Appointing server admins?
I am new to running a UDK server, and I am curious as how to handle giving people admin to my server. Do I just give them the server password? I want to give admin to people I don’t personally know. Is there anyway to give users admin without giving them full control of the server? Just the ability to kick/ban/change map?
I ran a counter-strike server for some time, and giving out the main server password (RCON) was not secure. It can cause a lot of problems.
For instance if I give all the admins the one and only server password, and one of them abuses their powers, I would have to change the password and then give it out again to each admin.
In counterstrike adminship was tied to a steam ID. This prevented a password from being given out (to friends), and also was a way track what each admin is doing, along with other things.
tl:dr… Do I have just give out my server password if I want admins, or is there a better way?
Currently you can only give out the AdminPassword. Sorry!
^^ that, however i would like to see you devs work on a webadmin page so we can access admin while out of game. One similar to killing floor would be nice.
Webadmin, especially the one like in Killing Floor, blows chunks! It would be much better if they were to implement a proper working rcon, that should have been functional at games release, instead. One like Homefront for example, so I can set up a B3 bot to control the server.
Devs dropped the ball here.
