Plugin v4.0.0 - GUI v2.0.0 - Console v2.0.0


RemoteBukkit allows admins to, with the help of a plugin, remotely use the server's console. You do this by running a client on you computer and you provide this client with the hostname and port on which the RemoteBukkit plugin's server is running. Of course you will also need to provide the client with the server's username and password (set up in the plugin config file) for security.

So, provided the server has the RemoteBukkit plugin installed, admins can remotely use the Bukkit Console to control the server and execute Bukkit console commands server side.

RemoteBukkit does support multiple, simultaneous, connected clients.


Major Plugin Update v4.0.0

The latest plugin release (v4.0.0) adds support for CB v1.7.2.

Major Plugin Update v3.0.0

The latest plugin release (v3.0.0) adds support for multiple users.

Minor Plugin Update v2.5.0

The latest plugin release (v2.5.0) adds a number of highly requested features as well as a fix for a critical exploit.



Simply place the plugin in the standard Bukkit plugin directory and it will automatically generate its configuration the next time the server is run. The config file format is very simple, but offers several flexible options. The defaults are:

port: 25564
verbose: true
logsize: 500
  - user: username
    pass: password

All avaliable options and their descriptions are listed below.

port25564The port on which the RemoteBukkit server will listen (this MUST be different to the Bukkit server's port number)
verbosetrueWhether or not RemoteBukkit will produce verbose logging information (in the form "client X dispatched command Y").
logsize500The maximum number of log lines to send to a client upon successful connection.
users(list)A list of the users which are permitted to connect to the RemoteBukkit server. The syntax for defining multiple user entries can be found in the example below.

A more complex example configuration file can be found below (for demonstration purposes).

port: 6001
verbose: false
logsize: 12
  - user: escortkeel
    pass: secretpassword
  - user: bukkitserver
    pass: thepassword
  - user: minecraft
    pass: server

GUI Client

RemoteBukkit offers a very simple and easy to use GUI client which you can use to connect to the plugin. Just double click on the GUI's jarfile to run it. The GUI features a self-explanatory interface where you supply the hostname, port, username and password of the RemoteBukkit server.

Run the GUI with no arguments to open the Login Dialog. Run the GUI with the following arguments and it will attempt to use the supplied parameters to login automatically:

Use: [hostname:port] [user] [pass]


  • --help - Prints this help message.

Console Client

If you prefer to use a console-based application to connect to the RemoteBukkit plugin you can too! The console argument syntax is very simple but the program but will print help information if you supply no/the wrong number of/invalid arguments:

Use: [hostname:port] [user] [pass] <switches>


  • --help - Prints the help message.
  • --nolog - Instructs the server not to send any log information to the client.
  • --exec <command> - Sends <command> to the server and then terminates. Useful for scripts. Make sure that you surround commands containing spaces in inverted commas (e.g. "say Hello, World!").

Telnet Client (advanced)

RemoteBukkit also supports telnet connections. Just connect to the normal server port as you would with the console or GUI clients and then supply the server's username and then password on separate lines, followed by a third, blank line.


$ telnet [hostname:ip]
[blank line]

    Hi, this plugin is really useful, but sometimes I can't use a pc so I have to use my phone but I can't use the GUI or console (not even with an emulator), so I was wondering if you could create an android app for this. Thanks!

    Not sure but I think this plugin may be causing a memory leak with my server. I am running my server on 1.7.10 with the latest Carbon hack. I would get the blank screen like the previous post and the only way I could get my server to work is kill java by rebooting my server. I've recently removed this from my server to see how it works. So far, I have had no crashing. Please update this plugin as it is really useful since I am using MineOS Turnkey and the built in console is a little slow. Thanks! :)

    Mineville, Enjoy the Fun!
