Become admin on a Nodecraft Rust serverLast updated: 02/16/20
Firstly, you will need to install an RCON program on your PC. We recommend RustAdmin for ease of use.
- Enable the Web RCON setting, and enter an RCON password via your Game Settings -> Advanced within NodePanel.
- Save and restart your server.
- Configure Rust Admin to access your server's RCON:
Click the Configuration tab
Select the WebRcon option under RCON Type
In the Server window:
Put your server's IP in the IP section (do not include the port)
Put the server port in the server port section
Put the RCON port in the RCON Port section (You can view the RCON port on the game settings page)
Put the admin password you set up in your game settings in the password section
Save the settings.
To connect, click the server tab in the top left corner, and then click connect.
Once you've logged into Rust Admin, run the following commands:
server.writecfg ownerid STEAM64ID "playername" server.writecfg
You must replace STEAM64ID with a valid Steam64ID (such as 76561198047699606) which you can obtain using the following website: https://steamid.co/
If you add yourself to admin while on the server, you must re-log onto the server to access admin.
