Monitor your Palworld server with AdminPal

As a Palworld server admin, it's useful to monitor your server for who is playing, and sometimes send them announcements if you need to something like restart.


As a Nodecraft customer, this is very easy! You can monitor players from within your portal, as well as use the console to send any commands to your server with ease.

First, you'll need to connect to your server using RCON. RCON is TCP/IP-based communication protocol used by various game servers, which allows console commands to be issued to the server via a "remote console", or RCON. The most common use of RCON is to allow server owners to control their game servers without direct access to the machine the server is running on.

You will need three pieces of information to connect to your server via RCON:

  • Server IP

  • AdminPassword

  • RCONPort

You will also need to ensure that RCONEnabled is set to True. All of these bits of information can be found in your PalWorldSettings.ini file. On a Linux server, this is available at /Pal/Saved/Config/LinuxServer/PalWorldSettings.ini.

As of patch v0.1.5.0 , you will also need to ensure -rcon is on your server's startup command line in order for the server to recognize your changes in your PalWorldSettings.ini.

Once these settings are enabled, you can connect to your server using AdminPal:

Once connected to AdminPal, you will be presented with a list of online players, and their Steam IDs.

If you're having difficulty connecting to your Palworld server over RCON with AdminPal, try some of these common fixes:

  • In the IP field, ensure you only include the server IP without any appended port like :8211.

  • Ensure that RCONEnabled=True appears in your PalWorldSettings.ini config file

  • Double check that you are using the correct AdminPassword and have restarted your server if necessary

  • Double check the RCONPort you are using. This is not your game port.

  • Double check either -rcon or -rconport=25575 are included as a startup argument or on your command line.
