its possible to use without automatic restarts?
  13. Offline



    should min/max heap size be the same? server has 2048mb allocated for it, should I set min and max to 2048?

    also, I can't seem to get automatic restarts to work. I set it to 4 hours, server ran all day without a restart. .restart in the console works fine.

    and is there any way to have the log file rotate after a restart? maybe move old logs to /Logs/ and start a new one?
  14. Offline


    The framework is almost in place. I will have the source up soonish.

    @Ratchet My preference is to set them to the same value, but it's fine so long as the maximum size is what you would like the server to use in general.
    As for the restart issue, can you briefly set the restart period to about 1m and watch the console to note if anything of interest happens?

    I'm sure there will be a log rotation plugin avaliable for R11. It has been suggested before, and I agree it is very useful.

    This is excellent news! As said right now RTK is the only thing that keeps my server running atm. Thanks again Danick!

    Well my Windows server 2003 still had problems, so i decided to move to a Ubuntu VPS server - And there it runs smoothly

    I could make a video on how to install Remote Toolkit and how to use Putty. (Maybe next week, this week I have to finish all my Summer HW for school.). But for some reason I can't connect to the minecraft command prompt using my IP, but I can connect using my local IP ie. . Oh and is it possible for me to turn my computer off or you could integrate a computer shutdown timer? I have a wake on lan program and I'm always away from the server computer.

    Is there a reason why when I enter a command like /list, it shows me list of players but it also shows me
    "Unknown console command"

    And if I just click enter without anything it shows two of them. I read this in one of the replies above but I think this is a different problem.
  20. This is just a wild guess, but it looks like the port you are trying to connect to using your ip (e.g.: yourip: port) is blocked, are you sitting behind a router? If so, look if you can get to the Router-Interface and set the port-forwarding for the Port (default 25561 iirc). If you have done that already, irgnore my post ;)

    Ah well I never port forwarded 25561 :l. Thought it would work without it. I'll try and see. Thanks!

    yes im running windows xp pro x64 editions ( for those that dont know is the next step up from server 2003 and is based off it) and im pooched bro

    the durn thing wont load my server t'all. i moved off of WINDOWS 7 and that made all my crashes go away, but i still need this for the memory leak. is there someway you can improve compatibility with our windows server editions and my x64 edition?>

    ps; i might end up running ubuntu too soon

    If you do and if you like me doesn't have a lot of Ubuntu/Linux knowledge. This was the video that helped me to setup my server on my Ubuntu server.

    I didn't buy the hosting he recommended, I already had a VPS Ubuntu server for my websites, but those are managed through a admin interface.

    For the server I do have full root access to the server. And Bwana's video was excellent!!

    Huhu @drdanick

    How and where I can insert arguments like this?
    -server -Xmn2G -Xms4G -Xmx8G -XX:+UseConcMarkSweepGC -XX:+UseParNewGC -XX:ParallelGCThreads=4 -XX:+CMSParallelRemarkEnabled -XX:+DisableExplicitGC -XX:MaxGCPauseMillis=500 -XX:SurvivorRatio=16 -XX:TargetSurvivorRatio=90

    Hmm for awhile now I have these scrolling across the console, seems to have started after CB 1060.. Any idea what it could be?

    Just want you to know, You saved my server!
  27. Offline


    the command "Force stop" of Minecraft ReCon doesn't work, it say " socket closed" and the server doesn't stop ("works Restart now and similar").

    Any chance that this will support Spout at any point in the future? I posted on their GitHub and they said it would have to be done on your end. They said you would need this info.

    What operating system are you using, and have you made any changes to the config such that jline may not be disabled?

    Also, make sure you set the initial and maximum heap size options to 4G and 8G respectively.

    Someone is trying to connect through telnet. If you do not know who this could be, I strongly suggest you either change the remote port in or disable telnet.

    Does it work in ?

    As i've mentioned in the past, update plugins would not be appropriate for wrappers. There may be a solution for this in Release 11. If I can't come up with anything, others will be welcome to try.

    In what way should the toolkit actually support spout? As far as i'm aware, spout will function correctly with the toolkit without any work on either of our ends.
