    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

    I love youre Plugin, but i dont like the Telnet-UI and stuff.
    So, i just wrote a little GUI-Client for it. You can find it here .
    Hope you like it.

  5. You need to put the java executable in your path. Google it, because my instructions for doing it would probably be convoluted, confusing, and unnecessarily complex. :)

    its not detecting 'connection reset' spam which is making server unaccesible after some random crash

    btw. is it possible to implement server restart on given console message?
  7. Offline


    ok.. before this plugin... server would crash once every 3 or 4 days. I got this to recover from those crashes automagically... works great there.. but...since ive installed this plugin.. it makes my server crash 3 or 4 times a day. the plugin recovers itsself after a few minutes, but I see this to be a greater hassle than recovering my server manually every 3 or 4 days. Why does this plugin just stop my server all on its own.

    also.. this plugin makes my server take like 10 minutes to do a restart. This plugin is being removed from my server... causes nothing but issues.

    i am curious about something. in the maximum heap setting or whatever it is called, the one that allocates RAM in, it only lets me put in around 2500-2600 MB's, but my computer has 4 gigs of RAM (my OS, Ubuntu, tells me i have 3.9). i did a gig to MB conversion, and it wouldn't even run the server with that number i got from the conversion (3993 MB), the 2500 or 2600-ish number was as close as i could get. i'm just worried i may be diminishing my performance, unless there's something i don't know about allocating RAM and what not.

    but I can already do everything this plugin does using ssh, screen and a couple of shell scripts...
    lol jk, nice plugin but I'll stick using ssh until you get the performance issues sorted out.

    That's because you need to leave a little bit of ram for your operating system to use.
    Edit: Btw, you can use the command "top" (it's a linux command not a bukkit/mincraft command) to see how much ram is free. You get something like this:
    look at the "4788924k free" part. Just convert that number to megabytes (divide it by 1024) and leave a little bit extra ram incase something unexpected happens.

    drdanick Is it possible to catch the name of a user logging in and/or to show the names of connected users? I trust the users I give access to, but, just in case, I would love to see the names get logged when they connect.

    I noticed, that if I start craftbukkit directly that I have in console some sort of command line where I can use up/down arrows to go through history of commands. Unfortunetly if I start craftbukkit through RToolkit there is no such thing and all I can see is ^[[A when pressing up/down arrows.

    Is there any solution to fix this?
  20. No, but the good Doctor has said he's working on it for the next major release. (Release 11.)

    This has something to do with Windows XP not liking how processes hook into the I/O thread, or something, mentioned on the SimpleServer wrapper configuration. You have to press enter for it to load up... This has been an issue with the server wrappers I've used, but it doesn't affect me much as I do not run my servers on Windows XP.

    Strange bug. My server keeps restarting for no reason every 5-10 minutes. Here is my config:

    Just curious; What does the plugin do? (Not the wrapper)
  24. Offline


    Ok, I think I found the problem. AnCasino plugin was causing it. Not sure why, though. There were no errors.'s not AnCasino. It keeps restarting every 5 minutes, still.

    Not sure if that would be something it could detect without the potential for false positives and restarts erroneously.
  30. You seem to have found the relevant post where the good Doctor (I'm calling you that forever, BTW) said he's working on it for Release 11 and admits it doesn't work right now. There's really nothing more to be said. When Release 11 comes out the toolkit will be compatible. Until then there is no way to just make it work the way you want it to.

    Hey developers I got a great idea for you. Since this plugin requires a custom java code to be executed that isnt really possible in a rental dedicated server where there is only a web interface to start a specific .jar version of craftbukkit. So my suggestion is to make a .jar launcher for this plugin that will start it rather then using the .bat for windows or the .sh file. Servers owner said that if i'd had a java plugin he could add that to the web interface list and i could use the wrapper. Since i'm not a java coder i need you to make it happen. And since the .bat file includes a user:pass that has to be moved into a separate .txt file or into wrapper-proporties.txt for easy access since i won't have access to the .jar that will start everything. Thank you.
